It took a converted penalty kick from Brooke Lillywhite in the 67th minute, to clinch third ranked Westmont Women’s Soccer (8-0-1, 1-0-0 GSAC) its first Golden State Athletic Conference win of the season. The Warriors defeated the Hope International Royals (3-2-1, 0-1-0 GSAC) by a score of 2-1.
Within the first twenty minutes of play the undefeated Warriors had all of the offensive action – with three shots and a corner kick. However, in the 21st minute the Royals capitalized on their first chance on goal after they drew a foul and earned a free kick from thirty-four yards out. Leigha Williams took the free kick and found the head of Jazzmyn Esquivel to give the Royals a 1-0 lead.
