Shifting gears

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar
 

With the regular season behind them and postseason brackets set, the two local soccer participants are spending the week readying themselves for knockout-style competition.

The No. 4 Oxnard College men's soccer team (14-2-4) is expecting an athletic, physical and organized opponent when it hosts No. 13 Orange Coast (11-5-4) in Saturday's regional quarterfinals at 2 p.m.

"They won't be easy to break down," Oxnard coach Ross Greaney said. "We'll have to be patient. We have to just manage the game well."

Until No. 10 Citrus (15-2-3) arrives at the VC Sportsplex on Saturday at 1 p.m., the No. 7 Ventura College women's soccer team (14-5-1) will bracing itself for striker Jasmine Williams, who has a school-record 17 goals and 10 assists for the Owls this fall.

"The playoffs is all about that one game," Ventura coach Steve Hoffman said. "Can we shut down their one star?"

When the fields were announced Tuesday, Oxnard avoided three-time defending state champion Mount San Antonio, who eliminated the Condors the last two seasons. Ventura's path to the Final Four, most likely, could include rematches with No. 2 Canyons, No. 3 Cerritos or No. 6 Cypress, three of the teams to beat the Pirates this season.

VC softball ready for "special" weekend

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar
 

After 23 years at Ventura College, Susan Johnson will finally coach her softball team in a home playoff game this weekend.

Which means there's only one word to describe No. 7 Ventura (32-7) and its best-of-three first-round series with No. 10 Glendale (27-13).

"Special," Johnson said.

Game 1 is Saturday at 2 p.m. Game 2 is Sunday at 10 a.m. with a decisive Game 3 to follow if necessary.

For decades the Pirates, which won their 10th Western State Conference title this season, have had to go on the road south or east to four-team regionals hosted by state powers.

"We've been a No. 5, we've been a No. 7," Johnson said. "We always had good teams."

Cost containment necessitated a new format in 2007, which introduced a first-round series to halve the field before regional play.

After being paired with top seed Riverside and defending state champion Mount San Antonio in recent years, VC has taken advantage of the new format this year with its winningest team since 2002.

Sophomore ace Teresa Lemos is 26-6 with a 1.30 ERA and 175 strikeouts in 199 innings. The Rio Mesa High product is also hitting .403 with a state-leading 11 triples. She's surrounded in the order with other weapons, like slugger Clarissa Samaniego, who's hitting .449 with eight doubles, four triples and four home runs in her past four games; shortstop Raelene Moreno, who's hitting .430 with 11 doubles and six home runs; and third baseman Candice Garcia, who's hitting .411 with seven doubles, nine triples and four home runs.

Ventura, which has won seven of its last eight games and built a 14-game winning streak in March, is hitting .339 as a team and averages 7.0 runs per game.

The hope is the sluggers will feel at home this weekend.

"This is huge for us," Johnson said. "We have good gap power. It's very significant playing here."

"We know how to play on our field," said Samaniego. "Our singles become doubles. Our doubles become triples. ... This is where we work hard every day."

It was pitching that lifted the Pirates over Glendale, 2-0, on Jan. 28, as Lemos threw a five-hit shutout.

"It was only our second game," said Johnson. "We were a different team. I'm sure they have improved as well."

Ventura has an opportunity for its first postseason wins since 2005, when it upset regional host Cerritos and played Fullerton for a berth in the state tournament.

"I just hope we have two good games," Johnson said. "We're proud of what we've done this year."

Moorpark volleyball to face defending champs in playoffs

The Moorpark College men's volleyball team will travel to Orange County Tuesday for the state quarterfinals.

Moorpark (11-6) will face Irvine Valley (11-7) at 6 p.m. in a matchup of the last two state champions. It is also a rematch of last year's state quarterfinal at Raider Pavilion, which Irvine Valley won on its way to the title.

Moorpark finished the regular season with three straight three-game sweeps, including a second win over No. 1 Long Beach City, to clinch a postseason berth. Moorpark also swept Irvine Valley in February.

The playoff fields have been paired down to the Great Eight and every game tonight has a trip to the state Final Four next weekend at Consumnes River College in Sacramento riding on it.

The Pirates welcome Foothill Conference champion San Bernardino Valley (28-3) to the VC Athletic Event Center tonight having won 22 straight games, including two tight, physical, dramatic games against the Wolverines Dec. 10 (53-45) and Dec. 30 (49-46).

The road warriors known as the Ventura College men's basketball team are set for a regional semifinal at No. 4 San Bernardino Valley, the Foothill Conference champion.

At the VC Athletic Event Center, the biggest question will be the health of the state co-Player of the Year, Ventura center Destinee LaFountain, who has not practiced this week after sustaining an arm injury in the Pirates' win Saturday over Pasadena City College.

Former LaReina High legend Margaret Mohr brings her No. 10 Cypress College women's basketball team to Ventura for the third straight season to visit the second-seeded Pirates.

VC women to host old foe Pasadena City

The second-seeded Ventura College women's basketball team (29-1) will host No. 15 Pasadena City (17-12) in the Southern California regional quarterfinals Saturday at 7 p.m.

Freshman guard Stella Ghazarian hit a 3-pointer with 12.7 seconds to play as Pasadena City came from 26 points down to knock off No. 18 Antelope Valley, 67-65, Wednesday night in the first round.

Ghazarian had 27 points, including seven 3-pointers, as the Lancers incredibly won their 17th straight playoff game at Hutto-Patterson Gymnasium despite falling behind 28-2 to start the game.

Pasadena has eliminated Ventura from the postseason in three of the last five years, 2007, 2009 and last spring, when Anna Shahinian's decisive 3-pointer with 33 seconds to play was allowed to stand, despite being released after the shot clock had expired.
