Any worries that Pima Community College's women's soccer team would be unable to continue their winning streak into September were ended when the team made a mockery of South Mountain's back line and won 10-1 at Aztec Field on Saturday.
Freshman Kathy Fisher, who last scored in the team's debut against Glendale, made the first entry in the Aztec's ledger in the ninth minute. She scored one more in the 22nd minute.
It was in the second half where the team opened up. Cholla graduate Daisy Gallardo earned a brace, and teammates Ashley Estrada, Robyn Tollin, Ivonne Herrera and Camie Barbera each scored a goal.
The second half presented an opportunity for backup goalkeeper Salina Joos to earn some playing time. She is credited with two saves in her 45 minutes on the field.
The Aztecs' next match will be against Gateway Community College at the Rose Mofford Complex in Phoenix on the Sept. 8.
Barbera scores again
Ironwood Ridge graduate Camie Barbera scored on Saturday bringing her total for six this season. An impressive number given that the team has only played four games. The scoring streak is even more remarkable because she took a year off from playing in her final year of high school
"I've been blessed with a good ability," Barbera said earlier this week at training.
"We're doing a lot of training that's gotten me back into the soccer shape I need," she said. "To come back and play at this level, it's cool to train and get all my touches back."

"I think I thrive in pressure situations," she said. "I'm marked every game, usually on corners I'm doubled."
Even though she's getting marked, she's still a freshman and other teams may not know how dangerous she is yet.
"Word hasn't gotten out quite yet," she joked. "Keep it hushed up."
We'll see what we can do.
