Soccer: Lady Vaqueros Stay Unbeaten With 3-1 Win

No. 6 SBCC overcomes a windstorm to stir up trouble for Oxnard.

Laura Spivack scored in the first minute of play on Friday and the Santa Barbara City College women’s soccer team survived a windstorm at La Playa Stadium to defeat Oxnard 3-1 in a WSC North match.

The Vaqueros, ranked No. 6 in the state, are 8-0-4 overall and 3-0 in the WSC. No. 7 Ventura (9-1-3), which plays host to SBCC on Oct. 17, is also 3-0 in conference.

“The conditions were difficult for both teams in the first half,” SBCC coach John Sisterson said. “We played much better in the second half when we started to move the ball really well.”

The Vaqueros went up 2-0 in the 63rd minute on an “own goal” by Oxnard. Shannon Lynott made it 3-0 in the 73rd minute on an assist from Kila MacNaughton.

SBCC goalie Meghan Maiwald was 45 seconds away from her sixth straight shutout when June Gullien got behind the Vaquero defense and beat the Vaquero keeper.

It was the third straight win for Santa Barbara, which is 5-0-1 in its last six outings and also 5-0-1 at home this season.

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!
