Carpinteria Slogs Its Way to 8-0 Win Over Bishop Diego

The Carpinteria girls soccer team showed their coach that they are good sloggers.

The Warriors braved the rain and soggy field conditions and rolled past Bishop Diego 8-0 in a Frontier League match.

"We just seemed to be a little better in the sloppier conditions and did a great job of continuing to move the ball around the field even though at times we stalled due to the slower grass or puddles," said Carpinteria coach Charles Bryant. "But overall, we were able to play our possession game, which was great to see."

Elizabeth Estrada, Ava Gropper and Kendra Meza each scored two goals and Alejandra Alvarez and Aly Springer tacked on one apiece. Yaneli Gutierrez had two assists.

Carpinteria center back Alejandra Garcia and goalkeeper Laura Valdez played strong games, said Bryant.

"This was a much closer game than the score and I expect a much tighter match the next time we play them," Bryan said. "I think we were fortunate that the ball seemed to skip or slide our way a little more tonight."

Carpinteria is now 4-4 overall and 2-0 in the Frontier 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!
