Big Second Half Powers Dos Pueblos Girls Lacrosse Past Valencia

Gia Halleck and Brooke Essig each scored five goals, and Dos Pueblos outscored Valencia 9-2 in the second half en route to a 15-8 girls lacrosse victory on Thursday.

"We played the DP way in the second half and cleaned up silly errors we were making in the first half," said coach Samantha Limkeman. "I think this game helped our team realize their potential as a cohesive unit."

Olivia Geyling keyed the second-half surge by winning every faceoff, "which is what allowed us to hold the the ball until the perfect time for a shot," said Limkeman.

For the game, DP controlled 15 draws and Valencia had five.

"It was a victory earned by the entire team, but I am particularly awed by Geyling's draws, Halleck's shots, and Essig's tenacity on attack and defense," said Limkeman.

The second half DP held possession of the ball for 20 of the 25 minutes. We score nine goals to Valencia's two in the second half, ending the game with a 15-8 victory.

The Charger defense was led by Liv Naaman, Kenzie Hemman, and Essig.

Dos Pueblos (2-2) hosts Thousand Oaks on Tuesday.

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!
