Another women’s soccer season is in the books for head coach Scott Dameron and company.

The girls ended an up and down season on a five game losing streak after starting 5-1-1 early on.

However, conference play was a whole different story for the Renegades as they went 3-9-2 in a tough Western State Conference – South division.

“We started off good, but we had some injuries (concussions) and just didn’t know what to expect at times,” freshman forward Victoria Pyle said.

Bakersfield College went on to drop their final four games getting outscored 18-2 over that span with two games played at home.

College of the Canyons once again lit it up offensively as they beat BC 7-1 in Santa Clarita on Nov. 4.

The Renegades fought hard the following game here at home vs. Citrus, but the Owls outlasted BC in the second half to go on to win, 2-1.

In the last home game for Bakersfield, Santa Monica’s Jayma Martin had it going, scoring two-of-three goals in a 3-1 victory over the Renegades.

The season finally concluded where it started – on the road on Nov. 14.

Pyle gave BC an early 1-0 lead in the 10th minute, but that was the last goal of the season for Bakersfield.

LA Valley scored five straight goals throughout the game, ending the Renegades rollercoaster season with a 7-10-3 overall record and 3-9-2 in conference.
