After coming off an impressive 5-0 win over West Los Angeles College, Bakersfield College had trouble against Pierce College on Sept. 28.  BC found themselves trailing 3-0 early in the first half and couldn’t recover.

Pierce College extended their win streak to four games after beating BC.

“They’re a good team,” BC coach Scott Dameron said when asked how the game got out of reach so early.  “We made a couple mistakes early, and got stuck chasing the game.”

Pierce out ran BC throughout the entire first half. They found themselves scoring two uncontested goals and were able to capitalize on a third goal later in the half.BC was without starting goalkeeper Erin Griepsma, who was out with a concussion. Dameron said she should be back any day. Dameron informed his team after its loss to Pierce College that they would be meeting Pierce again.  So he encouraged them to be ready and know what to expect next time.

He told his team at halftime to not get stuck watching the ball.

“We still didn’t get all of it fixed, but they did what we needed them to do, and no goals were scored in the second half,” he said.

BC’s loss put them at 5-3 for the season and is 1-1 in conference play.

Dameron thought that the difference between beating West L.A. College and the game against Pierce College was that Pierce was a better team.

BC’s next game is Oct. 2, and they will be playing host to College of the Canyons.
