Resilient Carpinteria Knocks Off First-Place Nordhoff

A trio of freshmen combined for the winning goal, giving Carpinteria a 3-2 win ove first-place Nordhoff in a Frontier League girls soccer match on Friday.

Cydney Smolnikar played the bal to Zahea Hamadi, who laid it off to Kenna Mayer for the finish in the 73rd minute.

The Warriors held off the Rangers down the stretch and improved to 4-3-3 in league and 5-7-3 overall.

"I was amazed at our resiliency and our fight," Carpinteria coach Charles Bryant said. "We hopefully turned a corner tonight in both how to play and just having confidence in our game and our fellow teammates.  Each and every one of them played that last 25 minutes as if it was a playoff game."

Aly Springer ripped a 25-yard shot to give Carpinteria a 1-0 lead in the first half. But Nordhoff answered with two goals just before halftime.

Alejandra Alvarez scored the equalizer for the Warriors with about 12 minutes left in regulation.

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!
