Panther soccer scores against Mustangs but fails to win

The City College soccer lost 4-1 Sept. 27 to San Joaquin Delta College.

City College, now 0-6 overall and 0-2 in the league, was unable to continue  the pace it established after coming back from an early goal scored by Delta  in the second minute of the opening half.

Sophomore center-midfielder Isabel Becerra, 21, criminal justice and sports  therapy majors, led the comeback charge by dribbling past two defenders  and burying a shot into the upper corner of the Delta net just outside the  diving goalies reach.

“You just have to glance at the goal and pick a corner,” Becerra said. “The pressure helps me to control my surroundings.”

The goal was made possible in part by a big defensive steal by freshman forward Jessica Pena who delivered the ball down the line to Becerra in enough time for Becerra to drive it into the net.

“We all kept a positive attitude,” Becerra said. “We can progress as a team if we keep that mindset.”

San Joaquin Delta College scored minutes before the end of the first half. Even though the goal came close to half time, City College kept pushing forward and was inches away from a tie, but missed a hard shot just over the crossbar.

The Mustangs were able to seal the win scoring twice in the second half, despite the big defensive efforts of Becerra and midfielder Madison Peterson.

Dulce Espinoza’s final Mustang goal in the second was the haymaker that finalized the outcome of the day for City College.

“The core of our problems is communication,” Becerra said about the sense of unity the team members had in the first half, and said the unity needed to be carried on throughout the game.

“Communication and unity are the biggest things we should take out of this game,” Becerra said. “Practice makes perfect.”

The women’s soccer team will compete again 3:30 p.m. Sept. 30 at Diablo Valley College in Diablo Valley.
