FayAnn Wooton-Raya Scores Sudden-Death Game Winner for Dos Pueblos

The Dos Pueblos girls lacrosse team battled in a back and forth matchup against Thacher and came out victorious 8-7 in sudden death overtime on Thursday.

After falling behind 3-2 at halftime, the Chargers managed outscore Thacher by one the rest of the way to tie the match up at 7 at the end of regulation.

No goals were scored in the first overtime, due in part to a stellar save made by Charger goalie Emily Khetnaree.

In the second overtime period, Hannah Vermilyea snatched the ball and passed it to FayAnn Wooton-Raya, who scored the game winner with 1:47 left.

Wooton-Raya scored three goals on the game to lead Dos Pueblos, while Alina Henrickson and Vermilyea each added two.

"I could not be more proud of my team," said Dos Pueblos head coach Sam Limkeman. "We wanted it, and on senior night, we took it. This game was played with finesse and strategy and played as a team. Each of my girls fought their hardest and this ends our season with joy and feeling proud to be a Charger."

Dos Pueblos ends the season 5-5 in Channel League play and 5-12 overall.

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!
