2011 Game Stories

By Dave Loveton, SBCC sports information

Saturday, Nov. 19 -- Southern Cal Regional at Westmont: San Bernardino Valley 1, #2 seed SBCC 0 (SBV wins on PKs, 5-4)  Final record: 16-3-0

Vaqueros upset in playoff debut
Defending state champs win on PKs, 5-4

 After 120 scoreless minutes, San Bernardino Valley won a dramatic penalty-kick shootout to stun No. 2 seed SBCC on Saturday in the opening round of the Southern Cal Regional women’s soccer playoffs at Westmont College.
 With the sun rapidly sinking into the mountains, the defending state champion Wolverines (14-5-3) won the PK battle 5-4, thanks to a save by Jennifer Keats on a second-round attempt by Katie Voss.
 “I’ve been making that PK for months, that was the first time I missed it,” said Voss, one of 13 sophomores who played their final game for the Vaqueros. “I thought we had more talent that them.
 “We had a lot of opportunities, we were just unlucky. There were two times when the defender stuck her foot on the line and it bounced back out.”
 Three minutes into overtime, Voss headed a pass off the right post. 
 Jessica Domenichelli, the MVP of the WSC North, scored the first penalty kick for the Vaqueros (16-3-0), who posted the second-highest win total in team history. Jo Lawlor, Jenna Rubin and Debbie Arreola also found the net.
 With the PKs tied 4-4, Ivana Ramirez scored in the lower left to give San Bernardino the victory.
 Domenichelli had a few chances to score on headers but her seven-game goal-streak was halted. She set records this year for single-season goals (27) and goals in a career (52).
 “It was a great game, I thought we outplayed them for 90 minutes,” said SBCC coach John Sisterson. “We got the ball down on the floor. Their keeper pulled off two great saves to keep them in the game.
 “It’s very, very disappointing to go 90 minutes, then another 30 minutes, then lose on PKs. But that’s the nature of the game.”
 The Wolverines outshot the Vaqueros 22-18 and had 10 shots on goal, compared to seven for the home team. Goalie Cheyenne Rodriguez made 10 saves for Santa Barbara.
 “I’m proud of the girls, they really played well and competed well. I didn’t think they deserved to lose the game. This was a great season. We won the Western State Conference for the first time and they should really be proud about the way they played today.”

 The No. 3-ranked Vaqueros completed the regular season with records of 16-2 and 11-1 in the WSC North. They’ll share the crown with Ventura if the Pirates win on Friday.
 “I’m so happy for the girls and the school because this is our first conference title,” said seventh-year coach John Sisterson after his 90th win (90-30-27, .704). “We were disappointed to be scoreless at halftime but we knew it was just a matter of time.”
 Jenna Rubin opened the scoring the 48th minute, converting from the top of the box on a pass from Katie Voss. Voss is the state leader with 16 assists, which is also a school record.
Jessica Domenichelli made it 2-0 in the 55th minute, putting in a rebound after Sylvia Ibarra headed a ball off the post. Domenichelli has scored in seven straight games and boosted her single-season school record to 27 goals. She’s the No. 2 scorer in California with 64 points.
 In the 73rd minute, Morgan Crumpley scored a header on a corner kick from Jo Lawlor. Tamara Ivanovic got the last goal in the 82nd minute on another corner from Lawlor.
 Santa Barbara has won its last seven games by a combined 35-2.
 It was the second WSC title in two days for Sisterson, who also coaches the SBCC men. It’s the first time that one school has won both the men’s and women’s WSC titles in the same year.
 The Vaqueros will open the Southern Cal playoffs on Saturday, Nov. 19.

 Ventura’s Evelyn Medina scored in the 65th minute.
 Morgan Crumpley, a sophomore defender from San Diego, had an outstanding game as she turned away three solid scoring chances. She stole the ball on a breakaway in the 25th minute and foiled a 3-on-1 situation from close range by kicking the ball out-of-bounds in the 38th minute. With 10 minutes to play, she made a save after the ball caromed off SBCC goalie Cheyenne Rodriguez.
 “I’ve been on this team two years and our goal was to beat Ventura,” said Crumpley. “In my last chance here, we did it. If we meet them in the playoffs, we know we can beat them.”

 With two games to go, Santa Barbara is poised to claim its first WSC women’s soccer title.

 “We know we’re a second-half team and we just kept hacking away at it,” said Voss, a sophomore midfielder. “Everybody has confidence in Jess. We know she’s going to score and she knows she’s going to score.”
 Domenichelli nearly had a hat trick but her shot in the 84th minute caromed off the crossbar. She has five goals and three assists in the last three games.
 “One of the problems today was the wind,” said SBCC coach John Sisterson. “It’s difficult for teams to play with a strong wind. In the second half, we told them to get the ball down. Typically, we play better against the wind and that’s what we did in the second half.

 “We scored three good goals and could have had more. If Jess had scored in the 61st minute, that would have been the goal of the year.”

 It was the fourth goal of the year for Voss, who has 11 points in two games. She's a sophomore midfielder from Amador Valley High.
 “This is a great win for our program,” said coach John Sisterson. “We had to change our style of play due to a smaller, natural-grass field. And the fact that we had just played a game two days earlier in 106-degree heat.”

 Voss gets hat trick in 8-0 win
Powell adds two goals in season opener

 Sophomore Katie Voss had a spectacular debut Tuesday with three goals and two assists as SBCC cruised to an 8-0 victory in the season opener at College of the Sequoias.
 Natalie Powell added two goals and an assist while Alison Raack and Nicole Payne each had two assists. Cheyenne Rodriguez and Hannah Zech combined on the shutout.
 The Vaqueros scored four goals in a 15-minute span of the first half. Powell started things off in the 13th minute on an assist from Voss.
 Voss, a former San Francisco State star, scored in the 15th, 22nd and 28th minutes. Raack assisted on her first goal and Powell on the second.
 Emily Myrick made it 5-0 in the 42nd minute on an assist from Payne.
 “The girls played very well in extreme heat,” said coach John Sisterson, who got his 75th win with the women after a four-hour drive to Visalia. “Jenna Rubin was outstanding at center-back and Regina Petrella played well in her college debut.”
 Brittany Brennhofer, Powell and Jessica Domenichelli added second-half goals in the 53rd, 86th and 89th minutes, respectively. Payne, Raack and Voss got the assists.
