San Diego City College Women’s Soccer ended a ten game losing streak when they defeated Imperial Valley College 2-0 on Friday.

The win was a long time in the making for the team.

“We felt it coming every single week. We keep coming out, putting in a lot of work and really improving every single game,” Knights coach Tony Arnesen said after the match. “There were already a few games that we felt that we were definitely the better team and probably should have gotten some results.” 

The shutout began when forward Georgina Godoy scored a header on a corner kick in the 18th minute.

The Knights scored again 14 minutes into the second half when forward Shantal Benitez Rome snuck the ball past IVC’s keeper.    

Knight’s midfielder Marisol Guererro assisted on both goals.

It was an easy outing for Knights goalkeeper Andrea Kumano as IVC managed only to put only one shot on goal during the game. 

City College was shorthanded and played with only one sub during the match.

“It’s definitely an awesome feeling knowing that all their work has paid off, especially with the numbers we had,” Arnesen said. 

The Knights next face Cuyamaca College at home Tuesday at 3 p.m.

Midfielder Erwin Hampton then scored to put the Knights in front.

“Everyone has been trying to get me that goal and it just hadn’t come,” Hampton said. “I feel like this is the start of something now.”

Jordy Robelledo put the match out of reach in the 84th minute when he scored off an Ivan Gonzalez corner kick.

The Knights next traveled to MiraCosta College Friday where they played the Spartans to a scoreless draw. 

City College will return for a double header at home Tuesday when will play Cuyamaca followed by Palomar.

City faced hardship immediately during the match, having to come from behind to win the first set before being beaten by the Spartans handedly during the second.

The contest went five sets and ended with an eruption from the Knight’s bench as they secured the victory.

The Knights are behind only Mesa and Grossmont College in the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference, both of whom are ranked.

City College will look to repeat the feat when they take on Grossmont on the road Wednesday at 6 p.m.
