Slow Start Hinders Lady Mustangs In Santa Barbara
The Master's College women's soccer team took a tough road loss at No. 25 Westmont on Tuesday afternoon. After the 2-1 defeat, No. 14 TMC's record now stands at 7-4 (1-1) while Westmont rises to 7-2 (2-0.)
The first half was all Westmont as the score going into halftime was 2-0. The Warriors got on the board early with a goal in the tenth minute. Jenny Martinez took an assist from Ashley Correa and buried a goal from ten yards out.
Toward the end of the first half the home team would strike again. This time it was Ashley Correa scoring the goal, and the assist was from Tiffan Dimaculangan. Correa netted the goal from 12 yards out.
The easy thing would have been for the Lady Mustang's to pack it in, but the team responded out of halftime.
Natasha Coyle scored unassisted from nine yards out to cut the deficit to one, but Coach Lewis's team could not complete the comeback though both squads were even in shots on goal for the match.
The Lady Mustangs return to action at home on Saturday against Azusa Pacific. The game will start at 11:00 am.
