Kyle Cortez, Managing Editor

The BC women’s soccer team (6-2-2) has gone on a three-game winning streak after starting the season 3-2-2.

The Renegades beat Glendale College 3-1. BC scored two goals in the first half and another in the second half, before allowing a goal in the final five minutes of the game.

Arielle Joven scored two goals; both were in the first half. Then, Odalys Espinoza scored a goal on a penalty kick. Espinoza has scored five goals over her last three games. Amelia Lopez didn’t record a point, which snapped her points streak that included recording a point in the first seven games of the season. The Renegades scored three goals on seven shots.

The Renegades then beat West LA College 2-0 in their first home game in three weeks. BC scored both of their goals in the first half.

Sabrina Sanchez scored in the 24th minute and then Alexandria Castro scored seven minutes later in the 31st minute.

The Renegades had 12 shots, but they were only able to score two goals. Jeanette Gutierrez was the goalkeeper for BC in the first half and she made one save. Taylor Serrano played the second half and she made two saves.

“This is kind of the style that we’ve been throughout the last few games. It was good because I felt we were evenly matched, but I thought we had the better of it. We had two slightly different styles, and I felt that we just did a better job of putting our stamp on the game tonight,” said head coach Scott Dameron.

Before their three-game winning streak, the Renegades had gone 1-2-1 in their previous four games, but Dameron still felt like they’ve been playing the way they like to play.

“We’ve played a lot of this kind of soccer. Sometimes you play somebody and they beat you and sometimes you play somebody and you beat them. Tonight we were able to get two [goals] and they got zero. Good for us,” said Dameron.

BC would then beat Cuesta College 3-0 on Sept. 30.

BC has a game at Ventura College on Oct. 7 before returning home to play College of the Canyons on Oct. 11.
