Trojans face Colts

On October 6, the Skyline College women’s soccer team faced off against Cañada College. Skyline overcame Cañada with a score of 1-0. Melissa Escamillia, a midfielder, scored an unassisted goal at the 29:00 minute mark, but as far as the Colts go, they were shut down by Skyline’s defense and weren’t able to score. Goalie Natalie Saucedo was able to save 7 on goal shots in the first half. In the second half, Elizabeth Blancas saved 2 goals, which was crucial for Skyline. Blancas and Saucedo were able to keep it scoreless for 90 minutes, but the defense was also a big help to Skyline’s win.

This Friday (Oct. 9) will be Skyline’s next game against Ohlone College and it will start at 2:00 p.m. at home. If Skyline keeps shutting down their opponents offense and putting pressure offensively they’ll be able to have successful results. Their record for home games is 4 wins, 1 tie, and 1 loss, compared to their away record of 1 win, 0 ties, and 2 losses. Since Skyline has a higher win rate at home, this should give them the momentum to play harder each game, but hopefully not only during home games. If they keep playing each game like they have at home then Skyline’s women soccer team will see their win’s record increase.
