Soccer: San Marcos JV Beats Oxnard, Falls to Thousand Oaks

Royals step up their game in tournament.

The San Marcos junior varsity girls’ soccer team picked up Saturday where it had left off, with a 1-0 victory against Oxnard, a game in which the Royals dominated.

It was tough, given the high winds in Ventura. Vicky Uribe was the lone goal scorer, and she scored on a shot that proved to be very tricky for the goalie because of the winds. The defense was incredible, providing Oxnard only one half opportunity. Jamie Mayner continued to dominate the left side of the defense, and Katie Shara helped the transition between offense and defense. Shannon Sweeney and Katherine Crook played to their typical abilities, incredible.

And although there were plenty solid individual performances, like Sarah Beveridge’s brave effort and Lea Topinko’s play along the wing, the tournament did not end on that note, as the girls lost 2-0 to Thousand Oaks. But considering our early season results against Thousand Oaks, there was clear evidence this team is turning the corner on becoming a quality team. The girls should not be ashamed of the result, Thousand Oaks is a quality side, and the overall tournament performance was remarkable.

The Royals finished the tournament 2-1-1.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
