ALUMNI: Former Knight Ashlen Kelley leads Cañada women to rare playoff win

Cañada women go to PKs for rare playoff win

  • By Terry Bernal Daily Journal Staff Updated

The Cañada women’s soccer team, previously having won its last postseason game in 2006, was staring down the barrel of yet another season without a playoff victory.

Then, trailing 1-0 in the 90th minute, the No. 8-seed Lady Colts (14-3-2) dropped the hammer to tie it against No. 9 Diablo Valley College (11-5-5), with a 5-3 differential in penalty kicks ultimately breaking the 11-year playoff-victory drought Saturday at Cañada College.

Cañada freshman Ashlen Kelley (Hillsdale) blasted a heat-seeker from just outside the penalty box to score the game-tying goal less than a minute prior to the regulation whistle.
