The Saddleback women's soccer team picked up its first win of the season on Friday, defeating Compton College 1-0. It was the first win for new coach B.J. McNicol, as the Gauchos improved to 1-1 on the season.
Saddleback scored in the 42nd minute when Chelsea Duvenage (pictured) scored on a pass from Jenna Becker to give Saddleback its first lead of the season. The Gauchos held on for the win, outshooting Compton 15-2 in the process.
"We were dominant at times and probably should have scored a few more goals," McNicol said. "It was a great first win for the ladies."
McNicol played two goalkeepers during the course of the game as Amy Tamillo and Marissa Flasco both played a half. It was the first win for McNicol, who took over the reigns of the program during the summer months.
Saddleback improved to 1-1 on the season and will have the week off before hosting rival Santiago Canyon College in the conference opener on September 11. Game time is set for 6:15 pm at JSerra High School.
