Kelly Bickett’s Hat Trick Lifts Laguna Blanca Past Bishop Diego

Kelly Bickett of Laguna Blanca capped a hat trick with a game-winning goal in a 3-2 girls soccer season-opening victory against Bishop Diego on Wednesday.

Bickett converted the game winner on a penalty kick after Bea Lujan was taken down in the 18-yard box with two minutes left in the game.

Bishop Diego took a 1-0 lead on a powerful shot from Anna Coronado.

Bickett tied the score for Laguna. She ran on to a through ball from Sophia Fay, kept possession while being defended, nudged in front and scored.

The Owls took a 2-1 lead when Bickett took a feed from Julia Guglielmo and scored.

Bishop tied the score on a well-struck 25-yard free kick from Julia Gregson before Bickett delivered for the third time.

"Overall, it was great to start the season off with a win," Laguna coach Kevin Shertzer said. "It was a perfect way to identify things we need to work on and I was proud of the way our girls didn’t give up when Bishop tied the game late."  

Laguna hosts Hueneme on Friday.

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!
