On Super Bowl Sunday, the Lady Tritons traveled to San Marcos State University to play their third game of the season. The Tritons were on a winning streak of two games and looked to keep their streak alive. The day was gloomy and crows were circling around the field as to hint towards a bad omen, but that did not stop the UC San Diego women from scoring the first goal of the game within the first minute of play. Freshman Kristen Wong dribbled the ball down the wing and made a beautiful cross that dropped to the feet of freshman McKenzie Kirn who slotted the ball right into the top netting of the goal. The game lulled on with UCSD dominating possession until a corner was given up halfway through the first half. The ball was lobbed into the 6-yard box area by one of the San Marcos girls and another got a touch on it, but luckily the ball hit Wong who was on the post of the goal. Wong then frantically cleared the ball, only to hit Senior Audrey Mays who was on the other goal post, but luckily was bailed out when the ball was finally cleared by Sophomore Hannah Hurd. Unfortunately, all the effort was in vain as the whistle was already blown for a goal before Wong cleared the ball out. The score stayed this way until the middle of the second half when UCSD went up for a corner, and freshman defender Alex Diaz aggressively found the ball in the masses of bodies and powerfully kicked it right past the keeper’s outstretched arms to put the Tritons up 2-1. Tempers flared as the game continued and the ref was not helping the cause, allowing fouls to slip by. Multiple cards were given out to both teams including both a yellow and a red card towards the end of the game. To kill time to secure the win for the Tritons, defender Diaz held the ball by the corner flag as two San Marcos girls struggled to steal it from her and as the whistle blew, the UCSD Women’s Club Soccer team conceived their third win of the Spring Season. Catch them next week playing at home against Riverside at 4pm on Warren where they will hopefully continue their undefeated streak.
