Balanced Scoring Effort Highlights Carpinteria’s 8-1 Smackdown of Villanova

Hamadi, Smolnikar and Jiminez record two goals in blowout

The tide is turning for Carpinteria girls soccer, which routed Villanova Prep at home 8-1 on Thursday.

After a tough stretch earlier this season, the Warriors improve to 3-3-3 in the Frontier League and 4-6-7 overall. 

Zahea Hamadi, Cydney Smolnikar and Abril Jiminez logged two-goal performances, while Kendra Meza and Yaneli Silva grabbed one score apiece. Warriors coach Charles Bryant credited an "unselfish" effort for the team's varied offensive display.  

"We started off a little rough in the beginning controlling the ball but eventually we started to find our way," Bryant said.  "It was good to see some of the players have success in front of the goal." 

The Warriors have won two straight to improve their circumstances in the Frontier League. On Friday they take on Nordhoff on the road. The match will be Carpinteria's fourth in five days.

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!
