The Santa Barbara Soccer Club Girls White 2005 Team won the Cal South State Cup Governors’ Division, becoming the first girls team in the club’s history to win a State Cup. 

The SBSC Girls went 8-0-1 in the tournament and defeated the AV SC Storm of Apple Valley for the championship in a penalty-kick shootout, 5-4, after playing to a draw through regulation and overtime.

Santa Barbara scored 15 goals and allowed only one (on an own goal) in its nine tournament games. 

The SBSC White GO5 team is coached by former UCSB standout Waid Ibrahim. The team members include Lily Blankenhorn, Caitlyn Early, Izzy Garofalo, Camila Jeronimo, Jenna and Sadie Johnson, Maya Klanfer, Eden Lazarus, Izzy Romero, Zoe Thomas, Siena Urzua, Gabi Wilcox, and Kasia Wolf.

The title marks a remarkable turnaround by the team. In 2016, the team experienced numerous injuries and a change in coaching staff.

Santa Barbara opened State Cup with a 2-0 won over CDA Slammers FC from Huntington Beach and followed with a 1-1 draw with Matrix of San Marcos, a 2-0 victory over Ventura County Fusion, a 2-0 win over Futbol Foundation of Santa Clarita, a 1-0 win against Murrieta Surf Blue and a 2-0 victory over Express Select from Encinitas.

In the playoffs, Santa Barbara edged Central Coast Condors of Arroyo Grande, 1-0, in the quarterfinals and routed San Juan Capistrano’s West Coast FC, 4-0 in the semifinals.

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!
