On Sept. 30, the team lost 1-2 to the Cuyamaca Coyotes at City College’s soccer field.
After the game, Knights Head Coach Andi Milburn showed her disappointment and said that the team had given away some victories, including the just-conluded match.
As of Sept. 30, the Knights have won one game and lost eight.
Neither Milburn nor her assistants would comment further about the game and their team’s performance.
During the first minutes of the game against the Coyotes, both teams moved the ball across the field and had some shots on goal that were unsuccessful.
