GSoc: Owls dropped by Santa Clarita Christian

Santa Clarita Christian avenged a loss from a season ago on Friday by defeating Laguna Blanca 3-1 in a non-league contest.

The Owls scored first in the first half before giving up three straight goals and the game. Gabby Campbell scored Laguna Blanca’s goal in the 31st minute, finishing a play started by Bella Gavasse and Margaux Murphy.

Santa Clarita tied the game five minutes later and then added two goals late in the second frame.

“Despite losing, we never gave up and I was especially pleased with the way in which we incorporated elements which we worked on in practice into a game scenario,” said Owls head coach Kevin Schertzer. “We are improving with each game and that is exactly what you want out of early season games.”

Schertzer commended Tiffany Yabsley for her defensive performance.

The Owls host Oak Grove in their Condor League opener on Wednesday.
