The Pima Community College women's soccer team struck first but fell behind in the first half in the NJCAA Region I, Division I semifinals on Wednesday in Scottsdale. The Aztecs couldn't come back after falling 4-2 to Scottsdale Community College.
The No. 3-seeded Aztecs scored early when Kathy Fisher put the ball in goal in the 6th minute after an assist by Ivonne Herrera. Scottsdale came back and tied the game right away, also in the 6th minute. Pima gave up three more goals to Scottsdale, the No. 2 seed, in the first half and trailed 4-1 at halftime.
The Aztecs held Scottsdale scoreless in the second half. Kalle Smith scored Pima's second goal of the game in the 89th off a rebound at the net.
Pima finished with 15 shots at the goal and Erika Heredia finished with nine saves.
The Aztecs had three sophomores on its squad this year (Heredia, Herrera and Linda Contreras) and the rest were freshman.
"I'm proud of what this team accomplished this year," Pima coach Kendra Veliz said. "We have a quality group to build on for next season."
And elsewhere in the Valley...
The other spot in the final will be taken by Paradise Valley Community College. The Pumas beat Phoenix College 3-1 on the strength of a goal and two assists by regional leading scorer Ali Doller. Her goal brings her total to 27 for the year.
