It took two goals off the foot of junior Brooke Lillywhite for the #9 Warriors (8-2-1, 4-0-1) to triumph in today’s neck-and-neck game against the Mustangs of #23 The Master’s college (5-6-1, 2-2). The final result of the game was 2-1.

The Mustangs quickly made their strong physical presence known when they scored the first goal of the game in just the fifth minute of the match.

The goal began when Vanessa Lourenco intercepted a pass around midfield and quickly transitioned into offense. She crossed the ball from the left sideline to Lynnae George who slotted the ball into the right side of the goal from six yards out

“They pressed hard and we made an early and silly mistake,” explained head coach Chantel Cappuccilli. “They took advantage of their moment, transitioned quickly, and put it away.”

The Warriors responded with resiliency.

The Warriors ended up tying Biola 2-2.

The following Saturday, Steck scored the first and third goal of the Warriors’ 5-0 win against Arizona Christian.

The Westmont Women’s Soccer team (6-2-1, 2-0-1 GSAC) was unable to maintain a lead against the Eagles of Biola (7-0-3, 1-0-2) and posted a 2-2 tie in their third Golden State Athletic Conference game of the year.

“It was a very competitive environment to play in,” said head coach Chantel Cappuccilli. “It was a physical battle and there were a lot of individual battles all over the field. Overall, it was a well fought game on both sides.”

The Warriors set the tone of the match with a goal off of a corner kick in the 11th minute. “It was really nice to be able to score on the set piece in the first half and set the tone in that way,” reflected Cappuccilli.

Last week’s GSAC Defensive Player of the Week, Angela Brown, took the corner kick and found the head of sophomore Alanna Richards. Richards headed the ball into the goal with pace to score her first goal of the season and earn the Warriors an early lead.

Senior Angela Brown is the first Westmont Women’s Soccer player this season to receive the Golden State Athletic Conference Women’s Soccer Player of the Week honors. Yesterday, she was named the Defensive Player of the Week after a week of strong and consistent defending.

The centerback from Menifee was a part of a defensive backline that held their first two GSAC opponents to a sum total of one goal. In addition to her defensive contributions, Brown also contributed offensively with effective ball distribution that jump-started many offensive drives.

Brown has three assists on the season and had the assist to Brooke Lillywhite’s goal that kicked off their GSAC season against San Diego Christian. Additionally, Brown has been the heart of the Warriors’ set pieces. Her other two assists came off of a corner kick against Soka University and a free kick against Northwestern Ohio University.

Westmont is currently 6-2 with a record of 2-0 in conference play, tonight the Warriors take on the Eagles of Biola.

After a disappointing loss in a well fought game against Azusa Pacific University, the unsatisfied Warriors were determined to not only play well, but to also get a win in their next game against San Diego Christian.

With this fire in their bellies, the #7 Warriors (5-2-0) prevailed and kicked off their Golden State Athletic Conference journey with a 3-1 victory over San Diego Christian (5-2-1).

The first goal of the game came in the 23rd minute when Senior, Angela Brown crossed the ball to Junior, Brooke Lillywhite. Lillywhite settled the ball with one touch, and in the next moment confidently drove a shot over the keeper’s head and into the goal to make the score 1-0.

The Warrior’s second goal came later on in the half, in the 49th minute when Senior, Kelsey Steck played a perfectly placed and weighted through ball to Sophomore, Jackie Lopez. Lopez, the Warrior’s number one goal scorer, slotted the ball into the lower right corner of the goal making the score 2-0 and giving her a total of five goals on the season.

“I don’t have a lot of words because I am very proud of how they played,” said Head Coach Chantel Cappuccilli about the Warrior’s performance in this last Saturday’s away game against Division II Azusa Pacific University. “They played with a crazy amount of heart tonight. It was a rivalry type of environment; it was a fight.” According to the score, the Warriors lost the battle 2-1 in over-time. However, according to Cappuccilli the Warriors had an overall better performance than the Cougars.

After a scoreless and largely defensive first half, Freshman Hailey Parker put the Warriors on the board with her second goal of the season in the 57th minute of the game.

The goal was an impressive passing combination between Brooke Lillywhite, Kelsey Steck, and Parker. Lillywhite crossed the ball to Steck near the upper right side of the goal; Steck quickly laid it off to Parker inside the box, who with composure slotted the ball with her right foot into the bottom corner of the goal. With this goal, the Warriors became the first team to score on the Cougars this season.

While Cappuccilli was proud of the Warrior’s offensive efforts, she points to the team’s defensive work as the heart of their performance.
