Carpinteria Girls Soccer Loses to Channel Islands

Zahea Hamadi and Aly Springer combined to give Carpinteria a lead, but Channel Islands responded with three unanswered goals to beat the banged-up Warriors 3-1 in a non-league girls soccer game on Tuesday.

"We came out strong in the second half and scored fairly early on a great ball from Zahea Hamadi to Aly Springer who easily blasted it home from 10 yards away," coach Charles Bryant said.

"Everything was looking good until about a minute later when we had a letdown on defense, not once but twice within a few minutes."

The Raiders capitalized and scored the equalizer.

"We just have to be better at managing the game and understanding when we are vulnerable after we score," Bryant said.

Channel Islands added two more goals against a Warriors team that is missing some key players with injuries.

"I know we will get better and get stronger.  And I am glad we are getting exposed now versus later. We will make adjustments, we will get our injured players back and hopefully have everyone playing in the correct positions," Bryant said. "It is just hard to take now as I know we have more in us.  But it will come."

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!
