The Rams started fast with an opening goal in the third minute by freshman Paige Pineda Aliamus who bagged her third goal of the season. The early goal proved to be important. Head Coach Jeff Wilson said, “For us it’s very important to start scoring goals because that’s been kind of our Achilles heel.”

 

Sophomore Yvette Moreno recorded five saves on the day and City’s second shutout of the season. The Rams put the game to bed when sophomore Fatima Waldo Garcia scored off a free kick in the 85th minute.

 

“Anytime you can find a win it’s important,” Wilson said. “[Los Medanos] run the Bay Valley League so it’s an important win for us too.”
