COC sophomore Gisselle Gomez scored in the 19th minute off a feed from Felicia Marquez and the Lady Cougars were in business at 1-0 

Early in the 24th minute it was Natalia Zuluaga Ramirez extending the advantage at 2-0, this time with Jessie Bonsness credited with the assist. 

Sophomore Ryan Shepherd put the exclamation point on things with her scoring touch in the 33rd minute. Lizeth Gutierrez put the scoring sequence in motion with her assist. 

SBVC got back into the game at 3-1, with Danira Valenzuela beat Canyons goalkeeper Annabella Gonzales for the Wolverines' lone goal. 

Gonzales (2-0) played the first half and recorded two key saves to earn the win. Hazel Saucedo finished the match and was credited with a save.
