Feel sorry for the consolation bracket
DECEMBER 8, 2012 @ IRVINE: After a slow start Saturday morning, FVHS Girls Varsity Soccer showed they really did not belong in the consolation bracket. They controlled the match from the opening whistle. Garden Grove gave it their best, and actually kept the Barons off the scoreboard for the first half, but they were certainly out matched. They scoring came in the second half with Kasey Reeve getting two goals and Madison Gomez and Dakota Griggs each adding one. The Barons finished the tournament with a 5-0 victory and collected the consolation winner trophy.
FVHS has a slow start on Saturday morning
DECEMBER 8, 2012 @ IRVINE: After a tough game on Friday night, FVHS Girls Varsity Soccer just could not get started on Saturday morning in the match against El Toro. While the Barons had their chances they just could not find the net. El Toro did not have the same issues and they found the net twice and took the match 2-0.
FVHS draws a tough start in Irvine Team Challenge
DECEMBER 7, 2012 @ IRVINE: FVHS Girls Varsity Soccer drew a tough first round opponent at the Irvine Team Challenge. Los Oso Grizzlies were the 2011/2012 CIF Division 2 Champions and they had many players returning for that team. However, the Barons did not seem to care. They came out hard in the first half and matched up well with the Grizzlies. It was a hard physical half, but Sophomore goalie Alison Marlow kept a clean sheet and the game went to half 0-0.
Coach Goldman made a few changes at half, and he was able to return Senior Captain Randi Lundquist to her outside defensive position after she came out late in the first half with a leg cramp. The Barons kept the pressure on with some great runs by Senior Captains Maddie Gomez and Dakota Griggs. They were helped out up top by Sophomore Kasey Reeve and Junior Vanessa Kemper, but they just were not able to get on in. The pressure by the Barons did let the Grizzlies make some runs. On one run, Junior Sutton Edwards made a great defensive play to run the Grizzlies attacker right off the ball. However, the referee did not see the same play everyone else did and called a foul. Of course, it was in the box, so the Grizzlies were awarded a penalty kick. After the referee made his point that he was obviously correct and gave a yellow card to Coach Goldman, Freshman goalie Kaelyn Whitcomb made a great effort, but it was a great shot and the Grizzlie took a 1-0 lead.
Of course the soccer gods always seem to know what is right and with less than 10 minutes to play they helped the Barons out. Griggs took a long shot that looked to be over and wide, but she had just the right bend on it and it found the back of the net. The Barons tied it up, and we able to play strong for the rest of the game to come out with a 1-1 tie and pick up 5 points in the pool. They take on El Toro Chargers next and are in a great position to make it to the Championship round.
FVHS Girls Varsity off to a strong start at home!!!
DECEMBER 4, 2012 @ FVHS: FVHS Girls Varsity Soccer took on the Laguna Hills Hawks on December 4 at FVHS Soccer Stadium. After being rained out last week, this was the first look at the 2012/2013 squad and they did not disappoint. Led by Senior Captains Maddie Gomez, Dakota Griggs and Randi Lundquist, the Barons showed excellent ball handling skills and we able to move the ball around the field. Most of the possession stayed in the Baron's offensive end. The defensive line centered by two returning varsity Juniors, Sutton Edwards and Brittney Stevens proved too much for the Hawks' offensive.
The Barons took a early lead in the first half after controlling the ball in the offensive end and sending a shot forward, Sophomore Kasey Reeve was able to put a rebound into the back of the net. Coach Goldman used this first game to get a look at some of the new varsity players. In the second half, the Barons were rewarded with a second goal by one of the first year varsity players. Junior, Vanessa Kemper put a beautiful shot from the outside the 18 into the back of the net.
Returning sophomore goalie, Alison Marlow had a couple of nice saves in the first half and then freshman goalie Kaelyn Whitcomb continued the clean sheet in the second half.
While there were a few sloppy passes, and several girls tripping up on the sloppy field, this was a great result for a team that has high expectations this season. Coach Goldman still has many things he wants to work on, he is happy with the win and is looking forward to building on the momentum as the girls begin Irvine Team Challenge play on Friday evening.
