The Sagehen women’s soccer team (13-3-2, 9-3-2 SCIAC) put on an impressive performance Wednesday, picking up a 4-0 statement win over Redlands to seal a spot in the SCIAC Championship.

Peri Cuppens PO ’19 scored twice, including a goal just three minutes into the game, which allowed Pomona-Pitzer to play with a lead all afternoon. Helena Robinowitz PO ’22 scored midway through the second to put the Sagehens up 3-0, her third straight contest with a goal.

The Sagehens will now host Occidental in the SCIAC Championship Nov. 3. The Tigers finished first in the conference, and beat the Sagehens 1-0 when the two teams met Oct. 3. However, P-P has only lost once in the month separating the two matchups, and will look to carry their momentum into the weekend and avenge last year’s conference championship game loss to Whittier.
