Wildcats Score 20 Goals to Win Two of Three Games

It's safe to say the Western Nevada College women's soccer team was motivated after losing a close 1-0 game to Grossmont College on Saturday. The Wildcats (4-1) came back in a big way, dominating the day's second game 17-1 over Lassen College and Sunday's contest 3-1 against the College of Sequoias in the Victor Valley College Cup in Victorville.

"We weren't disappointed because Grossmont is always one of the top-ranked teams in California," Head Coach Hillary Arthur said. "They just got lucky at the net and we had some good opportunities to win, especially in the last 30 seconds."

Grossmont's goalkeeper had seven saves in the contest, while Western's goalkeepers, Allie Otto and Kalah Minter, piled up 10.

In Friday's second game, Jordan Foreman had a record day for the Wildcats scoring five goals. Alexia Balmaseda and Jessi Chitwood added two goals apiece, while Meghan Olson, Devan Wellington, Cassie Romeo, Marina Tharin, Rachel Van Roy, Virginia Loyola, Samantha Perry, and Ashley Winter each pitched in a goal. Romeo, Winter, Chitwood, Balmaseda, Van Roy, and Kim Duke all had assists.

On Sunday, Balmaseda scored two goals for the Wildcats and Forman added another. Chitwood pitched in an assist. "It's not a big surprise that we're 4-1," added Arthur. "We have a lot of talent on this team and they are in great shape."

After five straight on the road, WNC opens at home against Salt Lake Community College 2 p.m. Saturday at the Edmonds Sports Complex.
