Santa Barbara Girls Soccer Swept in Road-Home Doubleheader

The Santa Barbara High girls soccer team played a road-home doubleheader on Friday and dropped both games.

The Dons lost 3-1 at Santa Paula and then fell 3-0 against San Diego's San Marcos at La Playa Stadium. 

Sofia Capeletti scored off a Hayden Randolph assist to give Santa Barbara the lead against Santa Paula in the first half.

"I thought we played well in the second half but Santa Paula was able to capitalize on a couple of break downs," Santa Barbara coach Jill Wolf said. "After the first game we hopped back on the bus and returned to town to face San Marcos High School from San Diego and came up on the losing side. 

"I am super proud of the effort the girls gave today."

Because of the Thomas Fire, the Dons hadn't played a match since Nov. 29.

"We asked a lot of them today and they gave it all they had," Wolf said of her players. "I think  they were all just really happy to be back on the field and had fun playing together again.  They had some really great moments and other moments where we saw what we need to improve on."

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!
