WHITTIERNicole Castro scored the game's only goal minutes before the final whistle as the Occidental women's soccer team picked up a solid road victory with a 1-0 win at Whittier on Saturday.

Castro found the top of the net in the 86th minute with a magnificent goal from 30 yards out.

"That was a tremendous goal worth of winning any game," Oxy head coach Colm McFeely said.
