By Noe Ortega

East Los Angeles Women’s soccer ended a season to forget with an overall record of 6-11-3.

ELAC ended in last place with zero wins, six losses and two draws in the South Coast Conference-North play.

The Huskies played its last game of the season on November 10 with a 2-0 win against Compton College with two goals from freshman forward Breanna Sandoval.

Out of the 20 games played, the Huskies scored 23 goals and had 91 shots overall.

Freshman midfielder Vanessa Torres and sophomore forward Stephanie Galvan played 17 out of the 20 games.

Galvan was ELAC’s top scorer with seven scored and one assist overall. Though the Huskies came in last place in the conference, two ELAC players were ranked in the top five for most shots in the SCC-North.

Galvan ended the season with 33 shots and came in second, while sophomore forward Jennifer Toledo ranked third with 30 shots.

ELAC head coach Tessa Troglia mentioned in an interview with ELAC Campus News, after a 1-0 loss to Pasadena City College at home on Nov. 3, that the problem they’ve had this season is finishing. In the eight conferences games played, ELAC lost four of them by one goal averaging 4.5 shots a game.

ELAC’s defense had a difficult time this season as they received 49 goals in the 20 games played which is an average of at least two goals a game.

ELAC’s biggest wins both came in October with a 4-0 win at Los Angeles Harbor College on the 13th and a 3-0 win at home against Long Beach City College on the 24th both being cross over matches.

The Huskies’ toughest defeats also came in October when they lost 7-0 against conference rivals Pasadena City College on the 6th and against Cerritos College 6-0 on the 17th. Both loses took place  at home.

The Huskies had a small upgrade from last season’s record of 2-12-7 in 21 games played.

Freshman goalkeeper Julia Rivera played the most games, 14, with 974 minutes played. Rivera had 49 saves in 13 games played and averaged a goal a game.

Rivera was also one of the top five goalkeepers in the SCC-North play with the most saves and save percentage.

Nine sophomores have played their last season for ELAC.
