The Sacramento State women’s soccer team scored three goals in a 10 minute span and defeated the University of Nevada 3-2 on Friday, Sept. 7.

The Hornets (1-5-1) split a pair of home games this weekend and collected their first win of the year on Friday over Nevada, and then fell to California State University, Northridge 2-1 in overtime on Sunday.

Sac State started the scoring on a penalty kick in the 40th minute and sophomore forward Tiffany Miras capitalized on the opportunity giving the Hornets a 1-0 lead.

A few minutes later, freshman midfielder Camila Fonseca scored again for Sac State to take a 2-0 lead in the 43rd minute and led by a pair of goals at halftime.

The Hornets continued to attack the goal early in the second half and it resulted in sophomore forward Ariana Nino scoring from 30-yards out to give the Hornets a 3-0 lead in the 50th minute.

The Wolf Packs of University of Nevada scored two goals in the 54th and 62nd minute to cut Sac State’s lead to one goal.

“We had our best possession game that we’ve had all year,” said Sac State head coach Randy Dedini. “We tried to not force anything.”

The Hornets came out the first half dominating possession of the ballgame, and in the second half, the momentum would go on the shift as the Wolf Packs increased the pressure.

“We ended up allowing one of the goals, because we ended up forcing a ball when there wasn’t anything there,” Dedini said.

Sac State’s captain and defender, Mikayla Reed, was the driving force of the Hornets back line, according to Dedini, that would go to allow the Hornets to hold onto their lead to win the game.

“I liked our transition from defense to offense and felt that it was a lot faster this game,” Reed said. “That’s why we were able to score more goals this game than the others. We should’ve been a little more gritty and not have given up those two goals. We need to be more patient, hold on to the ball, and try not to give up a lead.”

Dedini said he would like his team to learn how to play with a lead better.

“We almost gave up a 3-0 lead,” Dedini said. “We can’t have that.”

Against Northridge, the Hornets scored in the ninth minute on a goal by sophomore forward Kylee Kim-Bustillos and held the lead until the 42nd minute, when the Matadors tied up the game. The game remained knotted up until overtime when Sac State allowed a goal in the 93rd minute, which secured the win for Northridge.

The Hornets next game is Sunday against at noon at the University of San Francisco.
