Women's soccer continues to rack up wins

Starting the season with eight record wins and only two losses that came against Pierce College and Santa Barbara, the Lady Corsairs surprised no one by adding another tally to the win column last Friday.

The Lady Corsairs dominated the field in their victory against Glendale College, routing the home team Vaqueros 4-0.

Small groups of Santa Monica College students, Glendale College supporters, and screaming parents of both teams were among the fans present to witness the shutout victory. Regardless, loud cheers rang out after SMC's first goal made by sophomore Brianna Edwards, who followed the act with yet another goal later on in the quarter.

"I was really happy when I scored the two goals. I had some of my family there supporting me so I felt really good knowing I scored those goals and they were there to see it," said Edwards. "I think after the first goal I scored we knew were in a good position, but after the second one I think everyone knew that we had won the game," she said.

The Lady Corsairs returned again in the second half to score two more goals against their discouraged opponent. Sophomore sensation Mercy Tejada ended up finishing the game with a pair of goals herself after skillfully sifting through the Vaquero defense.

"No goals are easy to me; it takes a lot of effort for a player to score. Thanks to my teammates and our good communication I was able to execute well enough," said Tejada. "We always have the mentality of winning, but we never underestimate the opposing team. We always come out strong as a team," she said.

The Lady Corsair soccer squad has opened the eyes of many this fall, as they have distinguished themselves as a top team in the Conference.

They will fill the seats yet again this Friday at College of the Canyons at 2:00pm as they look to keep the ball rolling.
