On Sept. 7, the California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) women’s soccer team played against University of Hawaii Hilo and came out victorious. The game took place on CSUMB’s campus at the Otter Soccer Complex.
This was their second game of the season and so far, the Otters are on a winning streak. With only five minutes left before halftime, sophomore Sierra Levy scored the first goal of the game, putting the Otters in the lead at 1-0.
During the second half, the Vulcans score one goal, turning the game into a 1-1 tie. Even though the Vulcans managed to get one goal, the Otters made sure it didn’t happen again, taking the game into overtime.
Another 10 minutes went by and no one scored, meaning the game would continue into double overtime. After going into double overtime, sophomore Lia Kilgore scored a goal with only 30 seconds left on the clock, winning the game for the Otters.
The game ended with a final score of 2-1, with CSUMB securing their second victory of the season. While the Vulcans played well, the Otters played better and kept their winning streak alive.
The girl’s soccer team is on Sept. 11 at Menlo College in Atherton, California at 1:30 p.m.
