SBCC Soccer: Vaquero Women Tie No. 6 Cypress

Both teams struggle to create scoring chances, ending the match at 0-0.

On a day when both teams struggled to create scoring chances, the Santa Barbara City College women’s soccer team earned a 0-0 tie with Cypress on Friday afternoon at La Playa Stadium.

SBCC, ranked No. 2 in Southern Cal, tied for the second straight game and remained unbeaten at 3-0-2. Cypress, ranked No. 6 in the country and No. 3 in SoCal, is 4-0-2. The Vaqueros tied Santa Rosa, the No. 1 team in Northern Cal, on Monday.

“We had a lot of possessions and it was a battle out there,” Vaquero coach John Sisterson said. “We tried to encourage the girls to get the ball on the floor and get in behind the defense and play wide, but we didn’t do that.

“In the last 10 minutes, we got it together, got the ball out wide and started to create some chances. I felt we had the better opportunities.”

The Vaqueros have outscored their opponents 18-3 this year. They’ll play a doubleheader with the men’s team on Tuesday at Fresno City 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!
