Women's Soccer

2017 Tryouts are upon us:

 
In order to become a Pirate soccer player you must enroll in the summer training and conditioning program, section 2479.  Training begins July 17, 2017.
 

 

Former Pirates Yaritza Arista and Jamie Becerra, currently San Jose Spartans earn lots of minutes versus UC Berkeley (3/12/17)

 sj state reunited

Another Pirate becomes a San Jose State Spartan:

Jamie Becerra is the second Pirate in as many seasons to be recruited by the San Jose State Spartans.  She will play along fellow Pirate alum, Yaritza Arista.  Jamie was a first team All-America selection this season, and was picked up by the Spartans after one semester at MJC. "It's difficult to leave in one semester, but Jamie was a qualifier out of high school, giving her the opportunity to leave if she had a great season.  Jamie was so impressive, that San Jose scooped her up before we hit mid September.  It will be exciting to watch two MJC Pirates play together next year for the Spartans.  She has already left our program and is training with them so she can get a jump on the fall season", head coach Steve Aristotelous.

Viss to Sonoma State:  The 24th ranked team in Division II, Sonoma State Seawolves landed an athletic goal scorer in Jenna Viss.  "Emiria (head coach) runs a fantastic program, all of her teams work hard and are winners.  Jenna will be a great addition, and will thrive under her tutelage.  She has grown tremendously here, and will continue to grow as a person and soccer player at Sonoma.  Their program is renown for their high work rate and intensity, we are confident that Jenna will adapt seamlessly to the next chapter of her education and soccer career."

MJC Advance to State Final Four 

The Pirates couldn't have picked a better time to find their first win ever at Santa Rosa Junior College.  After years of trying to find a road win, MJC broke the streak and at the same time landed themselves in the California State Final Four.  Tyler Fenton scored ten minutes into the match after receiving a pass from Andrea Zaragoza.  The 1-0 margin carried into the half, then the #1 seed Bear Cubs woke up and started to pound the Pirates for the first fifteen minutes of the second half. "I was concerned because we lost our fight, we played so well the first half and just came out flat", Steve Aristotelous.  Shortly after the onslaught, the Pirates countered and Maddy Adams found Yaritza Arista who blasted the ball into the net.  With twenty minutes left, the Bear Cubs answered, but the Pirates were able to thwart the comeback, handing Santa Rosa their first loss of the season and landing MJC into the next round where the find another tough task versus one loss Rio Honda of Whittier.  "I am confident in our teams ability to compete with anyone.  They have evolved from a team that plays "with" each other to a team that plays "for" each other.  That attitude can bring MJC a state championship."

Last year the Pirates won a thriller in the 120th minute as Jazlynn Satkamp calmly placed a penalty kick into the side net.  This year the Pirates won in regulation with a pair of goals from Jenna Viss and a pair of assists from Yaritza Arista in the second half advancing the Pirates to their second straight elite 8 by the score of 2-0.  "I thought we played very well today.  When we decide to play for 90 minutes, I like our chances versus any opponent", Steve Aristotelous.  Next up are the number one seed Santa Rosa Bear Cubs.  Santa Rosa narrowly escaped Evergreen College after scoring a goal in the 117th minute, to tie the match, eventually defeating Evergreen in penalties.

Jenna Viss tallied a hat trick, Yaritza Arista scored twice, and Harleen Pabla scored on the afternoon.  Assists went to Viss, Arista, Jessica Jauregui, Stephanie Gonzalez, and Andrea Zaragoza with two in the match.  MJC faces SF CIty College, Tuesday, November 24, at 2:00 p.m.  SF City College is a playoff veteran along with the Pirates which should mean an entertaining match for the fans.  Other than Folsom College (third year program) the rest of the teams have experienced second round action.  "Winning in the playoffs is an absolute measuring stick when defining a program.  Of course doing well in the regular season is nice, but the post season is why everyone competes.  Fortunately, we have had a long tradition of advancing not only into the second round, but rounds beyond that as well.  It's important for a program and it's athletes to experience winning in the post season and we do that at MJC.  Each round gets a little more challenging and we are playing a team that will be up for a big match, but it just makes the competition that much more exciting.  There are only eight teams left in all of Northern California and I am proud that this team has earned the opportunity to be one of them", Steve Aristotelous  

Other second round matches include: Fresno vs. Taft, Santa Rosa vs. Evergreen, Folsom Lake vs Cosumnes River College

Pirates survive long weekend, defeats Feather River College 1-0

Less than 24 hours after defeating Ohlone College, the Pirates took the field and faced Golden Valley Conference Champions, Feather River College.  Harleen Pabla scored the lone goal of the match off of an assist from Andrea Zaragoza.  "I don't like playing three matches in a week, but I don't want to pass on the opportunity of playing quality opponents.  Fortunately, we came out on the good side of both matches, and we have some time to recover before league", Steve Arisotelous. Goalkeepers  Ashley Almeidea, Logan Larossa, along with defenders Erika Steele, Jazlynn Satkamp, Marissa Carillo, Lexi Halsey, and Harleen Pabla, have all been major contributors for the Pirates third straight shutout.

http://www.nscaa.com/rankings/4167/JuniorCollegeDivisionIII/women/PreseasonPoll

MJC has been announced as one of the top teams in the nation.  During the past 14 years Modesto has finished ranked nationally five times and this team will set their sites to be number six.  There is no rest for the Pirates this season, as they will open up their season at #2 Fresno City.  The Rams have not lost a regular season home match in two years and at one time were Modesto's biggest rival when they both competed in the CVC.  Modesto's last season in the CVC was in 2006 and claimed the championship before moving into the Big 8.  Since that time the Rams have one the conference every single season. Other notable Big 8 teams that are nationally ranked are Cosumnes River College and Sierra College, cut and paste link above to have a look at the list.

Tennessee Tech press release below:

Jaimee Rocha and Marissa Rouse head to Tech after the pair enjoyed tremendous success at one of the top junior colleges in the nation while at Modesto Junior College in central California. This past year as sophomores, the talented tandem helped lead MJC to a school record 20 wins en route to a Big 8 conference championship, finishing the year in the top ten in the nation for junior colleges.

"I think when you look at Jaimee and Marissa, they played two years with one of the best junior college teams in California and went up against a number of highly competitive and skilled teams," Springthorpe noted on the incoming juniors. "They have collegiate experience and are older and more mature in the game than a true freshman. They have played collegiate level games and it shows in practice. They know what to expect in the weight room and on the training field." 

 

 

 

Recognition and awards arrive into the New Year

Yaritza Arista was already named Big 8 MVP, she can now add Second Team All-American to her resume.  Arista was one of 24 woman across the country named to the All-American Teams.  "What a tremendous honor, and she deserves the honor, she is a fantastic soccer player," Steve Aristotelous.  Arista led the conference in goals and points in the Big, and was unanimously voted MVP of the league.

MJC season ends in double overtime, season in review, farewell to sophomore class

For a third straight match, the lady Pirates found themselves in an overtime match that ultimately was settled before dreaded penalty kicks.  In the 108th minute on a set piece the CRC Hawks converted it ending the Pirates season.  "Only one team out of thirty-two in the playoffs end the season happy, the post season is a tough animal, scouting reports and familiarity of opponents runs rampant; usually all of these matches are settled by a goal.  At this point, I would like to talk about the records and high bar that has been set by this 2014 group.  They are the first team to ever win a Big 8 Championship; their banner will soon be hanging in the gym.  They hold the school record for longest streak without a defeat (14), they hold the school record for most wins in a season (20), and they hold the school record for best winning percentage (.875).  When you are in the middle of a match or at a training session, it's hard as a coach to collect my thoughts and tell them how proud I am of all of them and how I think of them as my family during the fall.  My sophomores are now leaving the program, and I hope they all finish their educations and do great things with their lives." Steve Aristotelous

gabby A

Gabby Acosta--Met Gabby when she was in the 6th grade after her club coach contacted me to help train the team.  A few years later she joined my club team and now is finishing at MJC.  Gabby is the longest tenured player I have ever coached (9 years).  She is always smiling and I am very thankful for all the years we have had together.

elizabeth A

Elizabeth Amaya--I first saw Liz play at Central Valley High School.  Their team was in need of a goalie and she converted to position as a senior.  She came in and red-shirted and worked on her hands through indoor soccer.  She started for us in the 2012 season, then returned to help guide us to the Big 8 Title with a big game for us at Sierra.

Erica D

Erica Da Silva--The third sister to play at MJC.  Erica is one of my favorite players to ever come through the program, her laughter and smile at practice is infectious, she is a genuine person who loves her teammates, and I will miss not having her out there bringing her positive energy.  I will hear her laugh out on that field for the rest of my time at MJC.

gabby J

Gabby Juarez--A quiet unassuming kid that I found in the indoor soccer league (thanks to a few of the men's soccer players).  Gabby moved here from down south and played for the Legends soccer club (high end team).  She has been our lock down left back for the past two seasons.

Danielle N

Danielle Nava--Always been a defender before arriving to MJC, but I couldn't pass up the speed to use up front.  She strikes fear in defenses with her track like running abilities, and commanded the respect of teams to cheat to her side.

jaimee R

 Jaimee Rocha--A natural soccer player, I wish I would've found her when she was younger to help my club team.  Discovered her at a Hilmar High soccer match, her defensive grittiness and off season conditioning (running/lifting) has made her a division 1 recruit.

marissa R

Marissa Rouse--"Rouse" has been with me since her sophomore year of high school.  Like Gabby, we have been through a lot soccer together.  She is very dedicated (off-season training) to get into the soccer shape needed to compete at a high level.  She along with Rocha will probably head out of state together to play D1.

allie S

Allie Steele--Located Allie at the Pitman tournament where she demonstrated a fearlessness as a forward.  My fondest memory of Allie was scoring the game winning goal against Delta last season then Gabby Acosta jumping in her arms celebrating the moment.  Hardworking, very bright, and just a positive person, she will be missed.

keisha W

Keisha Watson--Versatile athlete played both offense and defense for us, helped us tremendously in both positions getting us through the Mendocino match.  She spent a lot of time in the weight room both seasons after suffering knee injuries as a youth.  Understandably skeptical about returning to soccer, she has been a two-year contributor.  I am glad she decided to play.

 

Haley Smithers (Not pictured)---Haley gave us valuable minutes as a forward and a defender.  Like Keisha, she played several minutes in the back the last two playoff games and no goals were conceded in regulation time.  Very skilled soccer player, and a very bright girl.

 

These sophomores are leaving behind a legacy where off-season conditioning, weight training, and spring matches versus four-year schools have become a norm at MJC.  Combined with the freshman, the 20 win total they achieved this year will stand the test of time.  Well done this year ladies, you are a special group.

 

 

 

 

 

 

MJC advances to the elite 8


Three days after a last minute goal the Pirates repeated the feat scoring again in the 119th minute versus Mendocino College, Tuesday afternoon on the MJC West campus.  After a wild play in the box with the Pirates hitting the post then gathering the rebound, a hard foul was put on Harleen Pabla drawing a last minute and potential game winning penalty kick.  "As soon as I saw the signal for pk I looked to grab Jaz's attention to take it.  Jaz has been my go to girl since she was 13 years old, we have been through a lot of big matches together, she has always been clutch in big moments for her teams."  Just has she has done for years, she calmly placed the ball in a near untouchable spot, yet again pushing the Pirates into the another playoff round.  "Our defense was huge for us today, we have had some injuries and some of the girls have had to step up for the team."  The back line was a combination of Gabby Juarez, Jazlynn Satkamp, Haley Smithers, Keisha Watson, and Cassandra Arteaga.  Elizabeth Amaya had 5 saves.

MJC defeats Delta with late heroics

MJC was trying to make history by tying the school record for wins with 19 on the year.  Delta College was also trying to make history, by winning their first ever playoff game.  In the end, the 2014 women's soccer team set another historical mark by winning their 19th match of the season, while the Mustangs will still have to search for their first ever playoff win.  With the match tied 1-1, with a minute left in double overtime, Yaritza Arista served a ball across the mouth of the goal for Tyler Fenton to finish the goal and the match pushing the Pirates into the second round.  After an early second half goal by Delta, the Pirates regrouped moments later when Andrea Zaragoza found the back of the net just after entering the match.  "Dre had a great game for us today, she lit a fire under our team; a much needed fire.  The game winning goal today was big time as well.  Yari, didn't have the angle to shoot, dropped a great ball and Tyler knew she had to be on the back door, we work on it a lot at practice.  The defense also was solid, we had to make a lot of changes after we lost Moriah Martinez to an injury.  We always just stay the course and good things will happen when we do."  Steve Aristotelous.  Elizabeth Amaya had 6 saves on the afternoon.  MJC is 4-0-1 in their last five matches versus the Mustangs.

Modesto hosts Delta in first round match.

Modesto faces a familiar Big 8 opponent when Delta College comes to town Saturday, the 22nd, at 2:00 pm (Note: playoff matches are run by the CCCAA and $10.00 charge for adults, $7.00 for children/students/senior citizens).  This will be the third time the teams will have met this season, Modesto is 1-0-1 in conference play versus the Mustangs.  "Our second match, we played everyone on our roster and still earned a draw.  I was really impressed with how everyone on our side went in and gave us quality minutes.  I don't think there are a lot of teams that can go that deep into their roster and still earn a draw against a Big 8 team.  We wanted to rest some players playing them sparingly, and also give players a well deserved opportunity to play in a tough match in front of their friends and families.  We should be at full-strength for Saturday."  Steve Aristotelous

MJC DEFEATS SIERRA CLAIMS FIRST EVER BIG 8 CHAMPIONSHIP/SCHOOL RECORD FOR REGULAR SEASON WINS

 

The MJC women's soccer team became a part of the newly formed Big 8 Conference in 2007,  Prior to that MJC was in the Central Valley Conference (CVC) where they did battle for conference supremacy on a yearly basis with the Fresno City Rams.  Since 2001 the Pirates won 3 CVC titles, but elected (as a school) to move into the Big 8 where the majority of the top teams in the north participate.  Since 2007, the Santa Rosa Bear Cubs won 5 straight conference championships, with that streak coming to an end last season to the Sierra Wolverines.  As well as the 2008 MJC Pirates team did (State Final Four appearance) they still finished fourth that season in conference, but were definitely good enough to make a run at the state title (eventually loss to Cerritos 2-0 in state semis).  The 2008 team finished with an overall record of 19-5-4 which included a 13-0 start, 17 regular season wins, 19 overall wins, ranked 8th in the nation, and a team GPA of 3.03.  Yesterday (November 7, 2014) marked a historical day for the women's soccer program.  The 2014 Pirates won the first ever Big 8 Championship, set the regular season win total at 18, and still have the opportunity to further stamp their mark.  With the season winding down, the Pirates currently sit at 18-1-1.  Due to rule changes in match play (reduce match play) the 2014 team plays 21 regular season matches while teams in the past played 24 regular season matches.  "I never expected that regular season mark to fall once they reduced regular season match play to 21 games.  A team has to go virtually perfect to eclipse 17 wins, and in the Big 8 that is not an easy feat."  The record for wins in the Big 8 before this season belonged to the 2008 team who went 7-4-3.  The 2014 Pirates are now 11-1-1, another record Aristotelous thinks will stand the test of time.

At Sierra College-- Jazlynn Satkamp converted a penalty kick halfway through the first half after Danielle Nava was taken down in the box trying to finish a breakaway.  In the second half, Sierra scored a goal of their own on a set piece to even the game at the halfway point.  "Their crowd was going insane when they scored, the girls needed to stay calm and focused and not let the energy of their fans get to them, and they did a great job in doing so" said Aristotelous.  With 13 minutes to play Yaritza Arista played a through ball for Danielle Nava to run onto, she took it around the corner and then slotted the ball back across the mouth of the goal for Harleen Pabla to finish it for the Pirates.  Sierra still came back firing trying to at least pull the draw, but with four minutes left, Arista stole an errant pass beat the keeper icing the Pirates first ever conference title.  Elizabeth Amaya had a fantastic day in the goal providing 8 saves on the day.  "I am proud of the fight in this team.  Everyone on the field, the players on the sideline, families, were 100% engaged today, and I am so proud the team can bring home a Big 8 title for the school."

MJC ties longest unbeaten streak in school history

 

At Modesto---The 2008 team started off their season 13-0-0, the 2014 team just missed the best start in school history 12-0-1, but can surpass it Tuesday with a win.  However, they have tied the longest streak in school history with out a loss, thirteen straight matches.  "I didn't think about it until we got to ten, even then I knew it was going to be tough because in order to get to thirteen we had to get past three formidable league competitors: Santa Rosa, Cosumnes River, and league champions Sierra."  The Pirates got on the board twice in the first twenty minutes of the half first, when Harleen Pabla found Yaritza Arista, then Arista found Pabla, after Gabby Acosta sent a slotted ball to Arista who crossed it to Pabla.  The Wolverines fought back the second half and were able to get on the board with twenty minutes left in the match.  But with thirteen to go, Arista found Jenna Viss who put the game out of reach for the Pirates.  "It was a hard fought match, both teams wanted to win badly, you could see the Intensity on the field" Steve Aristotelous.  Elizabeth Amaya had 5 saves.

MJC women’s soccer team improved to 10-0-0 and 3-0-0 after defeating AmericanRiver in a “do-over” match 3-0. The pirates were leading AmericanRiver 2-0 last Friday, when the official decided to suspend play due to a lighting storm that potentially could hit Modesto. The match had gone 67 minutes and needs to go 70 minutes for it to be official. “It was a frustrating decision but the team sucked it up, and handled the adversity very well. Shows the character we have on this team. It’s tough playing three matches in four days, but I believe we will come out ready for Santa Rosa on Friday.” Steve Aristotelous. All three goals came in the second half, first was Tyler Fenton, followed by Andrea Zaragoza, then keshia Watson closed out the scoring. Danielle Nava and Yaritza Arista had an assist each, Elizabeth Amaya had 4 saves.
