Carpinteria is 5-5 in league and 6-6 overall.

Jamie Sharpe scored six goals, and the Chargers built a 7-2 lead en route to the victory.

Becca Baxis added two goals and Sara Weitzel scored as DP improved to 10-2 on the season.

"I believe what kept our head above water this game was the incredible game by our keeper, Carly Schwan," said DP coach Sam Limkeman. "She played her best game in her career." Schwan made 10 saves.

The Chargers play at Cate on Thursday.

Cate 14, Santa Barbara 3

Brie Walker led the Rams with seven goals, two assists, 10 ground balls and four draw controls.

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!
