Laguna Blanca Girls Blank Midland in Condor League Opener

Laguna Blanca peppered Midland's goal early and often and took a 5-0 victory in the Condor League girls soccer opener on Saturday.

After being denied by Midland's goalkeeper in the first 20 minutes, Bea Lujan broke through for Laguna Blanca. She intercepted an errant goal kick, beat two defenders and slammed the ball into the net from close range.

The Owls put together a nice sequence for their second goal. Tiffany Yabsley threw the ball into Julia Guglielmo, who flicked it to the back post, where Kelly Bickett finished for her 11th goal of the season.

Guglielmo fed a cross to Pisci Abrego for a goal and Bickett scored again off a cross from Lujan.

Maggie Newell and Julia Fay were standouts on defense, said coach Kevin Shertzer.

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!
