The Vaqueros, ranked No. 6 in the state, are 8-0-4 overall and 3-0 in the WSC. No. 7 Ventura (9-1-3), which plays host to SBCC on Oct. 17, is also 3-0 in conference.
“The conditions were difficult for both teams in the first half,” SBCC coach John Sisterson said. “We played much better in the second half when we started to move the ball really well.”
SBCC goalie Meghan Maiwald was 45 seconds away from her sixth straight shutout when June Gullien got behind the Vaquero defense and beat the Vaquero keeper.
It was the third straight win for Santa Barbara, which is 5-0-1 in its last six outings and also 5-0-1 at home this season.
