At Stevenson 8, Columbia High 0 --
With three players sitting due to suspension and five more sidelined with injuries, the Bruins struggled in the beginning stages of their Sept. 18 match at Carson.

La Center 2, at Columbia High 0 --
The Wildcats broke a scoreless tie Sept. 16 with a goal in the 60th minute of play.
Bruins Coach Amy Kasenga said La Center's second goal came on a "no call" by the referees that caused goalie Kelsey Kidd to lose possession of the ball from a dangerous high kick by a La Center forward.
Kasenga cited the play of Kidd (17 saves) and solid defense as the keys to Columbia's "tough play."
