Mila Ladek’s First Goal Sparks SBCC Women Past Ventura, 3-0

Mila Ladek scored her first goal of the season in the 17th minute on Friday night and SBCC went on to shut out Ventura 3-0 in a WSC North women’s soccer match at La Playa Stadium.

The Vaqueros (7-2-1, 2-0 WSC North) won for the fifth straight time and extended their home win streak to 14 games. Ventura fell to 3-6-4 and 1-1.

Lourdes Marin-Rodriguez chipped a pass over the defense and Ladek drilled a shot over the keeper’s head from 15 yards out at 16:54 for the only goal of the first half.

 “Lala played it to me and I turned and shot it with my left foot to the upper right-hand corner,” said Ladek, a sophomore midfielder who transferred from the University of La Verne. “We really  brought the intensity and played well as a unit, especially in the middle. We connected very well and got the ball to the final third many times. We had a lot of good chances on goal.”

The Vaqueros had a slight advantage in shots, 17-15, and in shots-on-goal, 7-6. It was their third straight shutout of Ventura in the series and Santa Barbara has won the last three meetings by a combined 11-0.

In the 66th minute, Riley Moore sent a long lead pass to Monica Vallecilla, who had just entered the game two minutes earlier. Vallecilla dribbled around a defender and sent a cross from the right side that Ashlee Schouten buried into the top left corner for a 2-0 lead.

At 75:16, Ladek sent a through ball between two defenders to Moore on the right side. Moore crossed it to a wide-open Isabella Viana, who scored her 10th goal into an open net.

Holly Telliard made six saves for her fourth shutout of the year.

The Vaqueros will host Cuesta (9-3, 2-0) on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.

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!
