Last Wednesday the UC San Diego Women’s Soccer team took on the University of San Diego, USD, in yet another league game. Both teams are competing in the San Diego tournament and could potentially face each other again in the championship, and after this game it is sure to be a good game if USD makes it to the championships. The game was played at 8:30 pm under the lights and the bleachers were full of fans. The first half was a pure stalemate with both teams generating decent chances to score on one another, but in the end proving unsuccessful. One attempt made by UCSD saw the ball go just wide of the far-right corner as the outstretched arms of the keeper just tipped it enough to miss the goal and go out for a corner. Another attempt made by the USD team had the UCSD defense scrambling in the box after a corner kick dropped right behind the keeper’s hands, but fortunately the ball fell to the head of a UCSD defender and was cleared out. The first half ended 0-0. The second half began and both teams were hungry to score. The game yet again was a stalemate in the middle of the field as one team would lose possession and the other would pick it up and so on. Eventually an opportunity came late in the second half when defender Hannah Hurd lobbed the ball over the top of the USD defense onto the running feet of forward Lizzie Blackwell who perfectly timed her ball, passing right to the feet of midfielder Monica Quevas, who coolly finished the chance as she was running into the box to put UCSD up 1-0. UCSD stayed strong throughout the half and ended the game with another win under their belts. They play again Sunday March 5th at 10 am on Sports Deck against Grand Canyon University.
