Vaqueros Improve To 8-0 With 17-4 Win Over Fullerton College - Mar 15, 2023

Before Fullerton Game  

Santa Barbara, CA - An 8-0 first quarter at home in La Playa Stadium was the fast start SBCC wanted hosting visiting Fullerton Community College. The Vaqueros won easily to improve to 8-0 overall. The Hornets are the intercollegiate varsity team at Fullerton but it didn't phase the club from SBCC. Both programs use the thirty-five institution Western Women's Lacrosse League as their path to competition. The Vaqueros are now 2-0 against Fullerton this season.

It didn't take long to score. Eighteen seconds into the game sophomore Sabrina Forbes notched the first tally on an entry pass from freshman Kiara Kofoed (Orinda, CA). Forbes shot 100% on the evening going 5 for 5 on shooting. Forbes, a midfielder, also had 2 assists, 5 ground balls, 5 draw controls and 4 caused turnovers offset by no turnovers of her own to be a whopping +21 for her team.

Kofoed was 4 for 4 on shooting for her own 100% game and freshman Jordan Muetscheller had a career high as a Vaquero scoring 5 goals on 6 shots. Combined the three players were 14 for 15 and shot 93.3%. Coach Paul Ramsey was pleased with the efficiency on their shooting and the overall good play of the team.

"It's not just about scoring but it is about finishing when you have that good opportunity," said Ramsey. "Sometimes attackers get wrapped up in having to score or wanting to score but that's not the right mindset and it gets forced."

Ramsey continued, "If you're in the right place at the right time the ball will find you and you can do something for your team and the ball certainly found those three in the right places tonight."

Sophomore goalie Tatum Davis (Redondo, CA) had six saves on ten shots against her to save 60%. The entire defense played well and held a Fullerton team that had outscored their previous three opponents 50-18 to only four goals. The Vaqueros played a tight marking defense all over the field and caused a total of 21 Fullerton turnovers. When a Hornet put the ball on the ground under that pressure Alannah Cetti, Sofia Lewellyn, Taylor Ortiz and Yesenia Valdez scooped it up to get it back to the offense.

SBCC improved to 8-0 overall and is 3-0 in WWLL Central. The Vaqueros are eyeing the WWLL State Championship tournament in La Jolla on April 15th & 16th. Fullerton dropped to 3-5 overall and are 2-2 in WWLL South. SBCC plays next on April 8th at 1:00pm in a day trip to Westwood to wrap up WWLL Central D2 play at UCLA. Success there earns the Vaqueros an automatic qualifier spot in the post-season.

SBCC Closer To State Play-Offs With 12-5 Win - Mar 4, 2023

  SBCC Post Game

San Luis Obispo, CA - The Vaqueros made the short drive up Highway 101 to play at Cal Poly SLO B in a WWLL Central D2 game and won 12-5. SBCC claimed sole possession of first place in the Central Region in California with the victory. Prior to the game SBCC and the Mustangs were tied at the top of the standings. At game time the Vaqueros were ranked 5th nationally in the USA Lacrosse WCLA D2 Poll and Cal Poly were ranked 15th. 

"This was the toughest defense against us so far this season," said coach Paul Ramsey after the game, "and while we weren't always clean in transition because of it our effort level carried us through to the win." 

SBCC outshot the Mustangs 20 to 9 and converted on 12 of 20 to shoot 60%. Cal Poly goalie Grace Galy (San Jose, CA) had 8 saves. It were the most saves by a goalie while facing the Vaqueros offense all season. Her play outside the crease resulted in an interception of an almost assist by SBCC.

In the face of the Cal Poly defense SBCC made the most of the chances they were getting when they were on offense and their high shooting percentage facing good goal keeping kept the game from being closer. Freshman Kiara Koefed (Orinda, CA) led all scorers with 6 goals on 7 shots and had 1 assist. The midfielder also racked up 6 draw controls, 2 caused turnovers and 2 ground balls. Sophomore Sabrina Forbes (Santa Clarita, CA) had 3 goals, 1 assist and 2 draw controls.

Sophomore goalie Tatum Davis had 3 saves for SBCC and also had 2 ground balls and a caused turnover when she intercepted an errant Mustangs pass. Freshman defender Yesenia Valdez (Goleta, CA) had a career high 6 ground balls and an interception.

SBCC improved to 7-0 overall and 3-0 in WWLL Central. They are another step closer to their goal of qualifying for the state championships. The WWLL is hosting that tournament in La Jolla April 15 & 16 at UC San Diego. The Vaqueros next have a non-region game with Fullerton CC in SBCC La Playa Stadium on March 15th at 7:00pm. Then after spring break, looming large will be a game at UCLA B on April 8th for their final WWLL Central D2 game. Barring any suprises it will determine if they get an automatic qualifer spot in the state tournament.

SBCC Stings Hornets In 20-4 Win - Feb 26, 2023

La Mirada, CA - The Vaqueros played at Al Barbour Field on the Biola University Campus a second day in a row and this time took down Fullerton College 20-4. SBCC had played there on Saturday versus Biola and the Fullerton game was moved there with the Hornets grass field unplayable following all the rain storms.

This was the toughest matchup so far for SBCC with the Hornets keeping up and at times outrunning the Vaqueros. Ultimately though the SBCC skill level powered them to an 8-0 first half and then on to a 13-1 halftime lead. 

"We knew they were faster than teams we've played so far and the players put together a really nice start despite that to really get out the gate on them in this one," said coach Paul Ramsey after the game. 

Freshman Kia Kofoed (Orinda, CA) was masterful at the center circle with four draw controls for herself and sending it to teammates another three times before eventually moving into a defensive position for the entire second half.  Kofoed scored five goals on six shots. After the move to defense, to give other players midfield time, she had 2 caused turnovers and 4 ground balls.

"Kia's defense is solid and the other team better not hang their stick around her or they'll lose the ball, so that was fun to watch that aspect of her play," added Ramsey.

SBCC Bests Biola After Return From BYE Week - Feb 25, 2023

La Mirada, CA - The SBCC women's lacrosse club traveled to Biola University to play at Al Barbour Field on the Eagles campus and won 22-1 after leading 13-1 at halftime. The Vaqueros were coming off a BYE week in which they did not compete but it did not slow down SBCC until they slowed it down and stopped shooting. The Eagles and the Vaqueros braved the elements to get this game in with off and on rain and 47 degree temperature that added some variety for everyone.

Eleven SBCC players contributed to the offense and twelve goals were assisted. Freshman Kiara Kofoed (Orinda, CA) led all scorers with 3 goals and 3 assists. Sophomore goalie Tatum Davis (Redondo, CA) had four saves with only one goal allowed. 

SBCC improved to 5-0 overall with the win and 2-0 in WWLL Central D2.  Biola drops to 1-3 overall and 1-2 in WWLL Central D2. The Vaqueros are in action again right away on Sunday when they play Fullerton CC in a 1:30pm game. This contest is being hosted by Biola to get the game in on turf amid all the California winter storming. SBCC is in the middle of a four game away series that started on February 11th with their win at Cal State Fullerton and concludes with a March 4th game at Cal Poly SLO.


Jumbo Of A Third Quarter Distances SBCC From Titans - Feb 11, 2023

Fullerton, CA - The Vaqueros had a 7-3 halftime lead on the road at Cal State Fullerton in a WWLL D2 Inter-Region game but in this matchup with the aggressive Titans it didn't seem like much of a lead. Fullerton were 3-1 going into the contest with wins over the clubs from Chico State, Weber State and Stanford. Their lone loss was a 10-14 contest with 2022 WWLL North D2 first place UC Santa Cruz. Unlike the last three cruise control wins for SBCC it took some effort and composure from the Vaqueros to break it open. It were a 6-0 third quarter that did just that and SBCC was on their way to a 14-5 win in their first away game.

Sophomore Kiara Kofoed (Orinda, CA) snagged nine draw controls during the game and overall SBCC won that battle with 17 of 21 draw controls going the way of the Vaqueros. The possessions on those 50/50 balls made a big difference for SBCC. Sophomore Sabrina Forbes (Santa Clarita, CA) led all scorers with 6 goals and 2 assists for the Vaqueros. Sophomore Marianna Gamet (Redondo, CA) scored two goals and again, for the fourth game, scoring was balanced for SBCC with eight players getting in on goals and assists.

"This is the first game this season we felt the other team was playing defense and the other goalie was making saves," commented Coach Paul Ramsey.  "It was nice to see our composure in the face of that pressure and to come out after halftime to score six unanswered goals to put it away."

"Good teams are going to bring it on defense and we're going to get bumped around so how we play with pressure on ball and the other team covering us off-ball is how we progress to championship level," added Ramsey.

The Vaqueros outshot Fullerton 30-11 to win 14-5. Sophomore goalie Tatum Davis (Redondo, CA) faced more shots in one game than all previous games combined and saved 6 of the 11 shots on goal by the Titans. SBCC improved to 4-0 while the Titans dropped to 3-2.  The Vaqueros enjoy a week off and play next at Biola on February 25th and then at Fullerton CC on February 26th. Cal State Fullerton plays next at Cal State San Marcos on February 18th. 


SBCC Ole's The Matadors 18-1 In WWLL Central Opener - Feb 5, 2023


Carpinteria, CA - Cal State Northridge held SBCC off longer than the Vaquero's two previous opponents but ultimately it was a 5-0 first quarter for SBCC and an 18-1 win at the Santa Barbara Polo Club in the Santa Barbara Shootout. It were a WWLL Central Division 2 matchup and the result put the Vaqueros in a first place tie with Biola for the region standings. 

Sophomore Paris Lisi (Walnut Creek) led SBCC in scoring with 1 goal and 5 assists. Sophomore Sabrina Forbes (Santa Clarita, CA) scored five goals with one of those a helper from Lisi. Overal Lisi found five different targets with Maya Sordoillet (Mill Valley CA), Kia Kofoed (Orinda, CA), Marianna Gamet (Redondo CA) and Valeria Bond (Livermore, CA) also benefiting from her passing.

The Santa Barbara Shootout is an annual event that pulls in forty or more teams every year. It's a great path to convenient competition every year for the Vaqueros. SBCC improved to 3-0 overall and 1-0 in league.  Northridge dropped to 0-3 overall. The Vaqueros play next at Cal State Fullerton on Saturday, February 11th, in a 1:00pm game. The game replaces an originally scheduled game at Moorpark College. The Raiders asked to reschedule for later in the season.
