GSoc: Warriors fall in TVL opener

Carpinteria started strong in its Tri-Valley League girls soccer opener against La Reina. But the Regents scored a goal, took control of the game and rolled to a 6-0 decision in Thousand Oaks on Friday.

“After they scored their first goal, we just lost a lot of our momentum,” Carpinteria coach Charles Bryant said. “Our passes were not as sharp, we were having defensive breakdowns and although we still were fighting, we were losing a majority of the battles.”

Despite the loss, Bryant felt the team played well. “Kelsie Bryant was always around the ball, making good decisions and her play drew the compliments of the La Reina coaches,” he said. “I thought Monica Garcia and Lesly Zapata, although both are hurt, played well also.”

Carpinteria (5-3-1, 0-1) plays host to Grace Brethren on Monday.
