Soccer: Lady Vaqueros Blank No. 4 Moorpark 3-0 in WSC Opener

SBCC snaps a six-game winning streak of the defending conference champions.

Laura Spivack got the Santa Barbara City College women’s soccer team going with a goal in the third minute and the Vaqueros added two more goals on Tuesday to blank defending WSC North champion Moorpark 3-0 in their WSC women’s soccer opener.

Kila MacNaughton booted the ball into the top right corner in the final minute of the first half, and Chelsea Nielson tallied the third goal on a free kick from 30 yards in the 77th minute.

SBCC, ranked ninth in the state, snapped the six-game winning streak of No. 4 Moorpark and remained unbeaten (6-0-4, 1-0-0). The Raiders fell to 8-2-1, 1-1-0.

“We’re delighted to go there and beat the reigning conference champions,” Vaquero coach John Sisterson said. “We felt it was a comfortable win, even though we didn’t play our best.”

It was the fourth straight shutout and seventh on the year for goalie Meigan Maiwald and the Vaquero defense.

“Moorpark never really challenged us around our box,” Sisterson said. “Meigan made three easy saves.”

SBCC returns to action at 7:30 p.m. Friday with a home game against West Los Angeles.

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!
