Women's Soccer Can't Hold Lead Fall in Close One
The MSJC women's soccer team led 1-0 at halftime, but couldn't hold on to the lead as they fell in a non-conference match at home on Friday 2-1 to Citrus College.
The Lady Eagles jumped out to an early lead in a match played on the Menifee Campus as Ariana Serrato scored a goal just eleven minutes into the first half. Heather Furuya was credited with the assist. MSJC would hold onto the lead for the rest of the first half with some solid team defense. The Owls were able to tie the score at 1-1 in the 50th minute and then punched in the winning goal in the 60th minute as the Lady Eagles couldn't get a tying goal in the second half.
Elizabeth Barackman finished the day in goal with 3 saves for MSJC. Serrato's goal was the Lady Eagles first in their two matches so far this season. MSJC lost by one goal for the second straight match and fell to 0-2 on the year. The Lady Eagles will be right back in action on Tuesday when they host El Camino in a 3:15 match on the Menifee Campus.
