Carpinteria Soccer Rallies for Draw; Bishop Diego, Cate Fall in Girls Basketball

Carpinteria battled back from a 2-0 deficit and gained a 2-2 draw against Fillmore in a Frontier League girls soccer match on Tuesday.

Cydney Smolnikar got the Warriors on the board in the second half to start the comeback.

"We had more energy when we had the ball and seemed to be more disruptive when we did not," coach Charles Bryant said.

Zahea Hamadi equalized the game on a great run, getting behind her defender and finishing on a low driven ball to the corner.

"Unfortunately, we just could not find that third goal," Bryant said. "We had a much more solid overtime as I think we were wearing them down a little bit more. "

The coach praised the play of defenders Alejandra Garcia and Yovanna Ahedo.

Carpinteria is 2-5-2 overall and 1-1-2 in league.

Natalie Whiting scored 15 points and Taylor Pate mad Ariana Rivera each had six for the Cardinals (5-7, 0-2 in the Frontier League).

"We were down 11 early but caught them at the half 22-22," coach Jeff Burich said. "We were sluggish in the second half and only scored 10 points.

The Cardinals are back on the court Wednesday at Nordhoff.

The Rams missed some chances to take the lead down the stretch and lost the Frontier League girls basketball game.

Lily Zanze and Elle Smith each scored six points to lead Cate.

"This game was intense, loud, and aggressive," Cate coach Amy Venditta said. "Every player played a role, and this loss will make every one of them better players and teammates for future games.

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!
