CSUMB women’s soccer challenges the Chico Wildcats

Following California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) men’s physical game with the CSU Chico Wildcats, CSUMB women’s team displayed a dominant winning performance on Oct. 8. 

The match between CSUMB and Chico showcased the Otter’s elaborate offense and defensive pressure. 

CSUMB’s women’s ball control and consistent possession helped the Otters maintain their shooting lead. 

Defender Monica Hrncir left Chico’s offensive drives with little breathing room, pressing the offense and clearing the ball. 

With 20 minutes remaining in the first half, Sierra Levy and Brenda Uribe’s passes broke through the Wildcat’s defense, and midfielder Catalina Viegez scored a measured long shot. 

The match was 1-0 at halftime, and the Otters delivered an immediate attack in the first eight minutes of the second half. 

Brenda Uribe battled through the Wildcat’s pressure, driving through the edge of the box. Jasmine Safarians completed Uribe’s pass with an impressive shot, securing another point for the Otters. 

CSUMB continued to exhibit excellent ball-handling skills that kept possession away from Chico’s offense. 

The Wildcats kept the Otters on their toes with aggressive attacks on goal during the final 30 minutes. A foul surrounding the Chico box provided Misty Ramirez with an opening for a free-kick. 

Ramirez scored with 27 seconds on the clock, putting an end to the match with a final score 3-0. 

Allexxis Hand, women’s forward, expressed her thoughts on the team’s performance.

“We were really after it tonight,” Hand said. “This proves that we’re going to have a great season.” 

The Otters face off against San Francisco State on Oct. 14.
