Victor Chavez’s Goal Difference in SBCC’s 1-0 Victory Over Oxnard

Victor Chavez drove a penalty kick into the bottom left corner in the 70th minute on Tuesday and SBCC’s defense did the rest in a 1-0 men’s soccer victory at Oxnard.

The Vaqueros, ranked sixth in the state, remained undefeated at 12-0-4 and 6-0-1 in the WSC North. They lead the conference and got a boost when Hancock tied Santa Monica 1-1. The Vaqueros have 19 points and Santa Monica (4-0-3) is second with 15 points.

SBCC is 9-0-1 in its last 10 games and 3-0-1 in its last four with three shutouts. Oxnard fell to 10-7-1 and 3-4.

Goalie Shane Pitcock, a first-team All-WSC choice last year, made five saves for his eighth shutout this year and 14th of his career.

Chavez got his first penalty kick of the year after the Condors were called for a hand ball in the box. Chavez is third in the WSC North in scoring with 11 goals and 25 points.

“Jessie Jimenez hit the bar in the first half and we had a number of good scoring opportunities,” said coach John Sisterson. “It was a hard-fought game. Mike (Abiodun Akintioye, a sophomore from Sweden) was the man of the match. He won every ball he had to win in the midfield, he distributed the ball smartly and he worked hard for 90 minutes.”

The Vaqueros have three games left in the regular season.. They host L.A. Mission on Friday at 1 p.m.

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!
