The Shasta College women's soccer team split in the opening week of the season by beating Sacramento City College 5-1 before losing 11-1 to San Joaquin Delta.
In the victory, Aspen Smith scored in the fifth minute and Olivia Smith scored two first-half goals to lead the way. Shasta kept the pressure on in the beginning of the second half by successfully capitalizing on a penalty kick by Madisun Allen. Paige Reed put the game completely out or reach at 5-0 with a goal in the 51st minute.
"This was a real good way to start our season," Shasta head coach Dan Fults said, adding him and coach Steve Hofferber both believe that this hard-working squad will continue improving and build upon last year's 12-6-1 season.
Against Delta, Shasta surrendered six first-half goals and Sather had 12 saves. Daisy Contreras scored four goals for Delta.
Shasta (1-1) plays twice on the road this week at Sierra College on Tuesday and at American River College on Friday.
