YC Women’s Soccer Drops to Scottsdale Community College

Women’s Soccer Drops High-Scoring Affair to Scottsdale

Facing the No. 13-ranked Scottsdale Community College Fighting Artichokes at Mountain Valley Park on Saturday night, the Yavapai College women’s soccer team let a late lead slip away, eventually falling 6-3 and moving to 1-4 on the season.

YC struck first in the 11th minute of the game on freshman forward Julie Reyes’ first goal of the season. Reyes collected a pass from sophomore forward Emma Alvarez (who took home the assist on the play), touched the ball past a defender and sent it past the diving SCC goalkeeper to the right side of the net for a 1-0 lead. 

With just under 20 minutes to go, freshman goalkeeper Morgan Trail made two incredible saves in which she full-extension dove to her left to preserve the 1-0 lead at the time. 

At halftime, the teams went into the break tied 1-1. 

Just five minutes into the second half, Alvarez tallied her team-leading fourth goal of the season to give the Roughriders a one-goal lead. During the play, Alvarez blocked a clearing attempt, pounced on the loose ball and put it in the back of the Scottsdale net. 

Later in the half with just under 33 minutes left to go in the match, freshman midfielder Miranda Pena gave YC a 3-1 lead with her first goal of the season. Alvarez took home the assist on the play with a cross pass that hit off a Scottsdale defender and found its way to the foot of Pena who tapped it into the back of the net. 

Alvarez’s second assist of the night brought her point total to four on the night and 10 on the young season. 

Unfortunately for the Roughriders, they saw their 3-1 lead fade away rather quickly as the Fighting Artichokes were able to rattle off five unanswered goals to take home the 6-3 victory. 

Up Next

The Roughriders are back in action on September 10 at 6 p.m. in Douglas, Arizona, where they will take on the No. 17-ranked Cochise College Apaches.
