Carpinteria, Santa Paula Score Late Goals, Finish in 1-1 Draw

In a battle for first place in the Tri-Valley League, Carpinteria and Santa Paula played to a 1-1 draw in a boys soccer match at Carpinteria Valley Memorial Stadium on Wednesday.

The Warriors scored in the 70th minute, with Luis Garcia finishing a well-placed ball from Angel Orzoco. Garcia beat his defender, went 1 on 1 with the goalkeeper, and placed the ball into the bottom left corner of the goal.

Santa Paula got the equalizer five minutes later, capitalizing on a defensive breakdown.

"We lost focus and lost a ball in front of the goal," said Carpinteria coach Leonardo Quintero. "Our boys are well aware that in this league, regardless of the opponent, one cannot lose focus or concentration and must play 80 minutes at the highest level possible in order to come away with a victory."

The result leaves Carpinteria at 5-1-2 and Santa Paula at 5-0-2 in the tough TVL.

"We give credit where credit is due, and Santa Paula stuck with their game plan despite going down 1-0 with 10 minutes left to play," Quintero said. "Both teams played a great game and I know that our young men left it all on the field in what was our last regular season game at home as well as senior night."

The Warriors play at Cate on Friday.

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!
