Lady Mustangs Soccer Flies Past The Hawks
The Master’s College women’s soccer team notched a very important win on Saturday afternoon at San Diego Christian. Lead by two freshmen, Master’s won the game 4-1 to raise their record to 10-8 (4-5) while San Diego Christian’s record is now 5-11 (1-8).
The first half saw a lot of action from Coach Lewis’s team as they produced 10 shots total, five of which were on goal, and three of which found the back of the net to give Master’s a strong lead going into halftime.
In the 25th minute, Jessica Long took a rebound off the cross bar and netted the first goal of the game to give TMC a 1-0 advantage.
That lead would evaporate quickly, however, as just over a minute later the Hawks would even the score. Kelly Gabrielle crossed a ball into the box and Nicole Quintanilla headed the ball past Ilyssa Espiritu to knot the score at 1-1. That would be the only blemish on a very good game from the Lady Mustangs.
Just as the first lead did not last long, the 1-1 tie was erased quickly as well. In the 32nd minute of play, Katie Trevino scored an unassisted goal to put TMC ahead for good. Trevino dribbled from the right side of the box to the left side and ripped the ball past the keeper for the 2-1 lead.
The last highlight of the first half came just two minutes later as Jessica Long would add another goal. Long took an assist from Trevino and buried her second goal of the game.
Coach Lewis’s team took a 3-1 lead into the half.
The second half of play was all Master’s once again as they outshot San Diego 5-2 in shots on goal. Espiritu, the Lady Mustang goalie, had a perfect half as she would not surrender another goal.
TMC would add their final goal of the match in the 62nd minute. Bobbie Roberts crossed the ball in from the right side, and Katie Trevino took the pass and tallied her second goal of the day to give TMC a 4-1 victory.
Long and Trevino, both freshmen, lead the way with two goals each for Master’s.
