Westmont Loses to Biola in Overtime

Biola scored a golden goal three minutes into the first overtime period and defeated fourth-ranked Westmont, 1-0, in a GSAC women's soccer match on Wednesday.

The result dropped the Warriors to 9-2-1 and 2-2 in conference play; 12th-ranked Biola is 10-0-1 and 4-0-1.

The game winner came off of a long throw-in. A Biola player launched the ball towards the front post of the goal and a Westmont defender attempting to head the ball out of the box had the ball hit off the back of her head and  into the goal.

“I think aside from not scoring the goal to be able to come away with the win, our performance is probably the best that I have seen from our side, which obviously adds a bit of frustration,” explained Westmont coach Chantel Cappuccilli. “At the same time, the future continues to look bright for the group and what we are capable of. At the end of the day, soccer is a funny game. If you don’t put away your chances and they create something off of a set piece that seems flukish this result will happen. Overall, there are a lot of bright spots to look at but obviously a loss stings.”

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!
