Dos Pueblos Girls Soccer Can’t Hold Lead, Settles for Tie

Dos Pueblos twice gave away leads and settled for a 2-2 tie against visiting Moorpark in a non-league girls soccer match on Monday at Scott O'Leary Stadium.

The Chargers took the lead in the fifth minute when a ball played into forward Anya Schmitz was flicked to the speedy Kiara Pickett. She was able to round the Moorpark center back before being taken down from behind. They were awarded a penalty kick and Pickett converted.

Moorpark tied the score in 23rd minute, capitalizing on a slip by a DP player. Forward Jordan Geller pounced on the turnover and powered a shot past goalkeeper Anali Salazar.

Dos Pueblos came out in the second half and controlled possession. Pickett was fouled 35 yards out and she delivered a direct free kick that was mishandled by the Moorpark goalkeeper. Elena Ibettson followed the ball and forced it into the back of the net for a 2-1 lead in the 60th minute.

Dos Pueblos caught Moorpark pushing players forward but misfired on a shot that would have extended the lead. The Chargers had 10 shots on goal.

That miss came back to haunt the Chargers, as Moorpark's Geller got behind the defense and finished to knot the score at 2-2.

"It was a good night out for the Chargers against a strong Moorpark team," DP coach Hugh Hollis said. "We just need to have a little bit more composure around the goal area. Something we need to work on in training."

The Chargers (1-2-2) play at Santa Paula on Wednesday.

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!
