Alejandra Alvarez’s Hat Trick Powers Carpinteria to 4-1 Win

Carpinteria's Alejandra Alvarez is on fire for the Carpinteria girls soccer team.

She recorded a hat trick Saturday, powering the Warriors to a 4-1 non-league victory over a shorthanded St. Bonaventure.

"She has been playing so well lately, whether it is from her outside back position or as a midfielder," Carpinteria coach Charles Bryant said. "Two goals in her last game and three today."

Dayne Wagner opened the scoring, beating the St. Bonaventure goalkeeper with a blast from 25 yards.

Alvarez then took over. On her first goal, she fought off defenders to get her shot off. The second goal was assisted by Aisha Durate and her third was off a nice feed from Yaneli Silva.

"I thought Yaneli did a great job today and was much more involved in her center midfield role," said Bryant. "Xochitl Moreno and Aly Springer were very solid on defense as well."

Carpinteria (2-4) will take the rest of December off from playing matches.

"The girls get a week off of practice due to finals week and then hopefully we can get a practice or two in over the break to get ready for league play in January," said Bryant.

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!
