Dominant second half by Otter women results in soccer win over SFS

Story by Oscar Jimenez Iniguez 

The California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB) women’s soccer team beat visiting San Francisco State University 3-1 in dominant fashion on Oct. 6 in their fifth California Collegiate Athletic Association match of the season.

The first half of the game saw San Francisco outshoot Monterey Bay, resulting in no goals. The Otters only had one shot on goal, while the Gators shot the ball five times, which was saved twice by CSUMB goalkeeper Maleni Morales (#0).

It proved to be a different story in the second half, as the Otters went on a hot streak scoring three consecutive goals. The first goal was by Monterey Bay’s forward Amelia McManus (#22), assisted by forward Nayeli Sandoval Gallo (#7) and midfielder Mitsy Ramirez (#30). McManus again shot and scored, this time assisted off a pass by midfielder Jasmine Safarians (#39). 

The third goal scored, sealing the victory for Monterey Bay, was by midfielder Tiger Rendon (#10), assisted by Gallo. This however didn’t deter San Francisco, as in a last ditch effort, they scored their only goal by midfielder Julia Hagedorn (#21) assisted by defender Carly Ortega (#2) in the final second of the game, which in the end proved to be futile.

Despite the slow start from the Otters, they came out on top with a dominant second-half performance.

The Otters improved to 5-4-3 overall and 2-2-1 in the California Collegiate Athletic Association, while the Gators fell to 3-7-2 and 1-3-1.

The Otters faced off against conference leader Sonoma State on Oct. 9, with a final score of 1-2, favoring Sonoma State. 

They will go up against Cal State East Bay on Oct. 14. For more information on upcoming games, visit
