Quick Hat Trick by Josefine Von Der Burg Powers SBCC Women

After being frustrated by near-misses for 58 minutes on Friday afternoon, SBCC erupted for five goals in a 19-minute span to beat West Hills-Lemoore 5-0 in a women’s soccer match at La Playa Stadium.

Josefine Von Der Burg, a sophomore forward from Sweden, came off the bench to register her first collegiate hat trick and she did it in just 17 minutes.

The Vaqueros (4-2) outshot the Eagles (0-5) by a 17-0 count with 12 shots on-goal in the first half but the teams were tied 0-0 at intermission.

Isabelle Wuethrich broke the ice in the 59th minute, taking a deflected corner kick from Chloe Montano and scoring from close range. Less than two minutes later, Von Der Burg pounded one in from the top of the box on an assist from Katherine Sheehy.

In the 68th minute, Von Der Burg and Sheehy combined on another score to make it 3-0. Sheehy, who had a goal and three assists, got into the scoring column at the 76:24 mark by converting a pass from Montano.

Twenty-six seconds later, Sheehy made a clever back-heel pass to Von Der Burg, who booted it in from 14 yards for the hat trick.

SBCC outshot the visitors 35-0 with 21 shots on goal.

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!
