Lompoc 1, Santa Barbara 0
The lone goal came on a penalty kick by Amy Bommersbach in the Braves' win.
"It was a weird match. The wind was pushing pretty good from the west, so the team playing with the wind definitely had a noticeable advantage," said Lompoc coach Jason Cochrane. "Our goal came in the first half when Ayziah Simmons was taken down in the box."
Cochrane said the Braves had established a good possession game, and were applying pressure that was keeping the ball playing in their half most of the first 40 minutes.
"At the half, Santa Barbara had the wind at their backs and we found ourselves playing on our heels a lot. Possession was tougher to come by as the match went on due to physicality, but our players hung tough."
The Braves start four freshmen on their squad.
"(They) are progressing just as we hoped, and are making big plays in big games," Cochrane added. "Clean sheets are always great, and our defense played a massive part in that."
