ARROYO GRANDE BEATS SANTA YNEZ
The Santa Ynez girls soccer team lost 0-5 to Arroyo Grande Wednesday night.
The Pirates faced quite a few obstacles in the first half, Coach Rob Cantrell told the News-Press in an email.
“With a roster of 13 players for the match (due to seven starters not yet able to play due to club commitments until after Thanksgiving) the Pirates gained new experiences in different areas of the pitch,” Cantrell said. “This gave the Eagles some opportunities that they capitalized on early with the first half ending 0-4 in favor of the Eagles.
“In the second half, the Pirates settled in and found their confidence pushing and keeping the ball in the Eagles half for the majority of the period, creating six scoring opportunities.”
Cantrell praised his athletes for their resilience and resolve as they evolved from individual play to team play as the game progressed.
