Hawks players conduct clinic in Placentia
To start the season, some of the Santiago Canyon College Women's Soccer team conducted a soccer clinic for TOPSoccer players at Wagner Elementary School in Placentia. Our student-athletes, (including Jameelah Powell picture right), were hosted by long-time devotee Sandy Castillo and the Top Dogs soccer program. TOPSoccer is a nationwide community-based soccer program that includes young athletes
with mental and physical challenges.
The Hawks players warmed-up with the Top Dogs athletes, before leading them through a series of fun training exercises designed to improve their soccer skills. It was an enjoyable evening for everyone involved. Thank you again to Sandy and the Top Dogs team for hosting us.

Hawks See Bigger Picture Despite Defeat
Santiago Canyon College entered the contest proud of the 7 State Final-Four appearances in the last 9 years, the 2 State Championships, and 1 National title as well as the 4 Academic State Championship titles in the last decade.
This game between the Hawks and the Cerritos Falcons was to be a repeat of last year's 2014 State Final. From Santiago Canyon, 11 of the 13 freshman players from that game competed this year. For Cerritos only 1 of their 12 freshman players from 2014 returned to their roster. As the game drew closer, the visiting Hawks were hoping that the disparity in previous experience at this level would help prove to be the difference…
The Falcons were sharper in the opening stages of the contest, and SCC survived an early scare to then settle in to the game. The hard, uneven surface suited the Cerritos direct style of play but with neither team able to find the break-through, the game remained scoreless at the break.
Santiago Canyon dominated for long stretches in the second period and both Kylie Klein and Brooke Mays forced big stops from the Falcons keeper. The game turned in the 81st minute when the Falcons connected on a corner to take the lead. The Hawks could not find a way back, and were left contemplating what might have been, finishing the season with an 18-3-2 record.
But despite this result, when we look at the bigger picture of athletics at the community college level, from 2010 through 2013 Santiago Canyon have so far transferred 93% of returning sophomore athletes to 4 year schools… another statistic the program can be truly proud of.
Thanks go out to the large contingent of Hawks followers and alumni who were cheering on the team today. Thank you for your continued support of what we do as a program and what we stand for.

Hawks Topple the Number 1 Seed
Santiago Canyon entered the 2nd round of play-offs on the back of a road win against College of the Canyons who had been unbeaten in their previous 17 games. Today the Hawks were again the visitors, this time against the Number 1 seed in Southern California, Chaffey College,
Brooke Mays hit the cross-bar in the early going, as the Hawks came out firing but, despite some concerted pressure, SCC could not find the break-through before half-time. The second period also went goal-less and so the game moved in to extra-time. Mays found her way behind the Chaffey back-line but could not convert as the Hawks continued to push for the opening goal. In the 110th minute of play Jade Anderson broke down the left flank and Alyssa Regalado struck to give the Hawks a 1-0 lead. In goal for the Hawks, Casey Pulido had been relatively untroubled all afternoon but, as the clock ticked down, she was called upon to make a fine save from a shot from distance.
The win takes the Hawks in to the Regional Finals this coming Saturday, November 28th against the winner of Cerritos College and San Bernardino Valley College at a time and location to be determined. Thanks again go out to all those who came out to cheer on the Hawks today.

Cougars 1, Hawks 2
College of the Canyons entered the contest on a 7 game winning streak and unbeaten in their last 17 games, but it was the visiting Hawks who dominated proceedings to move on to the next round against an opponent to be determined. Alondra Guzman provided the impetus mid-way through the first-half claiming the assist as Brooke Mays got the Hawks on the scoreboard. Within three minutes the Hawks were 2 - 0 up, with Guzman stabbing the ball home from close range. The Hawks back line was rarely stretched in the opening half, with Jameelah Powell, America Quintana and Danielle Snook standing firm.
In the 2nd period, Canyons flashed a ball wide in the opening moments, but after that it was the Hawks who looked the more likely to score. Krista Talamo, Kylie Klein, Guzman and Alyssa Regalado all went close, but SCC couldn't find that important third goal. Canyons pulled a goal back in the closing moments with a powerful drive but it was the Hawks who ran out victorious and now prepare for Tuesday's 2nd round contest.
A special thanks goes out to the large contingent of Hawks followers who travelled up to see the game today. Details of the time and location of Tuesday's game will appear in the Schedule/Results section of this site later tomorrow.

Over a Decade of Success
Last week's home 5-1 win over Golden West College sealed a remarkable 12th consecutive Orange Empire Conference Title for Santiago Canyon College in the 9 team league. The Championship marks over a decade of continued success on and off the field for the Hawks.
Winning Santiago Canyon College's first State Championship in any sport in 2006, and the first National Championship in 2009, the Hawks have appeared in the State Finals in 7 of the last 9 years. The success on the field has been matched in the classroom with Santiago Canyon claiming the title of Academic State Champions for Women's Soccer 4 times in the same timespan (2005, 2006, 2010 and 2012). Of the 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 sophomores, 93% have so far transferred to four year schools.
The Hawks have a 'bye' on Friday, and with the league title already secured, start preparations for the play-offs beginning Saturday, November 21st at a time and location to be determined.

Hawks 0 Gauchos 1
SCC fell to their first home defeat of the season against a committed Gaucho team. The Hawks went behind against the run of play on 35 minutes. Despite dominating for long periods, SCC could not find the cutting edge in front of goal with Kylie Klein and Jade Anderson coming closest.
It was more of the same in the second period, as the Hawks showed more urgency, and Alyssa Regalado curled a shot tantalizingly wide, Ty Juarez had to make a reaction save, as Saddleback looked to threaten on the counter. Brooke Mays twice went close but despite concerted pressure in the closing stages, SCC could not find a way back in to the game.
The Hawks end the regular season as Orange Empire Conference Champions, with a record of 16-2-2. The team now looks ahead to the play-offs which begin on Saturday, November 21st against opponents to be confirmed early next week. Thank you to all those who came out to cheer on the Hawks today.

The Hawks claimed their 12th consecutive Orange Empire Crown with a 5-1 home win against the Golden West Rustlers. Krista Talamo scored the opener after just 3 minutes, hitting home a half-volley after good work from Alondra Guzman. On 25 minutes Brooke Mays grabbed her 21st goal of the season and was on-hand again just before the half-time whistle to put the Hawks 3-0 up. Kylie Klein clipped a ball in from the right, Alyssa Regalado returned it across the face of the goal and Mays stabbed the ball across the line.
After the break the determined Rustlers pulled a goal back from a direct free kick. The Hawks again responded and on 72 minutes, Lauren Sabella scored the fourth. Mays broke and hit a strong left-footed drive, which Sabella turned in from close range. Jade Anderson completed the scoring 5 minutes from time crashing the ball in to the roof of the net from inside the 6 yard box.
The win sealed the OEC Championship with one game still to be played for the Hawks. Congratulations go out to the entire team, coaching staff, and athletic trainers. Thanks also go out to all those in attendance today.

Mustangs 0 Hawks 4
Two goals and one assist from Alyssa Regalado put the Hawks on their way to a comfortable victory against a disciplined Norco Mustangs team. In the opening quarter of the game, SCC looked comfortable in possession with out creating many clear-cut goal-scoring chances. The introduction of Regalado changed that and on 23 minutes she received a ball from Yazmeen Flores and let fly from distance to put the Hawks a goal up.
Three goals in a five-minute spell before the break sealed the contest. On 37 minutes Regalado played in Lauren Sabella who calmly slotted the ball beyond the Norco keeper. Four minutes later, Regalado struck again from distance. Then Amber Stevens found Sabella for her second goal, to send the Hawks in to the half-time break leading 4-0.
Julissa Valerio came closest to adding to the goal tally in the second period, but in the end the Hawks ran-out comfortable victors. Ty Juarez, Abby Gnewuch and Casey Pulido collected the shut-out.
The Hawks play next at home to the Golden West Rustlers on Friday November 6th, knowing that a win will earn them the 2015 Orange Empire Conference title. Kick-off is at 3pm. Thanks to all the Hawks fans who travelled out to Norco today.

Hornets 0 Hawks 2
A goal at the beginning of each half was enough to secure the points on the road at Fullerton College. Alondra Guzman got the Hawks on the board with a goal less than 90 seconds in to the contest. SCC worked the ball out of the back to Amber Stevens on the left and she fed Guzman who slotted the ball away left-footed from 16 yards. From there the Hawks continued to drive forward against a hard-working Hornets team. A combination of some poor finishing and some fine stops kept the Hawks out and SCC went in to the break just one goal up.
The second period began in much the same way, but the Hawks couldn't find the decisive second goal. On 55 minutes Danielle Snook headed clear and SCC broke quickly. Brooke Mays squared for Alyssa Regalado who calmly finished to put SCC 2-0 up. Ty Juarez and Casey Pulido shared the shut-out and were rarely troubled behind a resolute defense of Snook, Kennedi Hauck, Jameelah Powell and Sommer Dey.
SCC play next at Norco College on Tuesday, November 3rd. Kick-off is at 1pm. Thank you to all the travelling fans who came out to support the team today.

Mays skipped past her defender to cross for Krista Talamo who slotted the ball away from close range.
The Hawks started the second-half brighter but Cypress equalized with in five minutes of the restart. From there both sides huffed and puffed.

Santiago Canyon continued to push forward in the second period with the Pirates trying to find a way back in to the game.

The Hawks and visiting Lasers shared seven first-half goals in an intriguing battle between two attack-minded teams. Throughout the Hawks looked dangerous in possession and were a constant threat from set-pieces. Danielle Snook hit the bar with a firm header prior to Kennedi Hauck opening the scoring with a low drive from 18 yards. Minutes later Brooke Mays powered a header past the IVC keeper from an America Quintana serve. Mays then latched on to a pass from Renee DeLaTorre to slot away the third goal. Kylie Klein added the fourth following a fine ball by Amber Stevens.
The Hawks stepped off the gas. IVC responded with a low drive across keeper Ty Juarez and a near-post finish to pull back two quick goals. SCC responded with Klein cutting inside before slipping in Mays to complete her hat-trick and put the Hawks up 5-2 at the break.
That was where the scoring ended as SCC continued to push forward in the second period but couldn't add to the scoreline. Casey Pulido collected the second-half shut-out as the entire outfield squad saw minutes on the field.

Hawks Defeated on the Road
A powerful strike from a heavily disputed free-kick on the edge of the area, just six minutes from time separated the two top teams in the Conference standings. A slight breeze took the edge off the 100 degree weather as the game kicked off on Saddleback's tight East Field. The first half was reduced to a first and second ball game, interspersed with set-pieces and neither team created many openings. Just before half-time Brooke Mays flashed a drive wide of the post before having another shot well-saved but the game remained tied going in to the break.
The second period was equally tight. Danielle Snook had a header cleared off the line and Casey Pulido pulled off a great stop for the Hawks to keep the game even. Neither team could capitalize on their set-pieces until Saddleback broke the deadlock with a direct free-kick. The Hawks responded with efforts from Karina Gomez, Jade Anderson and Amber Stevens, but it was too little too late as the clock wound down.
The Hawks play again at home to Irvine Valley College on Friday, October 16th at 1pm. Thanks to all those who braved the heat to attend today's game.

Hawks Strike Late
A Jade Anderson shot 8 minutes from time separated the two-teams on a hard and fast field in Huntington Beach. A resilient Rustlers back-line ultimately succumbed to a long range drive beyond the reach of the Golden West keeper to give the Hawks a 1-0 win.
The visiting Hawks had started brightly and Alyssa Regalado and Krista Talamo both went close in the opening minutes. SCC dominated for long periods in the half but couldn't break through and the teams went in to the break scoreless.
SCC upped the tempo in the second-half, and a great move down the right involving America Quintana and Lauren Sabella ended in a goal-mouth scramble that Golden West managed to hook clear. With the clock winding down, Anderson struck the all-decisive goal on a feed from Sommer Dey. Defensively, SCC rarely looked threatened with Casey Pulido collecting the shut-out as the Hawks closed out the game comfortably.

Santiago Canyon 3 Fullerton 1
Six changes to the Hawks starting line-up disrupted the team rhythm as the visiting Fullerton Hornets put up a firm resistance in the early-going.

Hawks 7, Pirates 1
The Hawks bounced back from the disappointment of Saturdays 1- 1 tie with a convincing win against a hard-working Ventura Pirates team. The game was delayed for over an hour due to lightning and thunder storms in the area. By the time the game kicked-off the rain clouds had passed, but two knee injuries tainted the opening period of the game in what was a full-blooded contest.
Brooke Mays powered home the opening goal around the 20 minute mark and then turned provider for Paige Railey to rise and head the Hawks further in to the lead. Ventura pulled a goal-back, but almost immediately Renee DeLaTorre was upended in the box and Mays sent the Hawks in to the break with a 3- 1 lead.
Santiago Canyon looked far more assured in the second period. Mid-way through the half the Hawks sealed the contest. Jade Anderson was the provider on three separate occasions in eight minutes with Mays adding her 3rd and 4th goals and Kylie Klein rounding the keeper to put SCC 6- 1 up. Alondra Guzman rounded out the scoring with a clever finish from distance.
Thanks go out to the many Hawks supporters who stuck around today despite the uncertainty the game would go ahead. Santiago Canyon play next on Tuesday, September 15th at 3pm at Irvine Valley College in the opening round of the Orange Empire Conference.

Hawks 1 Wolverines 1
In an intriguing battle between two strong community college teams, honors were even as neither team could find a second goal to claim the win. It started brightly for the Hawks in the seventh minute when a Jameelah Powell cross behind the San Bernardino Valley backline was inadvertently turned in by a Wolverine to put the Hawks a goal up. Some poor defending allowed the Wolverines back in to the contest ten minutes later but the Hawks continued to look the dangerous in front of goal. Alyssa Regalado went close after good work from Kylie Klein and Abbi Swanson had a goal disallowed after Brooke Mays stole in down the flank. Neither team could find the breakthrough and so both teams looked for inspiration at the break.
The second-half started similarly with the Hawks looking for the decisive goal. Karina Gomez came close and then Regalado turned provider for Krista Talamo who was unable to convert as both teams had to settle for the tie.
The Hawks play next at home to Ventura College on Wednesday, September 9th. 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.

Hawks Win at Mt SAC
Two goals in the opening twenty minutes of play were enough to see the Hawks to a comfortable win against a hard-working Mount San Antonio College team. Alyssa Regalado opened the scoring after good combination play between Kylie Klein and Brooke Mays allowed her to side-foot the ball past the advancing keeper to put the Hawks on their way. Just 5 minutes later Klein unleashed a dipping swerving half-volley across the keeper and in to the far corner. The Hawks never looked back. SCC keeper Casey Pulido turned a shot wide from distance on the half-hour mark. Klein shot wide when well placed and the Hawks went in to the break 2 goals up.
The second period was a more open game as the Mounties tried to respond and the Hawks pushed for the third goal. Mays and Krista Talamo went close for the Hawks. Pulido wasn't troubled further as the Hawks back-line held strong.
Next up for the Hawks is San Bernardino Valley College on Saturday, September 5th at 6.30pm. Thanks to all the Hawks fans who came out to cheer on the team today.

Huskies 0 Hawks 7
The 2015 season began with a comfortable win for the Hawks on the road against a resilient East LA College team. Freshmen Abbi Swanson, Krista Talamo and Karinna Gomez all opened their goal-scoring accounts for Santiago Canyon. But it was sophomores Kylie Klein and Brooke Mays who set SCC on their way. The opening two goals came with in the space of a minute around the ten minute mark. Klein dispossessed the full-back before rolling a ball to Mays, who slotted the ball past the advancing keeper. Seconds later the Hawks were two goals up as Mays rounded the keeper after latching on to a through-ball from Alondra Guzman. Mays sealed her hat-trick, cutting inside from the left flank for the third. On the stroke of half-time, Abbi Swanson crashed home the fourth after some good play down the right by Klein and America Quintana to effectively seal the win.
The Hawks began the second period in much the same manner. Klein scored the fifth and then Mays set up center-forward Talamo following a good ball in behind the Huskies back line by Jade Anderson. Gomez then rounded out the scoring with a looping header over the keeper. Casey Pulido and Ty Juarez shared the shut-out in goal.
The Hawks now look to next Tuesday's contest at Mt SAC. Thank you to all the Hawks followers who came out to cheer the team on today.

Alumni Hawks Swoop In
In our first alumni game in the 15 year history of Santiago Canyon College Women's Soccer, over 40 former Hawks from seasons past, returned to take on the current team in an entertaining game between two talented squads in front of a large crowd. It was great to see so many players, coaches and families return. For some the field was in a different location. For many, the campus was barely recognizable from when they attended SCC. But for all, it was good to reunite, see some new faces and get reacquainted with some team-mates from years past.
The Women's Soccer staff would like to thank the alumni student-athlete soccer community for their individual and collective contributions to the success of SCC Women's Soccer program specifically.
It would also like to thank them for helping build the profile of the college in the local community and across the State/Nation.
The list of accomplishments for the program is something that all team-mates can be proud of, from our inaugural season in 2000 to our currents squads 2014 21-1-3 record, 11th consecutive Orange Empire Conference Championship, and our 7th State-Final appearance in the last 9 years. Of course, the 2006 and 2009 squads distinguish themselves with their respective State and National titles but the college can also proudly boast the teams academic achievements. The SCC squad has won the State Academic title 4 times in the last 8 years and 94% of the outgoing sophomores in the last 3 cycles have transferred to university, with 9 players last year moving on to play.
Such figures are a testament to the support of the college community, including faculty, classified staff, and administration and also our community college district. The respective Athletic Directors over this period also deserve recognition for helping the program and it's student-athletes to flourish. A substantial part of the credit should go to the coaches and athletic trainer that work so closely with the team. But the real credit goes to the players, who embrace a life of personal responsibility and accountability, and go on to achieve great things.
Below follows a list of former student-athletes listed in order by year and by maiden name, if now married. If you are reading this as a former player and want to be included in future events please email Ian at
A sincere thank you to all those who came back last night. #Hawk4Life.
