Rio Hondo Women’s Soccer looks to bounce back this weekend against Los Angeles City College.

RHC Women’s Soccer looks to improve their record after a rough beginning to non-conference play. The ‘Runners are yet to win a game in the South Coast Conference, dropping their first game against Mt. Sac and a 2-2 draw against LA Harbor. 

It’s been a tough few games for RHC, having lost four out of five games last month. However, they did tie against LA Harbor in a competitive South Coast Conference battle with a final score of 2-2. 

The ‘Runners are currently sitting in fourth position in the North Division standings, just ahead of East LA. As the season progresses on, the team should have an easier time on the pitch due to their relatively easy conference schedule. After Friday night’s game against Los Angeles City College, RHC hosts a struggling Cerritos College who is 2-7-1 overall and winless in the conference. 

After that game, RHC travels to Compton to take on a one win TarTars team. If the Roadrunners can get through those two games without any trouble, they have a real shot at making up ground against a really good Mt. Sac team, who is in first place. 

There are only five more games until the South Coast tournament begins on November 4th. If RHC can score more than one goal a game, which is their average goals scored, they can make a run for a conference title for the second straight year and the seventh time in eight seasons. 

This program has the capability to bounce back from the rough start, Friday night can be the momentum changer for the Roadrunners if they can capture a win.
