The Vaqueros could not hold back the offense of the former state champion San Bernardino Valley Wolverines, losing 4-2 Tuesday afternoon at La Playa Stadium.

“I felt we were better than [San Bernardino],” said Vaquero forward Josefine Von Der Burg (No. 25). “We shouldn’t have lost.”

The Wolverines got to an early lead scoring in the 10th minute and again in the 13th minute. The first goal was scored by Wolverine sophomore midfielder Amairany Rosales (No. 30) with a bicycle kick. San Bernardino had an organized offensive attack against City College and in the 24th minute, Rosales scored her second goal of the game when two Vaquero defenders collided with freshman goalie Alex Camarillo (No. 0).

San Bernardino kept the ball on the City College side of the field for a majority of the first half, challenging the Vaqueros defense every step of the way. San Bernardino had superior passing and takeaways in the first half and City College could not get a foothold at all.

In the second half, City College came out with renewed energy and kept the ball in Wolverine territory. In the 59th minute, Vaquero freshman forward Von Der Burg scored City College’s first goal. She had a corner kick that was blocked back to her, but on her second attempt she was able to get the ball in the net.

“I am really proud of myself,” Von Der Burg said. “I came with a good attitude and still believed in us.”

However, the excitement was short lived. In the 61st minute, San Bernardino sophomore forward Leandra Garlinger (No. 4) scored her second goal of the game when Camarillo attempted to come out of the net to stop the advance. City College was able to strike back immediately with Von Der Burg’s second goal of the afternoon.

“She is a left footed player and she has two right footed goals,” Boyoko said. “That is really good for her and we can build from that and start getting more goals.”

In the 75th minute, City College freshman midfielder Kaitlyn Saperstein (No. 5) attempted a third goal but San Bernardino freshman goalie Arianna Rodriguez (No. 50) made a diving one handed stop. In the 82nd minute, Saperstein made a second attempt which resulted in a collision between her and Rodriguez. Both players went down for a time and Rodriguez had to be carted off the field due to injury.

The Vaqueros were unable to capitalize on their 9-1 advantage in corner kicks. The Wolverines only made nine shots, but six of those were on the goal.

City College falls to a record of  5-2-1. San Bernardino improves its record to 8-1-1.

The Vaqueros begin conference play next Tuesday, Oct. 6 in Oxnard. The next City College home game will be against L.A. Pierce on Friday, Oct. 9 at La Playa Stadium.
