Two freshmen from Redlands and one from Yucaipa helped Mt. San Jacinto College women's soccer defeat visiting Southwestern of Chula Vista on Tuesday in Menifee, the Eagles head coach said.
Striker Kriston Hilkey and midfielder Kirsten Montgomery, first-year prospects from Redlands High, and midfielder Lizeth Mendez of Yucaipa High featured in Mt. San Jacinto's 3-1 victory, and the Eagles improved to 5-0 so far this season.
Southwestern came into the Sept. 11 match undefeated at 3-0-1, Eagles coach Chauncey Hayes said.
Denise Aguilar and Jamie Ayala, both graduates of West Valley High, scored one goal apiece for Mt. San Jacinto, Hayes said.
Hilkey and Montgomery both started, and Hilkey scored in the second half assisted by Montgomery. Hilkey also received a yellow card late in the match, Hayes said.
Eagles goalkeeper Taylor Wolf of Chapparal High in Temecula made eight saves, Hayes said.
