Lady Knights edged by LA Valley

Ernesto Lopez

The City College women’s soccer team was defeated 1-0 at home by Los Angeles Valley College on Sept. 10 despite having control of the ball for most of the game.

In true fashion, the Lady Knights controlled the ball the first half and got off six shots, but could not find the net. Freshman goalkeeper Claudia Quiroz held her game and tallied seven saves overall.

During one of their runs to Knights territory on minute 41, the Cubs took full advantage and scored the only goal of the game when Quiroz left the frame unattended in an attempt to gain control of the ball.

The Lady Knights had several scoring opportunities in the second half, but were unable to follow through. This loss puts the soccer team at 0-4 for the season.
