Lady Argos: Unstoppable

The Notre Dame De Namur women’s soccer team’s season is now underway. Currently the Lady Argos are 2-0 with wins coming against Cal State Monterey Bay and Cal State East Bay. The Lady Argos have several new pieces to their team along with some key returners. Seniors Jessica Santos and Rebecca Yim look to lead their team to a lot more victories this year.

In their first game, the Argos played against Cal State Monterey Bay. Within the first half the game was extremely close with only a few shots on goal but no goals scored. The second half was a whole different story; CSUMB got on the board scoring their first goal of the game.

10 minutes later CSUMB scored their second goal. However, the Lady Argos turned around quickly scoring 3 goals to finish the game with a victory. First goal was scored by senior Bianca Lemus followed by Monica Barrios; with the game-winning goal coming from senior Massiel Castellanos.

When asked about the game Santos confidently stated, “ We played really good. I thought we played hard and played as a team and that’s why we were able to come back and get the win.”

NDNU’s second game against CSUEB wasn’t as high scoring as the first. The first half was scoreless until late when Senior Rebecca Yim sunk a free kick from 35 feet out putting the Lady Argos up 1-0 to close the half. The second half was all about freshman goalkeeper Abigail Cebrero making incredible save after save. She finished the game with 10 saves earning her 1st career shutout.

The Lady Argos take their 2-0 records up to Washington this weekend playing Seattle Pacific University on Saturday September 13th and then Western Washington University on Monday September 15th.
