Westmont Soccer: Warriors Get 1st Win with 3-1 Victory over S. Oregon

Patience and possession pay off for women Warriors.

Westmont women’s soccer team enjoyed a 3-1 win over Southern Oregon on Saturday in Irvine to tally its first victory of the 2008 season. The Warriors (1-1-1) controlled the tempo of the game and, according to assistant coach Kristi Kiely, “had the run of play” throughout.

“The team showed a lot of patience today,” Kiely noted. “We controlled the pace and had possession about 80 percent of the game. It was a good victory.”

The Warriors got on the board first with a goal by sophomore forward Jameisha Washington.

At about the 35-minute mark, Southern Oregon (0-3) evened the score at a goal apiece and took momentum away from the Warriors going into halftime. But Westmont responded after the intermission to reclaim control of the game with a goal from Shanae Coker. Amy Lawson added the third goal, scoring on a jumble in the front of Southern Oregon’s goal.

“In the final three minutes, Natalie Johnston had a couple of good saves to preserve the win for us,” Kiely noted.

The Warriors return to campus to attend the first week of classes before their next outing Sept. 8 at Cal State Los Angeles.

Ron Smith is Westmont‘s sports information director.

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!
