Women’s Soccer, Volleyball win again
Men’s Soccer loses at Santa Rosa
The Falcons traveled to Modesto on Friday afternoon and came home with a 1-0 victory over the Pirates, earning their third consecutive win. Sophomore Allie Millerscored the only goal of the match midway through the first half after she took a pass from fellow sophomore Karina Torres for the 1-0 lead. The shutout was the seventh of the season for Falcon goalkeeper Aubrey Hall, while the Falcons have not allowed a goal in the last four matches. They will attempt to keep that streak alive when they host Sierra College on Tuesday night at Falcon Stadium. When the two teams met a month ago at Sierra College, the Wolverines prevailed 1-0. Tuesday’s match will be the last regular season home match of the season for the Falcons and Recognition Night for the Falcon sophomores.
The Falcons continued their recent run of success with another exciting five-set victory over a ranked opponent as they defeated Delta College on Friday night in Stockton. After easily winning the first set 25 -13, the Falcons dropped the next two sets by identical 22-25 scores. But the Falcons responded with a 25-19 win in the fourth set and came home with a victory after winning the final set 15-11. Kylie Haverson’s 14 kills led the Falcons, while Isabel Mason provided 18 assists. The win was FLC’s second in a row against a ranked opponent – Delta entered the match ranked number 7 in NorCal – and fourth in a row overall. The Falcons improved to 8-5 in Big 8 play (17-7 overall) and moved into fourth place with just three matches remaining. They will play at Cosumnes River (0-13, 5-18 overall) on Wednesday night at 6:30 pmbefore Friday’s showdown against third-place American River in Falcon Gymnasium.
Having lost to Santa Rosa just 10 days prior, a chance for redemption awaited the Falcons as they faced the Bear Cubs on Friday afternoon in Santa Rosa. The Bear Cubs would have none of it though, as they scored just six minutes into the match and added two more first-half goals to win, 3-0. The loss was the Falcons’ sixth in a row and dropped them to fourth place in the Big 8 with a 3-5 record (6-8-4 overall). With just two matches remaining, the Falcons will face Modesto (5th place, 2-4-2) on Tuesday afternoon in Modesto and Delta (6th place, 0-5-3) on Friday afternoon at Falcon Stadium at 4:30.
