Matadors crush Imperial
The offense of the Arizona Western women’s soccer team poured it on against Imperial Valley College on Wednesday in Yuma.
The Matadors got two-goal performances from three different players and beat Imperial Valley 10-0.
Eight of the goals came in the first half for Arizona Western, which improved to 8-3 on the year. Sara Rodriguez, Greta Espinoza and Samantha Alvarado each scored two goals a piece in the win, while Kristian Sanford, Brandy Martinez and Jeanette Carbajal each scored, too.
“Our ball movement was great tonight,” Matador coach Kenny Dale said. “I thought our scoring was really efficient and it was nice for some of our players to get some good experience tonight as we sit around the halfway point of the season.”
The Matadors, who host Phoenix College at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, had 21 shots on goal compared to one for Imperial Valley.
Matadors sweep South Mountain
The South Mountain volleyball team pushed Arizona Western in the first set but the Matadors cruised from there.
In a match played in Yuma because of problems to South Mountain’s gym, the No. 14 Matadors came away with a 26-24, 25-16, 25-13 win on Wednesday.
Amber Graham has 12 kills while Abbie Noland added 11 for the Matadors, who improved to 10-2 overall and 6-1 in Arizona Community College Athletic Conference play.
Arizona Western will get a chance to get revenge against Yavapai, which is the only conference team to beat the Matadors this year, when they travel to play the Roughriders at 7 p.m. Friday.
