SBCC Soccer: Women’s Team Stays Unbeaten With 2-0 Win

Brieanna Wright and Laura Spivack lead the Vaqueros over Mt. San Antonio.

Brieanna Wright and Laura Spivack scored first-half goals Friday as the Santa Barbara City College women’s soccer team remained unbeaten with a 2-0 victory over Mt. San Antonio.

Wright found the net in the 17th minute at La Playa Stadium and took over the team lead with her fifth goal. In the 28th minute, Spivack outdueled a defender at the top of the box and beat the keeper.

“The girls battled well,” Vaquero coach John Sisterson said. “We knew it would be a tough physical game. The referee, I felt, let the play go. He allowed a little more than we’re used to. That made it a little bit scrappy.”

Goalie Meigan Maiwald made a couple of solid saves in the 21st and 23rd minutes for the third-ranked Vaqueros (4-0-3), who have recorded four shutouts and outscored their opponents 21-4. Mt. SAC fell to 2-2-2.

“Casey Rubin was outstanding in midfield,” Sisterson said. “She’s probably the smallest player on the team but she battles and battles. And Chelsea Nielsen has played outstanding on defense. She’s a leader and she reads the game very well.”

SBCC opens a three-game road trip Tuesday night at Canyons.

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!
