Cards brave the elements against Saints

It was cold, windy and muddy at Santa Clara High in Oxnard Monday, but the Bishop Diego girls soccer team fought through to pick up a 2-0 win over the Saints.

“We even had a few players out with the flu, but we played a hard-fought game,” said coach Brent Gonsalves.

Allison Carr followed up a rebound off of a Natalie Durtche shot to get Bishop on the board, and Sheena Martinez blasted a cross into the box from the corner flag that resulted in an own-goal to end the game’s scoring.

Gonsalves said that Melissa Georgi and Selena Schmidt played great on the defensive side of the ball.

The Cardinals (3-5 Frontier League) will go for their third win in a row Tuesday at Grace Brethren.
