Women’s soccer

Cañada 4, Yuba College 1

The college community rallied around the 17th-seeded Yuba College women’s soccer team Thursday prior to its trip to Redwood City to take on No. 16 Cañada in a play-in match of the 2021 California Community College Athletic Association Northern California Regional.

Yuba College President Dr. Tawny Dotson visited the team prior to the trip to wish the players well in their voyage, head coach Cristina Baggio said. 

While the outcome did not turn out in Yuba’s favor, falling  4-1 to Cañada, Baggio said this year was all about experience for her 13 freshmen athletes coming back next year. 

“It was a good experience for our freshmen,” Baggio said. 

Yuba (14-8) trailed 3-0 at the break and 4-0 early in the second half before finally scoring courtesy of a Cañada own goal in the 49ers’ attacking third area of the field. 

Baggio said Yuba was attempting a corner kick and the ball ricocheted off a Cañada player’s head into the goal.

It’s credited in the book as an own goal, Baggio said. 

Yuba goalkeeper Yaly Hughes made at least six saves and midfielder Valeria Contreras was selected as Player of the Game in defeat, Baggio said.
