Santa Ana lost its second home conference game Tuesday against Cypress College 3-0.
“We struggled but took some chances and made the game easier than it was,” Chargers Head Coach Erick Hurtarte said.
The Chargers scored first when forward Jade Perez netted a rebound shot in the 16th minute from midfielder Layla Silva. Cypress midfielder Laura Najera scored the second goal and Silva added a third.
As a team, Santa Ana College managed only four shots on goal despite controlling the ball for most of the game. Goalkeeper Teresa Pintor made five saves on eight attempts.
“The ladies played more together than before. Now we just need the goals to happen,” SAC Head Coach Jaymie Baquero said.
The (1-5) Dons play at home Tuesday at 3 p.m. versus the (2-5) Norco College Mustangs.
