In the highly competitive Golden State Athletic Conference race, #11 Westmont Women’s Soccer (11-3. 6-2 GSAC) started the day in a tie for fourth place and ended the day in a three-way tie for first. The feat was accomplished in part due to Westmont’s 1-0 win over #10 Vanguard (13-2-1, 6-2) in Costa Mesa.
Senior Kelsey Steck scored the game’s only goal in the 13th minute.
“It was a great individual effort by Kelsey,” said Westmont head coach Kristi Kiely. “She drove at a couple of defenders, beat them and got a very nice shot up. The keeper saved it but Kelsey was there for the follow-up and she put it nicely in the corner of the net.”
Both teams got off 12 shots during the contest. Half of the Warriors shots were on goal compared to just two for the Lions.
