Perfect season in CSUS soccer

November 4, 2013 

Stanislaus State's #6 Karenee Demery takes a shot on goal, but can't get this shot past Cal State Monterey's goal keeper Lily Garza during the Warriors' 2-1 double overtime win against the Otters Sunday afternoon (09-29-13) in Turlock.


TURLOCK — The California State University, Stanislaus women's soccer team did something no other Warrior team has ever done on Sunday. They completed a perfect season. No losses, no ties. Just 22 victories.

Super senior Karenee Demery score two goals as the Warriors beat CSU East Bay 4-0. That finalized the Warriors' record at 22-0-0 and marks them as the team to beat in the California Collegiate Athletic Association championships this weekend.

Perhaps it's time to consider some of the Warriors' accomplishments:

• They completed the first unbeaten, untied CCAA season in 15 years, matching the record set by Sonoma State in 1998.

• They gave head coach Gabriel Bolton his 100th career victory.

• They scored 47 goals this season — breaking the record they set last year. They also have 50 assists and 144 points.

• They broke their own record for wins, surpassing last year's 15.

• Demery broke the team's single-season scoring record with her 21st goal.

• They achieved a national NCAA Division II ranking of sixth, matching their previous high-water mark.

In Sunday's win, after Cal State East Bay gave Stanislaus the 1-0 lead on an own goal, Demery went to work. Sabrina Williamson assisted on Demery's first score at 64:49 and Katelyn Nebesnick helped on Demery's second score at 69:41.

The top seeded Warriors will face either Cal State Los Angeles or UC San Diego on Friday at 7 p.m. Sonoma State and CSU San Bernardino will play in the other semifinal at 4:30 p.m.
