Sports: A Noozhawk Partnership with Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table, The Lab, and American Riviera Bank

Westmont Women Blank Arizona Christian

After a long road trip to Phoenix, fourth-ranked Westmont women’s soccer (10-2-1, 3-2 GSAC) won its third Golden State Athletic Conference game, beating Arizona Christian 4-0.

Westmont improved to 10-2-1 and 3-2 in the GSAC while Arizona Christian fell to 4-5-1 and 1-4.

The first goal came in the 9th minute after Alanna Richards fired off a shot that was deflected by the Firestorm goal keeper, Serenity Masterson. Brooke Lillywhite collected the ball and converted the deflection into a goal.

In the second half, the Warriors went on to score three more goals. In the 50th minute, Lillywhite also scored the second goal of the game and her 16th goal of the season off of a free kick. The game’s third goal came in the 71st minute when Lillywhite played a through ball to Jackie Lopez who finished in the lower left side of the goal.

The final goal came in the 86th minute when Maddi Berthoud laid the ball off to Grayce DeGroot who nailed a shot into the lower left corner of the goal.

Head coach Chantel Cappuccilli shared her reflections on the game.

“After coming off a tough loss the girls had a positive response in training, which translated to a positive result for us today,” noted Cappuccilli. “They're determined to continue improving, and at this point in the season, it's exciting that we still have room to develop and build.

“The weekend isn't over with another leg of our road trip on Monday,” continued Cappuccilli. “We will recover  and build off a shutout and four goals as we head into our next match.”

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!
