Palomar College women’s soccer team played their third game of the season at home on Sept. 9.

The game started off 0-2. Comets were keeping Golden West away from the goal line with a strong defense that led the game to 2-2. Golden West picked up their defense and defeated Palomar 4-3.

Hector Hernandez, head coach of the women’s soccer team says that Palomar is off to a rough start with the Comets falling to Fullerton 5-2, Santa Ana 2-1, and Golden West 4-3.

The Comet’s home game against Golden West was a close win and the team is getting out of a rough start. The Comets defense trailed behind Golden West forward that left the goalie open when Golden West ran the ball past the Comets defense.
