GROSSMONT COLLEGE — With another win on Sept. 28, the Grossmont Women’s soccer team is undefeated in conference play as it beat the Palomar Comets, 4-1.

The Griffins began the game attacking with an immediate goal in the 3rd minute to give them a comfortable 1-0 lead early in the half. Elisa Maganuco took a long ball down the sideline and sent a cross on the ground for Annie Roberts to put the ball in the back of the net.

Moments later, in the 15th minute, Ashley Schramm extended the lead after receiving a perfect pass from Roberts. It was a clinical finish as Schramm was able to bury it in the side netting of the goal. The goals didn’t end there though, Maganuco broke free from her defender and finished the play perfectly with a goal of her own in the 38th minute.

GROSSMONT COLLEGE — The Grossmont Women’s Soccer team has  advanced its record to 3-0 in the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference while honoring its coach with the 2010 PCAC women’s coach of the year award.
Howard Hawver coached the Griffins Women’s soccer team for 15 years up until he was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease in 2008, forcing a leave of absence for this season. The PCAC Coach of the year award is annually awarded to one women’s coach and one men’s coach.

During his years of coaching, he’s led the Griffins to 12 different playoffs and of those has won 5 conference  championships.


On Tuesday, Sept. 21, the Griffins came out very strong in the opening minutes of the match providing their fans with the excitement of multiple shots on goal. After a cross came from the right side of the field, it was connected with a header to only find the right post. Moments later, the ball didn’t neglect the left post as it hit that side as well.
After three shots on goal and on target, freshman Janeth Bahena, #17 , finally found the back of the net in the 8th minute of the half. Thereafter, the goals began to pour in.

A tie and a loss for women’s soccer team

GROSSMONT COLLEGE, Sept. 1–The Grossmont  College women’s soccer team began its 2010 season with two nonconference road games, returning home with a tie and a loss.

The Lady Griffins  tied Golden West 2-2 on August 27, but  lost on August 31 to El Camino 0-1 when they gave up a last-minute goal.

Grossmont’s pair of goals in the first game came from forwards Ashley Schramm and Elisa Maganuco. Maganuco assisted on Schramm’s goal in the 25th minute; Schramm returned the favor for Maganuco’s 84th minute score. However, Golden West struck back twice in the time between Grossmont’s goals.

Head coach Dave Ridenour was able to find “a lot of positives” in the Golden West game, “considering it was our first time on the field and we learned a lot from each other.”   The Grossmont lineup is loaded with freshmen, with only four players returning from last year’s 8-9-1 squad.

Ridenour said Grossmont showed significant improvement in the second game “against a much better opponent.” But Grossmont‘s three shots on goal were unable to get past star El Camino goalkeeper Alicia Sala.  Hopes of salvaging a scoreless tie vanished when El Camino put together an extended passing sequence in the 85th minute that resulted in a goal by Venessa Reid.

The team’s home opener is this Friday, September 3, at 3 p.m against Chaffey (who, incidentally, beat El Camino this season).  The first Pacific Coast Conference game will be at Cuyamaca on September 14. Grossmont will host its first conference game against Mira Costa at 1:00 p.m  on September 21.
