Ladyjack Soccer Update

Both the Ladyjack and Lumberjack soccer teams were back in action Tuesday night against conference opponent,  Lisa Academy.  The Ladyjacks and Lady Jaguars started the night off in slightly windy but warm conditions.  As what has become customary, the Ladyjacks jumped out with a three goal outburst before 20 minutes had passed.  Junior Denisha Stallings started off the scoring with two goals in a matter of 30 seconds.  Coach Quoss said, "Denisha is a threat anytime she steps on the field.  She has a natural ability to shoot, pass, and dribble through most defenses.  Opposing teams have to always account for her wherever she is on the field."  Junior Hannah Richey and Freshmen Isabel Densmore also added goals to make the game 5 to 0 at half.  "Richey, Densmore, and Stallings are a tough combination for most teams to handle.  These girls are off to terrific starts to the season and we have high expectations for the rest of our season," Coach Quoss added.  After halftime, Denisha added her fourth goal of the night along with another goal from senior and captain Anahi Rostro to help the Ladyjacks cruise to another conference victory.  The Ladyjacks are currently 2 and 0 in conference.

The Lumberjack soccer team took the field after an impressive second place finish in the El Dorado tournament this past weekend.  The Jacks blitzed the Jaguar defense early and often with precise passing and aggressive play.  Sophomore sensation, Daniel Mondragon, started the scoring off with two goals in a matter of 3 minutes.  Minutes later, Senior Alex Ramirez headed the ball into the back of the net from a perfect corner kick from Daniel Mondragon.  The Jaguar defense had no answer and would experience another goal from another corner kick minutes later when Freshmen Javier Tinoco also headed the ball through the Jaguar defense to take control of the game.  Junior Luke Barbara and Senior Oscar Padilla rounded out the first half scoring to lead the Jacks to a 6 to 1 halftime lead.  Lisa Academy's first half goal was a result of a penalty kick from a foul inside the box and provided the only glimpse of hope for the Jaguars in the first half.  The second half saw the Jacks score in the first 10 minutes to go up 7 to 1.  Junior Gadiel Garay was responsible for the score and would be the final goal of the night for the Jacks who ran away with another conference victory.  The Jacks look impressive with their blistering team speed and ball control.  Coach Densmore's team looks to play a substantial role in the state tournament later this spring.
