Carpinteria Blanks Nordhoff, Sets Up Showdown With Santa Paula

Carpinteria put together some highlight-reel goals in beating Nordhoff, 4-0, in a Tri-Valley League boys soccer match at home on Monday night.

The Warriors won at Nordhoff, 1-0, on Friday. The two wins raise Carpinteria's league record to 5-1-1.

Gabriel Barajas got the scoring started Monday in the 25th. He finished a nice passing sequence that started from the goalkeeper. Four touches later, Barajas scored off a pass from Saul Hernandez.

Luis Garcia ripped a free kick that the Nordhoff goalkeeper coughed up and the opportunistic Barajas jumped on the loose ball and scored his second goal in the 29th minute.

Garcia made it 3-0 in the 55th minute, beating the goalkeeper "with a beautiful left-footed strike," said coach Leo Quintero.

Mario Jimenez finished the scoring with a 35-yard blast that traveled from left to right and banged into the net off the top right corner of the goal. Hernandez assisted on the play.

Cristian Estrada and Adrian Gonzalez teamed up at goal to combine for the shutout.

"Today was a great confidence booster, with great play from both our defense and offense," Quintero said.

The win sets up a first-place showdown with Santa Paula, which is also 5-1-1.

"Our boys have been preparing all season long for moments like these. It should be a great game for our team, school, fans and community to be a part of," said Quintero.

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!
