GSoc: Owls nicked by Villanova

Laguna Blanca suffered a season-opening 3-1 loss to Villanova on Tuesday in a non-league matchup.

The Owls played most of the first half even until giving up two goals in the final minutes before halftime. All three Villanova goals were scored off corner kicks.

Gabby Campbell scored Laguna’s goal early in the second half on an assist by Alex Koke. Aura Carlson was a key factor for the Owls’ success according to head coach Kevin Shertzer.

“Overall, it was a spirited opener for us. I was happy with the energy we brought to the game and it showed us what we need to work on as a team,” Shertzer said.
