Welcome to Pierce College soccer
Yet again another amazing season has concluded for our Lady Brahmas and what a successful one it's been! When their journey began months ago, who would have thought that they would have finished with an overall record of 13-6-4 and earning yet again another berth to the CCCAA Southern Region Playoffs. This accomplishment makes Pierce College the only college in the state to make playoffs every year since its inception.
Pierce opened the first round of playoffs at home by hosting #18 seed Grossmont College (13-6-3) and after 90 hard fought minutes the Lady Brahmas defeated Grossmont by the score of 3-1. In the next round, the Lady Brahmas would go on the road to take on #2 College of the Canyons (17-2). After all was done Pierce College defeated Canyons to eliminate their playoff aspirations. The Lady Brahmas magical season would continue and once again go on the road and travel to take on #7 San Bernardino Valley College (18-1-2). After competing for 90 minutes the magical season finally came to an end in defeat as they fell short to San Bernardino Valley College.
Pierce was led by the fantastic play of a group of sophomores that anchored the team at its core and leaves us with great production and prestige. Ashley Oviedo (Granada Hills Charter HS) followed up her impressive 2016 season with a stellar 2017 season with 5 goals and 4 assists, which earned her 1st Team All Western State South Conference. She leaves the program with 9 and 9 assists for her career at Pierce and earned Brahma of the Year. Tylee Low (Kennedy HS) set the tone in the attack as she finished tied for third in total points, 14, with 5 goals and 4 assists her output earned her Pierce College Most Improved Player honors and 2nd Team All Western State South Conference. The talented and steady defending of Destiny Brandstetter (Glendale HS) cannot go overlooked as she helped contribute 4 goal during the season to go along with constantly defending the opposing best defender and shutting them down. Her efforts earned her Honorable Mention Western State South Conference. Nichole Evans (Concordia HS) showed great tenacity and determination as she played part of a defensive unit that was tops in the conference. Anchoring the net was Brianna Jacobo (Granada Hills Charter HS) she leaves the program as one of the winningest goalkeeper in Pierce College history and earned 2nd Team All Western State South Conference.
As impactful as the sophomores were, they couldn't have done it without the play of the very talented freshmen class. Gisell Cruz (Van Nuys HS) lead this group with 14 goals and 8 assist, these impressive numbers tallied up a total of 36 point which was best in the conference. This earned her 1st Team All Western State South Conference honors and Pierce College Offensive MVP and Pierce College Most Valuable Player award.
Cruz success couldn't have happened without the contribution of freshman sensation Jennifer Veliz (Taft HS). Veliz was an impactful and smart player that covered the middle of the field. She used intelligence to total 8 goals and 7 assist for 23 points, this earned her 1st Team All Western State South Conference. Roaming the middle of the field with Veliz was the extraordinary play of Esmeralda Guzman (Birmingham HS), Guzman used silky individual moves and precise passing to accumulate 3 goals 6 assist for a total of 12 points and earn 2nd Team All Western State South Conference honors.
Another freshman sensation was Kerian Neal ( El Camino Real HS) she was the leader of the defensive unit that was one of the best in the conference. She led the conference in assist with 9 and she added 1 goal to give her 11 total points. This production led her to earn All Western State South Conference honors, Pierce Defensive MVP and Pierce College Most Valuable Player award. Fellow freshman Layla Bravo (Fulton College Prep HS) also played a major role in the Lady Brahmas season and earned Honorable Mention All Western State South Conference selections, for her extraordinary play throughout the season.
Together everyone achieves more and without the exceptional contributions of everyone on the team we couldn't have achieved great success this season. Every single one of you has made an impact, on and off the field and on to this program, and that we thank for your sacrifice and dedication. Players such as Adriana Sosa, Katherine Castillo and Leslie Jolon you were as much part of the team as the rest. Even though you experienced a small set back with your season ending injuries. You all will collectively play a major part in the structure and building of this team in the next years. So keep your spirits up and come back to us stronger than ever. Freshman like, Irene Reyes, Diana Salonga, Marleny Rodriguez ,Daisy Armienta, Jocelyn Ramos, Valerie Ascencio you make the future look bright for our program.
