City College’s soccer teams got through a rough week on the schedule with both the men’s and women’s squads picking up a win and a draw each.

The women’s team faced the Evergreen Valley Hawks early in the week. Sophomore Jesse Bareilles continued her scoring onslaught with three goals to help City win 4-0. A 0-0 tie against Foothill College leaves the team with a 4-1-2 record, with matches against Canada College and Chabot College coming next week.

The men’s soccer team went on the road to Las Positas and were met by heartbreak when a late goal from the opposition tied the game 4-4.

In their next match against Canada College, the Rams netted three goals to win 3-1. The Rams have a 4-2-1 record and head to Gavilan and Ohlone college for their next game.          

And the most impressive feat on the pitch this season? The Rams—both squads—have not been held scoreless in conference play for the entire season.
