Wolverines Continue Dominant Play in Victory

The San Bernardino Valley College women's soccer team turned in another dominant performance Tuesday afternoon, defeating Palomar 3-0 at SBVC.

The Wolverines controlled the flow of the game throughout, firing 15 shots on goal, to only two for the Comets – both of those coming in the first half. Palomar goalkeeper Rosa Lopez, who made 11 saves, was able to keep San Bernardino Valley at bay for most of the first half.

But with less than five minutes to go in the opening 45 minutes, Stephanie Doran ran down a crossing pass from Morgan Simmang and tucked it into the goal to give the Wolverines a 1-0 lead at the end of a half.

In the second half, the Wolverines kept the pressure on. They sent another nine shots at the Palomar net, converting two. The first came as Lexis Cortez converted from the penalty spot in the 52nd minute. Then, in the 86th minute, Natalie Davis kept the ball alive to the left of the goal with a towering header that crossed the goal mouth where Bianca Mitchell buried the shot from 6 yards out.

Natalie Carreon went the distance in goal for the Wolverines, recording two saves.

The Wolverines will be back on home turf Friday to take on Imperial Valley in a game originally scheduled to be played at Imperial Valley. Kickoff is 3 p.m.
