Santa Barbara Girls Beat Buena on Payton Wolf’s Goal

Payton Wolf converted a penalty kick in the second half and Santa Barbara High's defense made the goal stand up for a 1-0 victory over Buena in a Channel League girls soccer match on Thursday night.

Wolf chased down a through ball that was played over the defense, beat the last defender and was taken down in the penalty area to earn the PK.

The Dons then held off Buena's push to score the equalizer in the last 15 minutes.

"Our girls were up to the task," Santa Barbara coach Jill Wolf said. "They were ready for a win; they fought for it, they deserved it. I'm super happy for them."

Coach Wolf said Miranda Fenton played a solid game in the midfielder and won a lot of 50-50 balls. 

"Defensively, our back line did a great job of staying disciplined and working as a unit," said Wolf.

The Dons (3-7, 2-4) play San Marcos on Monday.

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!
