Denise Elias-Martinez scored an unassisted goal in the 11th minute and Reedley made it stand the rest of the way as the Tigers beat Sequoias 1-0 on Sept. 28 to open Central Valley Conference women's soccer play.

The Giants (1-5-0, 0-1-0) finished with 12 shots on goal, but goalkeeper Lucy Chavez saved them all for Reedley (5-2-1, 1-1-0). 

Katie Crawshaw (Kingsburg) made seven saves for Sequoias.

The Giants also lost its final nonconference game of the season, 7-0 at Sierra College in Rocklin.
