Carpinteria, Cate Girls Play to 1-1 Draw in Girls Soccer

Carpinteria and Cate battled to a 1-1 girls soccer draw in a Frontier League match on a windy Saturday afternoon on Shepard's Mesa.

Aisha Duarte blasted home a shot in the first minute for the Carpinteria and Cate equalized in the last few minutes of regulation.

"Cate's goal in the last few minutes was a bit of a fluke as the ball went vertical from a shot, hung up in the wind, bounced and hit the roof of the net," Carpinteria coach Charles Bryant said. "At that point we were definitely on our heels but we were not breaking.  Just an unfortunate bit of luck. But give Cate credit, they have added a few strong pieces to their roster and are definitely a different team from year's past."

Bryant praised the play of defender Alejandra Garcia and goalkeeper Laura Valdez.

"Laura made some amazing saves, but she made many of them seem routine," Bryant said. "She positioned herself well and was cat-like quick when she needed to be.

"On offense our chances were not as many in the second half, but we definitely had a few that with a bit of luck could have changed the dynamics of the game."

Carpinteria is 2-5-1 overall and 1-1-1 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!
