Seawolves blaze the trail for another successful season

Sonoma State University’s women’s soccer team ended their pre-season with two wins, one tie, and one loss.

In preparation to take another CCAA title, the Seawolves entered this weekend ready to attack and triumph during their tournament in St. George, Utah. The team won both games Thursday and Saturday against Colorado Mesa and Dixie State. 

The girls were in full focus as they played against Colorado Mesa on Thursday. They were determined to receive their first win of the season, squeezing out a 1-0 victory during the second half of the game.

Sophomore Miriam Bloom scored the game winner and her first career goal all in one match. Kristen Spear also contributed with three saves throughout the game.

“Our defensive shape [is] staying compact and cohesive,” said Spear. “This is a key factor to maintain throughout the season so their offensive and defensive strength can help lead to more victories.”

The Seawolves played their second and last game of the weekend against the Dixie State Trailblazers. 

Feeding off the victory against Colorado, the team’s champion mentality is exactly what brought them their second victory, defeating Dixie State 3-1.  Taylor Enzler and Cecilia Sifuentes went to work immediately, scoring two back-to-back goals in the first half of the game. 

There was no mercy for Dixie State as Enzler fired another goal into the back of the net, sealing the fate of the game in favor of the Seawolves. 

The Trailblazers were left trailing behind the Seawolves, successfully launching one last attempt to get on the board in the fifty-sixth minute of the game. 

After two well earned victories, it’s time for the team to ice their muscles and prepare for their upcoming regular season. The team will play Cal Poly Pomona this Friday at home to             kick offthe season.
