Wildcats Tamed by Warriors

For the second game in a row, Malory Mitchel scored two goals as #2 Westmont Women’s Soccer (3-0) posted a 2-0 win over the visiting Wildcats (1-1) of Baker (Kan.). In three games, the Warriors have outscored their opponents 10-1.

“Mal has had a couple of good games and I am proud of her as a senior captain,” said Westmont head coach Kristi Kiely. “On the second goal she got on the ball, beat a few players (on the dribble) and finished so nicely at the near post.”

Mitchell’s first goal came in the 16th minute after a shot on goal by sophomore Grace Lemley from the right side rebounded off Baker goalkeeper Rachel Theobald. Mitchell, playing on the left, collected the ball and delivered into the net from six yards out.

“It was nice to get the goal relatively early to settle in a little bit,” said Kiely. “We haven’t been starting games great, so that was nice to be able to do.

Mitchell Strikes Twice in Warrior Win

Kaci Mexico, Tiffany Dimaculangan and Carly Richardson celebrate Malory Mitchell's (second from right) second goal of the game.

Senior forward Mallory Mitchell had a pair of goals on Saturday morning at Russ Carr Field to lead #2 Westmont Women’s Soccer (2-0) to a 4-1 win over the visiting Eagles (1-2) of Northwest (Wash.). The Warriors scored three times in a seven minute span during the second half to secure the win.

Mitchell’s first goal came in the 26th minute when she headed in a ball that was crossed from the left corner by senior forward Carly Holly. The ball was initially blocked by Northwest goalkeeper Patty Hughes, but hit the ground and spun backward into the net.

The Eagles responded in the 30th minute with a goal by Acacia Johnson. Johnson dribbled up the center of the field and past Westmont goalkeeper Lauren Dorr, scoring into an empty net.

“We were all unsatisfied with the first half,” noted Westmont head coach Kristi Kiely. “(Northwest) has a quick front player in Johnson. We had the scout on her and had a game plan, but we didn’t stick to it.

“In the second half we made some adjustments and encouraged the team to go forward. We had a lot of success doing so.”

Second Ranked Warriors Prevail over Spartans

The 2014 Westmont Women’s Soccer season kicked off today at Thorrington Field with a 4-0 victory over the Spartans (1-3) of Trinity Western (B.C.). The Warriors learned earlier in the day that they were ranked at number two in the NAIA Preseason Coaches’ Poll.

“I thought Sophie Judd was fantastic in the back and at moments kept us in the game. Tiffany (Dimaculangan) was great in the middle and I thought Kaci (Mexico) was great up top, holding the ball for us.”

Sofia Smati struck first with what Kiely referred to as a ‘fantastic goal’ in the ninth minute of play. The senior forward corralled a loose ball and fired away from 23 yards out to record the first goal of the Warriors’ season.

Westmont went up 2-0 in the 29th minute after sophomore Grace Lemley crossed the ball from the right side in an attempt to connect with senior forward Carly Holly. A Spartan defender attempted to intercept the ball, but her header redirected the ball into the net for an own goal.

Warriors Eyeing a Sandy Finish

2014 Westmont Women's Soccer

“It was more about the metaphor than about the fitness,” reflected Westmont Women’s Soccer head coach Kristi Kiely. She was referring to an early morning run along Santa Barbara’s East Beach during the Warriors’ pre-season training camp.

“We started them off 10 seconds apart,” continued Kiely. “The only instruction they got was to, ‘catch the person in front of you and don’t be caught by the person behind you’ – and that they would know when they were finished. They didn’t know how far they were going or that (assistant coach) Dan (Ribbens) was a mile down the beach.”

“When they reached Dan, I asked them a handful of questions about their experience on the run,” reported Kiely. “They responded about feeling great when they saw Dan, focusing on not being caught and looking behind.

“Then we sent them back up the beach with the same instructions. I again asked them the same questions and loved Christine Adams’ response. ‘The second time around it is better because you know the destination and are more likely to encourage the people around. You aren’t looking behind you but you are looking straight ahead at the goal.’

Westmont Retains All-Sports Award, Places 19th in Learfield Cup

Submitted by: Ron Smith - June 13th, 2014

In a very close result, Westmont Athletics will hold on to the Golden State Athletic Conference All-Sports Award presented by Duke’s Restaurant in Huntington Beach. The Warriors averaged 6.83 points, edging out Concordia by 0.02 points in the final standings.

“The GSAC all-sports award is especially pleasing because it is our second in a row and for me establishes that we are a well-rounded and consistently solid athletic program,” said Westmont athletic director Dave Odell. “Our aim is to field competitive teams in every sport we’ve chosen to compete and this award demonstrates that we are doing this.

“I am especially pleased that with success on the field, we were also able to achieve strong results in the classroom,” noted Odell. “The fall semester GPA average for student-athletes was higher than any previous semester. Achieving within the academic rigors of Westmont, while being a full-time athlete, is quite a growing experience. I am quite proud of the way our student-athletes approach their business on and off the field.”

Four Warriors Named All-Americans

2013 NAIA All-Americans: Lindsey Smith, Alison Hensley, Amanda Diesen, Tiffany Dimaculangan

Four Warriors have been named to the 2013 NAIA Women’s Soccer All-America teams. Senior goalkeeper Lindsey Smith of Pleasanton and senior midfielder Alison Hensley of Huntington Beach were named to the first team. Senior defender Amanda Diesen of Irvine was a second team selection. Junior midfielder Tiffany Dimaculangan of Glendora was honored as a member of the third team.

Smith allowed just 13 goals in 24 games resulting in a 0.56 goals against average – second best in the NAIA this year. She also came up big in both of Westmont’s NAIA Championship games which were decided by a shootout. In the first round against Westminster (Utah), she blocked two of three attempts by the Griffins to advance the Warriors to the second round.

In the semifinals, Smith blocked two of eight penalty kick attempts by #3 Northwood (Fla.) as the Warriors won the shootout 7-6 to give Westmont a berth in the championship game.

“Lindsey has grown into an incredible goalkeeper and I believe one of the best in the nation,” said Westmont head coach Kristi Kiely. “This award represents all of the hard work she’s put in over the past four years. She will certainly go down in Westmont Women’s Soccer as one of the best to come through the program.”

Warriors Fall in Championship Game

Sophie Fuller was named the Select Sport America-NAIA Championship Outstanding Defensive Player

Westmont Women’s Soccer (17-2-5) couldn’t find the offense needed to win the 2013 NAIA National Championship. The Warriors, seeded at number two, fell to #4 Concordia (21-1-1) by a score of 1-0 in the championship game.

“I am really proud of the players to even be in this game,” said Westmont head coach Kristi Kiely. “We walked into the tournament one game at a time and all of a sudden we were in the championship game. It was exciting to be here and a good experience for our players.”

The winning goal came in the 65th minute off the foot of Hannah Scott. Her strike from the top of the box was deflected across the face of the goal and into the top corner of the net.
