Laguna Blanca Rallies Behind Kelly Bickett’s Two Goals

Kelly Bickett found the net twice on Friday for Laguna Blanca girls soccer, as the Owls rallied past Santa Clarita Christian, 2-1.

Down 1-0 early in the match, Bickett curled a corner kick into the net for the equalizer. Alex Koke had a shot on goal near the end of the second half but the Santa Clarita Christian keeper made a nice save to keep the match tied.

25 minutes into the second half, Pisci Abrego picked up a loose ball and played a nice through pass to Bickett who calmly place the ball in the corner for the go ahead goal. The Owls defense held the rest of the way.

"It feels good not only to win, but to put the work in and feel deserved of the win against a quality opponent," said Laguna Blanca coach Kevin Shertzer. "Tonight we played with confidence and organization."

Laguna Blanca hosts Bishop Diego on Wednesday in a non-league matchup.

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!
