Halloween didn’t prevent Cerritos College women’s soccer team from driving a 9-0 win at home over ECC Compton thanks to midfielder Nayeli Requejo scoring four goals.

Requejo’s four goals takes her tally to 27 goals, making her the second highest goalscorer of the team just behind forward Ashley Anaya-Webb’s 30 goals.

The game started with Requejo breaking the deadlock in the 13th minute with midfielder Jill Messersmith assisting her.

Cerritos would score three minutes later with Jill taking part of the goal, when her corner kick headed by defender Kimberly Olivera.

For the rest of the first half despite being having total control of the ball possession Cerritos were unable to score as the rhythm of the game was slow and at times predictable.

Coach Ruben Gonzalez told his team during halftime that for the second half to pick up the pace and be more fluid with the ball.

Second half started right it where it picked up with Cerritos in control of the game but playing with more energy as by the 60th minute defender Kassie Olivas and midfielder Celina Montano scored to make 4-0.

Within a span of eight minutes, Requejo would score three goals as she was brought down in the box for a penalty kick to be called, sending it to the right side of keeper to make it 5-0 in the 76th minute.

Four minutes later Requejo would score and then would score another penalty kick extending the lead making it 9 for 9 from the spot this year.

Midfielders Cassie Reyes and Jazmin Aguas would seal the deal with the final score 9-0 over ECC Compton.

The next game for the Falcons will be Nov. 4 against visiting team Mt. SAC at 3 pm.
