Laguna Blanca Girls Beat Coast Union, 1-0

Freshman goalie Natalie McCaffery made a several saves in the first 10 minutes and Jules Bernard scored on a free kick in the 25th minute, lifting Laguna Blanca to a 1-0 win at Coast Union in Cambria on Tuesday night.

Pisci Abrego was taken down to the left of  the penalty area, resulting in a free kick from a tight angle. Bernard stepped up and curled her shot over the goalkeeper.

The Owls couldn't finish several chances in the second half to give themselves some breathing room.

Coast Union threatened in the final minutes "with a pair of corner kick  that made our hearts skip a beat, but we held strong," said Owls coach Kevin Shertzer.

Shertzer praised the defensive work of Emma Raith and the play of Sophia Fay in the middle.

"With a number of players returning from injuries, I’m very happy with where our team currently  is in our development," said Shertzer.

The Owls are back on the field Wednesday, hosting rival Cate.

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!
