Last weekend the Coyotes women’s soccer split their final two games of the season.
The Coyotes started their streak on Thursday Oct. 29, when they played in a brutal game against the Somona State Seawolves.
The game immediately started with fouls from both the Coyotes and the Seawolves, following with two offsides against the Seawolves.
Wasting no time, the Seawolves started the intensity against the Coyotes with a shot made by player Mckenzie Maher, then two minutes later, another one by Marissa Marable.
Three more fouls were made by the Seawolves, along with a yellow card against player Cecilia Sifuentes for grabbing Coyote player Gabby Evaristo.
As the game continued, Seawolves player Sifuentes was back in. She was able to bring the ball down to midfield and shoot from 15 yards out and score with the help of teammate Sara Van Wagoner.
The intensity of the game pushed the Coyotes into attempting more shots, and also receiving a yellow card.
During the second half of the game in the 88th minute, another yellow card was brought against Seawolves player Kristal Luna.
The game ended with the Coyotes at a loss, 1-0 Seawolves.
On Saturday Oct. 31, the Coyotes made up for their previous loss by defeating the Humboldt State Lumberjacks, with a score of 2-1.
Three minutes into the game there was a corner kick by Coyotes player, Nicki Argentieri, immediately following with two shots made by Ebony Squier. The first half totaled in ten shots made by the Coyotes.
After an offside against the Lumberjacks another shot was made by Amanda Lopez.
The game continued with a back and forth battle between the Coyotes and the Lumberjacks.
With only having made one corner kick in the game, the Lumberjacks scored against the Coyotes.
Lumberjack Bridget Daley was able to pass the ball from left to right, to player Emily Huska, and scored from the right side.
The first half left the Coyotes on edge and ready to bring up the heat.
Starting off the second half the Coyotes received a yellow card, however they did not let that bring them down.
The Coyotes continued to play hard and made three more shots. Melanie Aguayo shot at the goal, but the play was blocked by the Lumberjacks.
As the second half was coming towards an end, the Lumberjacks worked relentlessly but could not get any shots. They ended up up receiving four more fouls, and a yellow card.
Eight minutes later Lumberjacks player Jillian Anderson received a red card for foul play.
Coyotes continued their winning score with a goal made by Paige Kang, as it was her first goal for the season. She was able to score with a free kick.
Finally, 65 minutes into the game, Aguayo shot from the left side 25 yards out and scored.
The Coyotes never stopped fighting and made five more shots, down to the very last minute of the game.
The Coyotes won the game with a score of 2-1.
The Coyotes ended their season with five wins, 10 losses and three ties.
