Dos Pueblos Girls Edge Out Santa Barbara

The Dos Pueblos girls lacrosse team narrowly defeated Channel League rival Santa Barbara, 8-7, on Thursday at Peabody Stadium.

After falling behind 4-2 at halftime, the Chargers rallied to outscore the Dons 6-3 in the second half. 

Grace Long scored three goals, including the go-ahead goal in the last 1:30, to lead Dos Pueblos. Goalie Emily Khetnaree had six saves for the Chargers.

Dos Pueblos coach Sam Limkeman praised the defensive play of Alexia Vance, Adriana Perez, and Katie Wilcox, whose second half play gave the Chargers the opportunity to win.

Mia Barton and Payton Wolf each had three goals and Anais Jimenez tallied one for Santa Barbara.

"This was the closest game of our season, but in the end DP wanted it just a little bit more," said Santa Barbara coach Kristin Boehm.

With the victory, the Chargers improved to 4-9 overall and 3-4 in league play. They host Dunn on Tuesday.

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!
