Women’s soccer takes home two victories

Thursday afternoon the Seawolves’ soccer team traveled to Azusa to take on Azusa Pacific. The game remained scoreless until the final five minutes of regulation. The game would ultimately end in a 1-0 Seawolf victory, as McKenzie Maher’s shot off of the right post and into the net stood as the lone goal in a strong defensive performance by both sides.  Brigid Lummis was credited with the assist. Only eleven shots were taken the entire game (six for Sonoma and five for Azusa Pacific.)    

In the first half, the Seawolves could only get two shots off, and APU could only fire one shot. Both teams shot four times in the second half. Sonoma’s keeper Allison Hadidian and APU’s keeper Sarah Klinkenberg each had a save on the day. 

SSU’s Lauren Curtin also provided a shot on goal, and Mayra Almazan contributed a shot on goal for Azusa Pacific. 

Saturday, the Seawolves looked to maintain their perfect record against Point Loma. Just as the last game, the game remained scoreless until late in the game. With two minutes remaining in double overtime, Sara Van Wagoner headed a pass from Melissa Lafranchi into the goal and scored a clutch goal to give the Seawolves their second straight 1-0 victory.

Sonoma gave their second straight strong defensive performance, as they held the Sea Lions to only six shots, three of which were on goal. 

Aside from Van Wagoner’s goal, Cecilia Sifuentes and McKenzie Maher also provided a shot on goal, and Lauren Curtin provided two shots on goal. 

Sonoma’s keeper Allison Hadidian had another good game with three saves. 

SSU will be taking Dominican University this Monday in San Rafael. Kick off is at 3 p.m.
