SBVC women off to state tournament

The men’s cross country team from San Bernardino Valley College already has won a state title this month. Could the women’s soccer team be far behind?

The Wolverines advanced to the Final Four for the first time in school history with a 4-2 win over Ventura on Saturday. The game was not THAT close. SBVC had 15 shots to six for the Pirates. And the shots they had were all good shots as most of the game was played in the Ventura end of the field.

It was team that came out poised and aggressive from the start. Not even a gusting rain that blew across the field for most of the game could slow the determined Wolverines.

Goals were scored by Crystal Sanchez, Kayla Kellstrom, Amanda Simpson and Mariela Ortega.

Now its on to the state semifinal on Friday at College of the Canyons where SBVC will square off against Fresno at 4 p.m. This is a team that has overcome adverstiy time and time again. So I would not bet against it.
