Carpinteria misses out on Frontier League title in 1-0 loss to Fillmore

The Carpinteria High girls soccer team dominated its game against Fillmore, but could not put the ball away and made one mistake, resulting in a 1-0 loss.

Thursday’s result dropped the Warriors to second place in the Frontier League behind Grace Brethren.

Carpinteria had a significant advantage over its opponents in shots taken, but was unable to get a goal.

“We just couldn’t get the ball in the net,” head coach Lucy Carleton said.

This was the second consecutive game in which the Warriors were held scoreless despite taking more than the opposition.

“We’re certainly creating chances; we just need to work on finishing,” Carleton said. “We have the potential to do it. We just need to do it.”

Carpinteria scored 27 goals in league play while only allowing seven. The team finished with an 11-4-4 overall record and went 6-1-3 in league.

The Warriors have earned a spot in the postseason and playoff brackets will be released on Monday.
