Hawks 0, Wolverines 0
Orange, CA -
In an intriguing battle between two strong community college
teams, the Hawks dominated for long periods but were unable to convert their
goal-scoring opportunities in to goals. The early opportunities fell to the
Hawks and Danielle Snook came close twice from Taylor Hollywood serves.
Freshman Brooke Mays forced a good save from the San Bernardino Valley keeper
just before half-time. The Hawks back-line looked solid and neither team could
find the breakthrough and so both teams looked for inspiration at the break.
The second-half started similarly but as the half
progressed the Hawks began to push harder and harder for the decisive goal.
Kylie Klein came close and then turned provider for Mandi Willis and Jordyn
Belanto but neither could convert. Denise Delgadillo went close from distance
but as the clock ticked down, it wasn't enough. Casey Pulido did not have to
make a save in preserving the shut-out.
The Hawks play next at Mira Costa college on Thursday,
September 4th. Kick-off is at 4pm. Thanks to all the local teams and families
who came out to enjoy our Annual Community Night. We hope you enjoyed the
occasion and thank you for your support.

2014 Season Begins...
Monterey Park, CA - Welcome back. Finally the 2014 season is upon us. Before we begin our coverage for the new season, we'd like to recognize the 8 sophomore Hawk athletes who have moved on to play at 4 year schools this coming season; 2 at the Division 1 level, 4 at the Division 2 level and 2 at NAIA schools. Congratulations to Shauna Salcido, Jenny Konishi, Sam Jones, Amanda Gomez, Jamie Smith, Reanne Macon, Celly Ruiz and Amanda Scheatzle. We wish them well on their new adventures.
The 2014 Hawks opened the new campaign with a 6-2 victory over the ELAC Huskies. The early exchanges were even, until Andrea Najera capitalized on a Kaitlin Gishwaller cross to open the scoring after about 5 minutes. The Huskies responded well and 2 superb individual efforts left the Hawks in relatively unknown territory, trailing 2-1. SCC responded with Alyssa Regalado, tapping the ball home from close range after good work by Kylie Klein to go into the break at 2- 2.
The second-half was a much improved SCC display. Najera tallied twice in the opening minutes after quality serves from both Denise Delgadillo and America Quintana. Then a wonderful reverse pass by Brooke Mays freed Najera to capitalize for her fourth goal. Brooke Klein completed the scoring with a firm finish from a pass by Mandi Willis. Casey Pulido and Odalis Elias completed the 2nd half shut-out in what turned out to be a convincing win.
The Hawks now prepare for Saturday evenings home contest against San Bernardino Valley College on Saturday, August 30th at 6.30pm. This is our annual 'Community Night' where young soccer players dressed in uniform will get to meet and warm down with the team after the game. Hot dogs and nacho's will be available. There will be no charge for parking. Thanks to all those who travelled to see the Hawks today. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday.
