Stagg (6-10-1, 2-2 TCAL) scored the only goal of the game in the 14th minute with a breakaway up the middle resulting in a shot to the left side of the net.

West (3-7, 2-3 TCAL) responded with its own charges at the goal, with junior forward Colleen Burkhart getting the best chance with a one-on-one shot against the Stagg goal keeper, only to have the shot deflect off the right post.

West again put pressure on Stagg at the end of the second half, only to be turned away by the Delta Queens defense.

“We were up there a lot, but we couldn’t finish,” coach Abel Dorado said.

Senior midfielder Estefani Gomez said the Wolf Pack still has a chance to make a comeback in the second half of the TCAL season.

“I have a lot of faith in our team,” she said. “We’ll see them (Stagg) again, and we’ll definitely dominate.”
