The City College Rams got back into the win column with a 2-0 victory over the Los Medanos Mustangs on Sept. 22, 2023.
Unable to overcome a deficit of two goals during their state semifinal match, City College’s women’s soccer team saw their season end on Dec. 2 as they walked off the field after the final whistle.
Having the number two seed and home field advantage in the 2011 Women’s Soccer Norcal Regional playoffs, the Rams were already off on the right foot before their match between the 15th seeded Skyline Trojans even started.
The ball also seemed to bounce City College’s way during the game, as they were able to take advantage of an own goal by Skyline in the Rams 3-1 win at City College’s soccer field on Nov. 19.
With her team up 4-3 in penalty kicks after 120 minutes of soccer and nothing separating the two teams, sophomore midfielder Nicole Caiocca was one kick away from sending her team to Sacramento to play in the state championship.
She looked down at the ball, followed through with no hesitation and rocketed it through the net.
