After months of training and uncertainty amid the Coronavirus, the much anticipated season started well for the Marauders. AVC jumped out to an early lead when James scored off an assist from Kelsey Brustuen in the opening minutes.
Bianca Carrillo added an unassisted goal in the twenty-sixth minute. She totaled six attempts on the day.
Cassi James came back to score her second goal of the game at the 66:05 mark. James finished with four total attempts. Both James and Carrillo had three shots on goal. Brenda Murillo (3, 1 on goal), Kelsey Brustuen (3, 1 on goal), Alexsandra Castellanos (1), Lourdes Teodores, (1), Quehtzali Ayala, (1), and Anaya Respeto (1 on goal) each had attempts.
The Marauders dominated the action by keeping a majority of the play on the Ram's half of the field. They totaled 10 shots on goal and 21 attempts overall, while their defense prevented Victor Valley from advancing.
AVC will travel to battle Chaffey College on Tuesday before returning home to face LA Pierce on September 3rd.
