Carpinteria and Cate Tango to 0-0 Draw

Carpinteria girls soccer battled to a scoreless draw at home against Cate on Saturday. The 0-0 finish followed last week's 1-1 tie between the two teams. 

The Warriors kicked one too many long balls on offensive drives, as their forwards were left isolated and outnumbered by defenders, Carpinteria coach Charles Bryant said after the match. He noted that neither team's goalkeeper had much to do, as both teams struggled to make progress in each other's territory. 

While neither team scored during the overtime period, Bryant said his Warriors played with much more heart, though he was "left wondering" if the team would have drawn at all had they played with similar intensity during regulation. 

"Both teams struggled to get any quality chances," Bryant said, "but I was disturbed by not just our poor first touches but also our poor choices when we did have control of the ball.  We consistently bypassed open players to play more difficult balls and we made the game too difficult."

The Warriors have played to three draws this season, sitting at 2-6-3 overall and 1-2-3 in the Frontier League. 

While Cate also recorded its third draw this year, the Rams are in better position, at 3-1-3 in league.

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!
