Bulls-eye set on defending champions

Taking the conference by storm with a 4-0 away win against Mt. San Antonio College, the Cerritos College women’s soccer team remains unvanquished with a 19-0-1 record, and it looks forward to the Southern California Regional Playoffs on Saturday.

The defending national and state champions seek success in the playoffs Saturday, and desires to capture its fourth state title in the past six years.

The one, sole tie the women’s team has sustained was against the very team it defeated last Friday, Mt. San Antonio College.

Tieing up at 2-2 last time around in an uncharacteristic performance, the women’s soccer team executed well.

Sophomore defensive midfielder Lyanna Farran wants the new players coming in to give it all they have on the field.

“They have to go out hard every game and play like it’s their last.”

The target has been painted on the back of the Falcons, as the team has the defending title.

“Other teams got stronger this year,” sophomore midfielder Claudia Lopez said. “We got stronger, too, but that doesn’t mean that they are going to take it easy on us.”

Seeding is currently being determined, but the women’s team’s record gives it an edge over last year.

Head coach Ruben Gonzalez has “an experienced team” at his disposal ready to defend the title.

“I have 10 sophomores, and eight of those 10 sophomores played a big part last year when we won the state, and national championships. They know what it takes to get it done, and the freshman have gone under their wings.”

About the Contributor
Sebastian Echeverry
Sebastian Echeverry, Editor in Chief
Hello all, my name is Sebastian Echeverry and I am the Editor-in-Chief for the fall 2015 semester. I have been working for the newspaper for four semesters now and slowly climbed the ranks from staff writer, to assistant sports editor, to sports editor, news/managing editor and finally the big cheese. My interest in journalism began when the twin towers fell on September 11 and the U.S. invaded Iraq. Global news coverage of airstrikes in Baghdad plagued the media and my father who served in the Colombian military would sit with me and explain what was going on to me. I was only eight years old at the time, so putting politics aside, I was only interested in how reporters on the front lines were seeing history unfold in front of them. Since then, I enjoyed reading and writing especially about global news. My first taste of research was for a high school paper about the militias still active in the U.S. I remember sipping some brew outside on the Coffee Bean's patio and being swallowed up by data, and liking it. I Currently have a part time job at Calvin Klein, my favorite sport is soccer and I love, Barcelona, Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund. I also enjoy watching hockey and my favorite team there is the Detroit Red Wings, yeah weird I know. I'm an easy person to approach and talk to and if you have story ideas let's get cracking on them! my email is: [email protected] My Twitter is: C_bass581141 My Instagram is: onlyc_bass5 and for giggles my snapchat is: onlyc_bass5
