Warriors Stumble against Mustangs

One game does not a season make. That’s good news for #2 Westmont Women’s Soccer (7-2, 2-1 GSAC) who suffered a 5-0 loss to #15 The Master’s (6-2-1, 1-0-1) on Saturday at Thorrington Field.

The Mustangs scored three goals in the opening 15 minutes and kept the Warriors at bay for the rest of the first half. The second half proved no batter for the Warriors who gave up another two goals in the first seven minutes. Natasha Coyle recorded a hat trick for the Mustangs while Katie Farris claimed the other two goals.

With the loss, the Warriors fall into a tie with Biola (8-1, 2-0) for first place in the GSAC. Both teams have earned six points in the standings (three points for a win, one for a time). The Master’s and #7 Concordia (7-2-1, 1-0-1) are tied for second with four points apiece.

Steck’s Hat Trick Does the Trick

Kelsey Steck recorded her second career hat trick in Westmont

Kelsey Steck provided all three Warrior goals as #2 Westmont (7-1, 2-0 GSAC) defeated San Diego Christian (2-3-1, 0-1) in a Golden State Athletic Conference game at Cuyamaca Community College. This is the second time in her career that Steck has recorded a hat trick and it is the 15th hat trick in Warrior history. Steck’s other three-point game was against Arizona Christian on October 19, 2013.

“Kelsey got two pretty quickly and they were two very good goals,” said Westmont head coach Kristi Kiely. “Destinee Adams came into the game and had a presence right away. Destinee elevated and had a flick on that went off the keeper. Kelsey was able to finish in the side netting calm, composed, but with authority.”

Steck’s second goal, which came less than four minutes later, was a header off a corner kick from Mallory Mitchell.

“The last few games we have been getting a lot of (balls crossed into) in the box and not getting on the end,” said Kiely. “We have been working on that a lot and it was great to see Kelsey receive the fruit from her labor.”

Women’s Soccer Begins GSAC with a Win

Three second-half goals provided the margin of victory for #2 Westmont Women’s Soccer (6-1, 1-0) as it opened Golden State Athletic Conference play with a 3-0 shutout of conference newcomer William Jessup.

Westmont, who shares the ‘Warriors’ nickname with today’s opponent, outshot Jessup 24-3, including a 9-2 shots-on-goal advantage. However, Westmont was unable to turn a plethora of opportunities into points in the first half.

“Obviously, we need to continue to work on our finishing,” said Westmont head coach Kristi Kiely. “That was our Achilles’ heel last week and it could have been this week. We are getting lots of very good opportunities that we are not putting away.”

Westmont finally broke through in the 61st minute. Kaci Mexico retrieved a loose ball on the right side, passed it to Tiffany Dimaculangan who in turn sent the ball left to Sophia Smati. Left undefended, Smati squared up and fired off a shot from 25 yards out that snuck underneath the William Jessup keeper.

#1 Cavaliers Edge #2 Warriors

It was an epic battle women’s soccer between the two top-ranked teams in the NAIA at Thorrington Field on Friday afternoon in front of more than 500 excited fans. In the end, top-ranked Concordia of Oregon (6-0-1) defended its number one ranking with a 2-1 win over second-ranked Westmont (5-1) in the NAIA Game of the Week.

“These are the ones that don’t make you feel very good,” said Westmont head coach Kristy Kiely, “the ones where you feel like you executed the game plan well, but you still don’t walk away with a win.”

The Warriors outshot the Cavaliers 16-12 (7-5 on goal) and held a 13-2 corner kick advantage. However, Westmont was unable to capitalize on the abundance of its chances.

“It’s the best start the team had all season,” noted Kiely. “They kept the ball for a long time. But, you have to score goals in this game. We had 13 corners and nothing to show for it. We missed a couple of sitters. Those things came back to haunt us later in the game, along with a couple of mistakes in the back.”

Warriors Defend #2 Ranking with Win over #3 Lindsey Wilson

Westmont's Malory Mitchell

A pair of goals in the first 20 minutes propelled #2 Westmont (5-0) to a 2-0 win over #3 Lindsey Wilson of Kentucky (2-1) in the NAIA Women’s Soccer Game of the Week. The Warriors outshot the Blue Raiders 11-9 but more importantly, notched a 7-2 shots-on-goal advantage.

“There were so many good performances,” said Westmont head coach Kristy Kiely. “I thought Courtney (Stonesifer) and Christine (Adams) brought a lot of pressure down the right side to start the game. I thought our middle with Brooke (Lillywhite), Tiffany (Dimaculangan) and Kaci (Mexico) was fantastic. Tiff has done a lot of important work that doesn’t make it into the stat sheet. I’m really proud of her.

“Kelsie Steck did a great job running up top for us for a lot of minutes. Malory Mitchell has shown a lot of leadership as a senior captain and has been a part of a lot of goals as of late.”

Adams put the ball in the goal in the seventh minute of play, giving the Warriors a 1-0 advantage.

Down 1-0 with less than three minutes to play, Westmont’s Malory Mitchell scored her fifth goal of the season sending the contest with #13 Martin Methodist (2-1) into overtime. Nearly four minutes later, Brooke Lillywhite found the back of the net to give #2 Westmont Women’s Soccer (5-0) a 2-1 win.

The game was played at Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, Kentucky. Tomorrow, the Warriors will take on their third-ranked hosts in what has been designated the NAIA Game of the Week.

Westmont struggled to get its offense going in the first half and found itself fending off five shots by the RedHawks in the first 16 minutes of play. Lauren Dorr recorded five saves in the game to keep the Warriors in the contest.

“I thought (senior defender) Sophie Judd was the player of the game,” said Westmont head coach Kristi Kiley. “Nothing got past her tonight.”

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.”
