Milestones set in shutout victory over Pasadena Lancers

Luis Guzman/ TM Archives

The women’s soccer team (10-1-0, 4-1-0) pushed its win streak to four after defeating Pasadena City College (4-6-2, 2-3-0) 8-0 on Tuesday, Oct. 14.

The Falcons gained an early lead in the fifth minute when forward Ashley Anaya-Webb kicked the ball past the fingers of Pasadena’s goalkeeper, her first of three goals in the game and the 22nd of the season, giving her the state lead for most goals this season.

Forward and midfielder Nayeli Requejo also finished the game with three goals along with three assists, earning the tie for most assists in school history – 20.

The first half ended with Cerritos up 3-0 after Requejo scored off a penalty kick in the 25th minute.

Coach Ruben Gonzalez said, “It was a difficult game at the beginning because we knew [Pasadena was not] going to sit back, but then we just kept playing and our team’s speed just took over.”

That speed pushed the Falcons to score five more goals in the second half, including four in just six minutes.

Centerback Clara Gomez said, “We came off of a good win from Mt. SAC and [Pasadena] is our rival and we wanted to show (it) that we were ready to play. We came out, we took care of business and I think everything went well today.”

Midfielder Cassandra Reyes agreed with her teammate.

“I feel like we played really well and we could have done a little better, but we played really well as a team. We had good passes and good finishing.”

The Falcons will look to extend their win streak on Friday at Los Angeles Harbor College at 4 p.m.

Monica Gallardo, Opinion Editor
Spring 2015 Hey, I'm Monica and I'm the opinion editor at Talon Marks. When I'm not stressing about creating story topics and making sure everyone meets their deadlines, I'm probably hanging out with friends or sleeping or just chilling with dogs. It's my second semester on the paper and hopefully next semester I'll be at a Cal State. Last semester I was the sports copy editor and I'm excited to take on a bigger role and grow with my fellow journalists. In the future, after school is all done with and I'm responsible enough, I plan to go to New Zealand and maybe stay there because even though I've never been there, it's my favorite place. And no, it's not because I love The Lord of the Rings and New Zealand is where the trilogy was filmed. That's just a coincidence.
