Ana Jevremovic scored a first-half goal for Dos Pueblos, but the Chargers conceded two in the second half and dropped a 2-1 girls soccer decision against Santa Paula, 2-1, in their season opener on Wednesday.

Jevremovic hit a left-footed, curling shot from outside the 18-yard box that hit the far post and went in.

“We were solid in the midfield, connecting passes and preventing any potential counterattacks,” said first-year coach Marco Medina. “Credit to midfielders Madelyn Jones, Anastasia Brunner, Audrey Kling, and Gabriella Wilcox.”

The Chargers host Carpinteria on Friday.
