SBCC Soccer: Belsheim’s Goal Gives Vaqueros 1-1 Tie

SBCC holds on despite falling behind early and playing with only 10 players for the last 30 minutes.

After falling behind early, the Santa Barbara City College women’s soccer team kept its composure and managed to tie Santa Rosa 1-1 on Monday, despite having only 10 players for the last 30 minutes.

Freshman Courtney Belsheim tied the game in the 78th minute on a flick-on pass from Shannon Lynott. The goal came 18 minutes after midfielder Ginelle Bongiorno was sent off with her second yellow card.

The Bear Cubs (4-1-1) scored in the ninth minute and led 1-0 at the half despite a handful of scoring chances by the Vaqueros (3-0-1).

“We were flat-footed when they scored, and that was a sloppy goal,” SBCC coach John Sisterson. “We really took it to them the rest of the half and in the second half. We created a lot of chances, but our legs got a little tired in the last 10 minutes. The kids hung on well.”

SBCC returns home Friday for a 2 p.m. game against Cypress.

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!
