Cochise Soccer beats Gateway

The Cochise College women’s soccer team traveled to Phoenix on Saturday to continue conference play against Gateway Community College. The Lady Apaches dominated play throughout the game with more than 30 shots. Majhu started off the scoring early in the first 3 minutes of play off of a ball played over the top of the Gateway defense and slotted just past the Gateway goalkeeper as she came out of the goal. The Apaches went into halftime with a 1-0 lead after several close shots that hit the posts.

The Apaches scored early again right after halftime. Leticia Seabra scored off an assist from fellow sophomore Anahi Hernandez in the 50th minute of the match. In the 73rd minute, sophomore Liz Botello took a foul in the 18-yard box that led to an Apache penalty kick. The shot was taken by Maria Azarias, who netted her fourth goal in two games off the PK to put the Apaches up 3-0.

Up next, the Lady Apaches will travel to Arizona Western in Yuma on Thursday, October 17. Kickoff is at 4:30 pm.
