Playing in front of one of the largest crowds of the season at Falcon Stadium on Sophomore Recognition Night, the FLC women's soccer team exacted some revenge on a Sierra College team that had previously defeated the Falcons a month ago in Rocklin (1-0) with an exciting 2-1 victory on Tuesday night. The Falcons built a 2-0 first-half lead behind freshman Breanna Brumet's two goals before allowing Sierra to score a controversial goal just before time expired in the first half. Brumet's first goal came in just the 3rd minute of play after sophomore Hannah O'Donnell dribbled around a defender on the right wing, then crossed to the waiting Brumet for the goal. With a 2-1 halftime lead, the Falcon defense shut down the Wolverines over the final 45 minutes to earn the win. The match was the final regular-season home game for the 10 Falcon sophomores, each of whom received a bouquet and a brief recap of their career at FLC in front of the home crowd.
With the victory, the Falcons improved to 9-3-3 in Big 8 Conference play and 14-3-3 overall. They will conclude their regular season at Sacramento City College on Thursday night at 6:00 pm. The CCCAA state playoffs are scheduled to begin on Saturday, November 19 with the Falcons expecting to host a first-round match.
