BC Drop Tough Battle Against AVC on Sophomore Night

Bakersfield, CA – The Bakersfield College women's soccer team opened the day celebrating their lone sophomore, Michelle Vargas in their final home game of the season. A combative 90-minute game ended with a 2-1 lost against the visiting Antelope Valley College Marauders (13-4-2).

AVC did not waste any time getting an early goal at the second minute of the game and again at the 16th minute from an unfortunate slip out of goalkeepers Sierrah Smith hands. It wouldn't be until a foul was called and BC was given the go ahead to shoot. Freshman Katelyn Gonzalez landed a perfect shot to the right corner from the left side at almost half field. The rest of the half was an aggressive battle with several fouls given on both sides, but no cards.

A quiet second half as far as goals go but not without a fight. Both sides continued to play aggressive while the Marauders kept majority of possession and had four shots on goal while BC had none in the final 45 minutes. Smith tallied the dat with a total of six saves.

This game concluded the 2021 season for the women. The Renegades started out stiff and rocky but eventually found their groove and ended the season 4-11-2 overall and 1-9-1 in conference.
