Home Opener a Breeze as SBCC Kicks Off Women’s Soccer Season

Wahlund and Wright lead the way as the Vaqueros have their way with the ball in 10-0 rout.

Danna Wahlund scored four goals and Brieanna Wright added a hat trick as the Santa Barbara City College women’s soccer team breezed past College of the Sequoias 10-0 in their home opener at La Playa Stadium.

Wright, a sophomore midfielder from Santa Cruz, has five goals in two games for the Vaqueros (2-0). She opened the scoring in the 13th minute with a rebound goal on a shot by Courtney Belsheim. Laura Spivack made it 2-0 in the 17th minute, and Wahlund added another tally in the 27th minute on an assist from Kila MacNaughton.

The Vaqueros, who led 5-0 at halftime, erupted for four scores in the first 15 minutes of the second half. Wahlund got her hat trick in the 50th minute and collected her fourth goal on a header from point-blank range in the 57th minute. The final three goals were scored by Maria Johansen, Jamie Kurcharski and Wright.

“It was fairly evident early on that we were going to have a lot of possessions,” SBCC coach John Sisterson said. “It was good to get everybody in and seeing how they handled a game situation.”

SBCC improved to 9-0-3 in its last 12 at home. The Vaqueros return to action Sept. 12 with a 1 p.m. game against L.A. Mission College.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
