After coming out of the half tied at 1s, Bakersfield ripped LA Valley for three goals to run away with a 4-1 road victory to open their 2016 season with a win.
"I'm really thrilled to say we had four different goal scorers," Head Coach Scott Dameron said, "Because I think that's the strength of this year's team; we are pretty balanced."
Ali Castro scored the first goal from about 40 yards out, and Dameron called it an "absolute bomb".
Sabrina Sanchez set up the 'Gades second goal just one minute after entering the game in the second half as a sub; she slipped a ball through to Amelia Lopez who drove the ball home from about 18 yards out.
But Sanchez wasn't done being helpful, and about 15 minutes later she found Maria Carrillo with a similar ball that only required nimble collection and a steady shot to beat the keeper.
Odalys Espinoza scored BC's final goal on a PK given after a handball on a corner kick.
