Soccer: Vaqueros Stumble 3-2 at Citrus

The men's coach calls it 'one of the worst performances' he has seen at SBCC.

The bugaboo of the Santa Barbara City College men’s soccer team — inconsistency — jumped up and bit the Vaqueros on Tuesday in a 3-2 WSC loss at Citrus.

“We have aspirations of winning the WSC, but there’s no way we’ll do it with a performance like that,” coach John Sisterson said. “That was one of the worst performances I’ve seen since I came to SBCC. It’s unacceptable.”

SBCC, ranked No. 12 in the state, suffered its first WSC loss and fell to 7-4 overall and 2-1 in conference. Citrus, which had gone winless in its last five games (0-4-1), improved to 4-4-2 and 1-1-1.

Waid Ibrahim scored in the fourth minutes for the Vaqueros on an assist from Mark Knight. The Owls responded with goals in the eighth, 46th and 67th minutes to take a 3-1 lead.

Knight converted a penalty kick in the 70th minute after Sekou Rolland was brought down in the box.

“We were coming off a good win at Oxnard, and the boys thought they could just step on the field (and win),” Sisterson said.

SBCC continues its five-game road trip on Friday at Glendale.

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!
