The City College women’s soccer team closed its best season in school history with a 2-0 loss in the State Semifinal against Diablo Valley College from Northern California.

The Vaqueros who were the No. 2 seed from Southern California fought the Vikings who were No. 1 seed from Northern California, Friday night at the Ventura College Sportsplex.

“We’re all very proud of the girls,” commented head coach John Sisterson. “They’ve had a marvelous season and a great run in playoffs.”

Both teams were scoreless in the first 45 minutes of the semifinal.

It wasn’t until the 61st minute when Viking Karla Ramos sent a cross to Forward Cameron Chan who scored with a header.

City College stayed atop with six shots on goal compared to five from the Vikings.

“We created a lot of chances and the score could have been so very different, but that’s soccer,” said Sisterson. “Sometimes it’s just not going to be your night.”

Diablo Valley sealed its pass to the State Final with a goal from Forward Karla Ramos in the 83rd minute. The Vikings moved to 18-1-6.

“I’m really proud of how far we came,” said Vaquero Forward Katherine Sheehy. “No one thought we would get here.”

The Vaqueros finished the season at 16-7-1 and made history for making it to the Final Four as the 14 seed out of 19 teams, for the first time.

“I thought the girls played very well tonight even though we lost,” said Sisterson. “They can hold their heads up high the way they’ve performed.
