Westmont Women Fall to Biola in GSAC Semifinals

In the semifinal round of the Golden State Athletic Conference Women’s Soccer Tournament, 10th-ranked Westmont fell to No. 8 Biola  by a score of 1-0.

The game winning goal came in the 41st minute when Biola goalkeeper Christina Rodriguez punted the ball over the Westmont back line and Sarah Jeffries chased it down deep into the 18-yard box and converted it into a goal with a shot into right side netting.

“Within the first half we were able to implement what we needed to tactically to dominate,” explained head coach Cappuccilli. “All in all we had a significant amount of opportunities within the first half to potentially put us in a position to get a goal, however it didn’t come off how we would have hoped and they connected on one of their opportunities.”

In the first half the Warriors (15-3-2) had 14 shots and Biola (15-0-2) had five. Overall, the Warriors outshot Biola 26-12.

“I think moving into the second half we found that we were going to have to go and get the goal and so we lost a bit of our possession,” noted Cappuccilli. “Ultimately one just didn’t come off for us. I think losing a match 1-0 in a setting where we feel like we could have come away successful, is challenging.”

The Warriors will now wait until this coming Monday morning to find out if they will receive an at-large bid into the NAIA National Tournament.

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!
