Sofia Garcia-Capelletti’s 4 Goals Send Santa Barbara Girls to First Win

Sofia Garcia-Capelletti buried four goals, lifting Santa Barbara High's girls soccer team to its first win of the season, a 4-0 shutout against Righetti on Monday night at Peabody Stadium.

"Sofia is a special player and a true goal scorer," Santa Barbara coach Jill Wolf said. "We have asked a lot of her this season and she has not disappointed."

Garcia-Capelletti scored her first goal early in the first half off an assist from Cate Herrel. The score remained 1-0 through halftime.

Payton Wolf fed Garcia-Capelletti with a long ball and the forward got behind the defense, beat a defender, and dribbled past the goalkeeper before scoring into the open net for a 2-0 lead in the second half.

She finished a pass from Alissa Becerra for her third goal in the 60th minute and notched No. 4 five minutes later, picking off a back-pass to the goalkeeper and putting her shot away.

"The whole team played great tonight, especially Mae Hancock, who earned the shutout in the goal tonight," said Wolf.

The Dons are 1-3 on the season.

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!
