Women’s soccer defeats Glendale

Citrus College defeated Glendale’s woman’s soccer team 2-0 on Friday afternoon.

“I liked the outcome. It was a difficult match. They put a lot of plays behind the ball earlier in the game and it took us an incredible amount of time to score,” said Citrus assistant coach Brian Dorman.

Despite their large amount of attempted shots, there was a high amount of fouls throughout the game.

There was a total of 9 fouls on Citrus and 6 on Glendale.

Although they had a lot of fouls, the game was played fair and both teams agreed.

“Citrus is a better team. They beat us. They played fair. They did what they had to do and we did what we had to do,” said Mena.

Overall, Citrus really defended themselves to get the win.

“We need to keep up the wins and try to get to playoffs,” said Silva.
