Busy Week For Falcon Soccer

Women’s Soccer 

By Claire Jahns

Last Tuesday our Lady Falcons took on Rio Americano at Sac City.  Both the Falcons and the Raiders were undefeated coming into this game.  The Lady Falcons started strong in the first half, but Rio player Emma Davis scored by bouncing the ball off of the goalie’s hand and into the goal.  The Falcons noticeably lost steam in the second half but tried to remain optimistic, with shots by Emma Thompson ’18 and Maci Bakarich ’19.  Sadly, neither was successful and the Falcons remained down 1-0 for the remainder of the game. The Falcons fought hard but could not come through with a win against Rio Americano.  On Thursday, the girls took on El Camino at El Camino high school.  The Lady Falcons fought hard but ended the game with a 0-0 tie.  The Falcons almost scored with a breakaway by Emma Thompson and a good shot by Caeley Kelly ’18.  Even though the girls could not come through with a win, they hope to come back with a game against Casa Robles at Sac City Tuesday at 7 PM.

Last Tuesday, Christian Brothers played Rio Americano in Men’s Soccer. With Rio being one of Christian Brothers biggest competition in league play, CB started strong with two shots on target. Shortly after those two missed shots, Rio started to attack with two shots both going in. At the end of the half Rio lead 2-0. In the second half, Rio had three more opportunities to score, two of those went in, with one penalty shot stopped by Christian Brothers goalkeeper Ben Kessler ’19. Christian Brothers had one more shot, but it was stopped. Despite the strong effort, Christian Brothers lost 4-0 bringing their league record to 2-3.

Last Thursday, Christian Brothers played El Camino. Christian Brothers had goals from David Smiley ’19, Joseph Waldon ’19, Colin Quinn ’20, and Hunter Dierlam ’20 in a 4-2 win. With this strong win, Christian Brothers record came to 3-3. The Christian Brothers Falcons hope to carry this momentum to their next game against Casa Roble on Tuesday night.
