Aggressive girls’ soccer offense takes down Cristo Rey Saints

After trouncing the Encina Prep Bulldogs, 9-0, the girls’ soccer team looked to keep up their offensive onslaught against the Cristo Rey Saints on Jan. 5.

While the margin of victory wasn’t as large, the Cavs crushed the Saints, 5-0.

The Cavs were led by senior Natalie Brown and sophomore Lia Kaufman, who had two goals apiece. Sophomore Abby LaComb also scored a goal.

LaComb said the team’s aggressiveness on offense has led to its high-scoring games.

“We played mostly on their half, and shot a lot,” LaComb said. ”We had good plays that put us in an easy scoring position.”

According to junior Nina Dym, the win was a team effort as everyone got to play.

“Kaeleigh (Valverde) and Avi (Bhullar) got out from cramps, but everyone did a great job of stepping in,” Dym said.

Dym also commended goalie Lea Gorny for her play.

To continue their hot streak, the girls need to work on handling the ball.

“We need to get better at dribbling (toward) the goal at a better angle and giving support for back passes,” said LaComb.

The Cavs’ next game is against the Leroy Greene Academy Lions on Monday, Jan. 9, at 3 p.m. at home.
