Women’s Soccer: Vaqueros Blank Taft for Third Straight Shutout

Wright and Lynott lead the way in the 2-0 SBCC win.

Brieanna Wright scored in the 39th minute Friday afternoon and the Santa Barbara City College women’s soccer team went on to shut out Taft 2-0. The nonconference victory improved the 10th-ranked Vaqueros’ record to 11-1-5.

“I kicked the ball at the same time as another girl and it went over her head,” said Wright, SBCC’s scoring leader with eight goals and 22 points. “Then I chipped it over the goalie.”

Shannon Lynott added an insurance goal in the 50th minute when her shot ricocheted off a Taft defender into the Cougar net.

“I thought we were the better team,” SBCC coach John Sisterson said. “But we showed a lack of composure around the box.”

It was the third straight shutout and 11th of the season for goalie Meghan Maiwald.

SBCC’s Summer Deaton got into a shoving match with Maria Arroyo in the 65th minute and received a red card. She’ll have to sit out Tuesday’s game at Oxnard.

The Vaqueros travel to Cuesta on Nov. 7 before taking on first-place Ventura in the final regular-season home appearance at 1 p.m. Nov. 11.

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!
