SBCC Women Romp in Regional Playoff Opener

 Josefine Von Der Burg and Kathryn Sullivan scored two goals each on Thursday night, leading SBCC to a 4-0 women’s soccer shutout of Citrus in a Southern Cal Regional game at La Playa Stadium.

Katherine Sheehy and Chloe Montano both had two assists for the 14th-seeded Vaqueros (13-6-1), who led 2-0 at the half. No. 19 Citrus ends its year with an 11-9-1 record.

It was the 150th win for SBCC coach John Sisterson. He’s 150-56-44 in 12 seasons as the women’s head coach. The Vaqueros completed an 8-1 home campaign. They’ve won four of their last five, including three by shutout.

Von Der Burg tallied two goals for the third straight game. The sophomore from Sweden scored in the 21st minute when Sheehy fired a short pass to her left and it ricocheted off Von Der Burg and a defender into the net.

Sullivan entered the game at 33:51 and scored exactly one minute later. She took a back-flick header from Montano, raced up the right side and beat the keeper from nine yards out.

 “I knew what I had to do when I got the ball,” said Sullivan. “I ran up the side, took on a couple of defenders and hoisted it in.”

The Vaqueros outshot the Owls 8-1 in the first half and 15-5 for the game. SBCC had 10 shots on-goal and seven corner kicks.

In the 59th minute, Sullivan struck again. Sheehy came in from the left and drove the ball at the keeper.

Amber Henry deflected it up in the air and it landed behind her, right at the feet of Sullivan, who punched it in from a yard away.

“It feels awesome to get a playoff win, this is a great start,” Sullivan added.

Von Der Burg got her team-leading 18th goal at 73:04, taking a pass from Montano and beating a defender and then the goalie to the lower right corner.

Alejandra Camarillo made three saves to record her seventh shutout.

SBCC travels to No. 3 Canyons for a first-round Regional game on Saturday at 7 p.m. The Vaqueros beat the Cougars 2-1 on Sept. 27 at The Master's College.

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!
