Galaviz, Nakugawa score two goals each in Blackhawk victory

Southeastern Community College’s women’s soccer team won its fifth straight match Saturday, but the schedule is getting tougher.

The Blackhawks (9-8) blanked Dakota County Technical College, 6-0, in Saturday’s first round of the Region XI tournament at the Burlington Regional RecPlex. That win advances SCC to Tuesday’s semifinals against No. 2 seed Hawkeye (12-4) at Waterloo. SCC is the third seed.

Hawkeye defeated SCC twice in the regular season, 3-0 Sept. 21 in Waterloo and 6-1 Oct. 5 at the RecPlex.

“They have a lot of good offensive options.,” SCC coach Zac Newton said of Hawkeye. “They can score goals. I think we’ve got a couple girls who can finish and take their chances, but I think they have just a bit more depth than us. They will cause us problems. They’re quick on the wings. They get up top. So we’re going to need a very good defensive effort.”
