Facing its third straight tough opponent on Tuesday afternoon, the Santa Barbara City College’s women’s soccer team weathered a hot day and rallied to post its third straight tie, 1-1, at Fresno City College.
Iris Torres took advantage of a defensive error to put the Rams (5-1-1, No. 4 in nation) ahead in the 35th minute. The Vaqueros, ranked No. 3 in the state with a 3-0-3 record, tied it in the 62nd minute when Kila MacNaughton scored in traffic.
“I felt we were the better team, and we had a good positive attitude after going down 1-0,” SBCC coach John Sisterson said. “We only allowed one shot in the the second half, and we had relentless pressure.”
SBCC, unbeaten in its last 14 home matches (10-0-4), will host to Mt. San Antonio College at 2 p.m. Friday.
