Tough start at Charger Cup
Game 1 - FV vs. San Juan Hills
We started off really slow and only managed 1 shot on goal in the first
half. SJH got lucky on their 1st goal as the ball ricocheted off our
cross bar and was headed in by one of their players. We trailed 1-0 at
halftime. Our defense tightened up and SJH only managed 1 shot on goal
in the 2nd half but as fate would have it, it found the back of the net.
We fought hard the 2nd half and put together plenty of scoring
opportunities (7 shots on goal). Leah Gates scored with an assist from
Emily Ballard late in the game. Unfortunately, time expired and we were
Game 2 - FV vs. Millikan of Long Beach
This was the opposite of our first game. We started off quick,
controlled the 1st half (ball possession, shots on goal), and then
cooled down in the 2nd half. Our defense played solid as we saw
outstanding effort from our fullbacks as they helped Bailey Williams
record another shut out. We finished 0-0 in regulation and went to
penalty kicks. We did our best but only managed to convert 1 out of 5
shots (Cora Barras scored for us). Bailey Williams held the first 2 PK
attempts but Millikan converted 2 goals and advanced. We lost in PKs
Frosh/Soph continues the great start winning 4-1
- The Barons outshot the Laguna Hills Hawks 14 - 1,
led by Gabby Johnson's 6 shots and 2 goals. She was assisteb by Sami
Oliver and Amy Stengel. Leah Gates scored the other two goals.
Her first goal was assisted by Cora Barras, and her second goal was
unassisted. Several other girls also had shots.
- With only 1 shot against, it is pretty evident that
the defense played very solid. Bailey Williams was strong in goal.
She did not have any saves but did a good job defending the cross passes and
clearing the ball out of the back.
- Overall, it was a strong and aggressive game.
Coach Erika Garrett still has plenty for the girls to work on and they look
to continue the strong start as they begin Charger Cup play this Saturday.
Our 2012 Frosh/Soph
Girls Soccer season is under way and we are happy to report that we
started the year off with a 5-0 victory against our opponents from St.
If you were not there, you missed a lot
of action. The girls dominated the game with aggressive offensive
attacks, crisp passing, stellar ball handling skills, and a relentless
defense. It's always nice to start things off with a shutout but the
season is very early and there is still much to do as our girls build
chemistry and figure out our potential. However, I suspect that we will
have a very successful season. No pressure Ericka!!!
