September 30th, 2007

Freshman goalkeeper Roxanne Love posted six saves as Westmont Women’s Soccer recorded a 3-0 shutout of Hope International (7-3-1, 1-2) on Saturday in Fullerton. With the win, Westmont improves to 2-1 in the Golden State Athletic Conference and 5-3 overall.

“Hope came out at us hard and fast,” acknowledged Westmont head coach Rebecca Mouw. “They had a couple of chances and Roxanne made a good save on one of them. Our backs did a good job of recovering, but Hope definitely got in on us a couple of times. I wasn’t pleased with how we started the game but once we got settled in and started finding our rhythm we were better.”

Mustangs Gallop to 3-1 Victory

September 25th, 2007

Westmont men’s soccer suffered a set back on Tuesday afternoon at Russ Carr Field, losing by a score of 3-1 to The Master’s (6-0-3, 2-0 GSAC). As a result, the #16 Warriors fall to 5-2 overall and 1-1 in Golden State Athletic Conference play. Syian Wignal, a 6′ 4″ senior forward from Kingston, Jamaica, proved to be a formidable opponent for the Warriors.

“There are three things that stick out in my mind,” said Westmont head coach Dave Wolf. “First, we did not cope with their big man. He draws the penalty, he scores the second (goal) and he creates the third. He was a mismatch for us. Second, to go down a goal against that team is hard. They are big and strong, they’re hard to break down. Third, in order to be able to break them down, you have to pass the ball better than we did today.”

“We started five freshmen and brought two off the bench,” said head coach Dave Wolf “We went with a younger group today and they came through with three points (one goal, one assist) on the road against a pretty feisty Vanguard team.”

Women’s Soccer Stung by Vanguard in Overtime

September 24th, 2007

It wasn’t the start that Westmont Women’s Soccer (3-4, 0-1) envisioned for the start of Golden State Athletic Conference play. After battling #16 Vanguard (6-1-1, 1-0) to a 0-0 tie in regulation, the Warriors suffered a 1-0 loss three minutes into overtime on Saturday in Costa Mesa.

“I thought we played well,” said head coach Rebecca Mouw. “We did a good job of possessing the ball, winning balls and getting in toward the goal. We played with a lot of intensity. I thought our central midfield did a good job controlling possession.”

Volleyball Falls Short in Battle with #9 Azusa Pacific

September 22nd, 2007

Freshman outside hitter Alison Sharp tallied 17 kills and a .213 attack percentage, but Westmont Volleyball couldn’t over come the ninth ranked team in the NAIA, falling to Azusa Pacific (10-4, 3-3 GSAC) in four games (30-20, 27-30, 30-24, 30-21). Sharp started the game due to an injury to Stephanie Dunn who was out of commission for today’s game but hopes to return for the Warrior’s next match. Laura Trudelle moved from the left side to take Dunn’s place on the right and Sharp moved into Trudelle’s spot on the left.

“I thought we played very well overall,” said head coach Jim Smoot, “but once again we were facing a top-ten team in the GSAC. I think we are improving and getting better. I’m proud of how the team is staying positive and not getting down on themselves even though we have had a rough streak. If we can maintain that attitude and work on our consistency, we can show great improvement. Maybe in the second half we can do some damage.”
