Mekaylla White poured in three goals in a 21-minute span of the first half for a natural hat trick that propelled SBCC to a 5-0 shutout of Moorpark on Friday in the women’s soccer regular-season finale at La Playa Stadium.
It was her second hat trick in four days and her fourth in the last eight games. She scored in the 23rd minute on a rebound after a defender blocked her shot, in the 40th minute on a nice over-the-top assist from Jessica Salas and at 42:45 after a cross-field pass by Monica Pizano and an assist from Sean O’Brien.
White has seven goals in her last three games, raising her season total to 18. She leads the WSC North in goals and is 13th in the state.
The Vaqueros, who had already clinched their third straight WSC North title, improved to 12-6-3 overall and 9-1-2 in conference. Moorpark is 9-5-6 and 4-4-4.
SBCC has won four straight, outscoring those opponents 15-1, and is 8-0-2 in its last 10 games.
Goalie Elizabeth Estrada and the defense posted their second straight shutout and third in four games.
“It feels really good, it motivates me to keep on scoring,” said White of her fourth hat trick. “It gives me more faith that we can really do this, moving forward. We’re so excited to win the league and go to the playoffs. Hopefully, we can win it all.”
The Vaqueros outshot the Raiders 13-0 in the first half and led 3-0 at intermission. They finished with a 22-4 advantage in shots, including 14-1 in shots on goal.
