Game Recap: Women's Soccer Downs Raritan Valley

The Montgomery County Community College Mustangs women's soccer team hosted the Golden Lions of Raritan Valley Community College Thursday. 

The Mustangs got an early jump on the Golden Lions, with a quick goal from freshman Mayra Loaiza just three minutes into play. The goal was knocked in off a centering pass from freshman Heather Spotts.

In the subsequent game action, the Mustangs continued to dominate, playing the ball with quick foot to foot passes and strong field positioning. At 17:00, the Mustangs earned a corner kick. Sophomore captain Taylor Sejda took the kick and landed a goal with a bender straight over the goal keeper's head. 

Three minutes later the Mustangs struck again as Loaiza exploded on a break away run to score goal number three for her team. Up 3-0, the Mustangs continued to put pressure on the Golden Lions, sending their opponent into half time at a three goal deficit.

In the second half, the Golden Lions were able to adjust to the Mustangs' style. Caught off guard, the Mustangs allowed a goal three minutes into play. Quickly, the Mustangs regrouped and both teams beefed up their defense, not allowing any more goals for the remainder of play. 

The game ended in a 3-1 victory for the Mustangs, their first win of the season. Next the Mustangs will travel to Union County College on Saturday Sept. 21 to face off with the Owls.
