Samantha Carrillo (#11) chases after the ball before her opponent can catch up. The Wolves crushed the Regents on Senior Night.

The bottom line | The girls soccer team battled the Reseda Regents on Friday, Jan. 26, crushing them with a score of 5-0. 

Highlights

  • Elisabeth Tafoya (#9) made the first goal of the game with a free kick during the first half.
  • Shortly after the first goal, Guadalupe Tafoya (#3) hustled through the crowd and scored another goal.
  • Elisabeth Tafoya came in again and scored another goal for the team.
  • During the second half Guadalupe came in again and scored yet another goal, finalizing the score to 4-0.
  • At the end of the game, the girls were able to have their heartfelt moment with their seniors and just bond as a team.

What’s next | Coming up next, the girls have a game against the Sylmar Spartans on Friday, Feb. 2, at home. 

Team thoughts | “We played really well compared to the last game we went against Reseda,” Varsity captain Elisabeth Tafoya said. “We made a lot more improvements like passes and more communication.”

Our thoughts | It’s clear that the girls have improved their game as they approach the end of their season. Although the team started their season with a loss, it was amazing to see the girls work together as a team to expand their skills individually and collectively to finish up their season with one last strong home game. It’s sad to see the seniors on the team go, but it was nonetheless a very successful Senior Night dedicated to them. 

For the books

  • 5 win, 9 losses
  • Valley Mission League
