The Cougars winning streak and shutout streak ended against West Hills and Mt. Carmel at the El Capitan HS Tournament. Against West Hills, the Cougars came up against a very strong and physical team full of upperclassmen and lost 4-0. The loss was the first of the year, and ended over 500 minutes of scoreless soccer against the Cougars defense. Against Mt Carmel, the Cougars lost a heartbreaker 1-0 on a PK in the 70th minute. Although the Cougars suffered their first losses of the year, they played well, and made their first marks on the High School Soccer scene. Next up Valhalla on January 8th!
The Cougars opened the El Capitan Tournament with a 1-0 win over Bonita Vista. Although rusty from Christmas goodies, the Cougars earned their 6th straight shutout and have now gone 480 minutes without a goal scored against them to start the season. The lone goal was scored by JILL FEINBERG late in the 1st half, and provided all the offense that the Defense led by BECCA SANDERS, SARAH YOUNG, KELSEY RICHARDSON, EMELY RODRIGUEZ, SARAH DIEM, and LISA MIX who moved to Stopper late in the 2nd half to help secure the shutout would need. Once again GK JESSI BRUCE was tested often, but played brilliantly. Next up, West Hills @ 3:55pm.
Playing brilliantly against a determined Monte Vista team, Goalkeeper JESSI BRUCE, and the Cougar defense registered it's 5th shutout in a row. The offense was well balanced as Center-Midfielder Tahnee Francel distributed the ball to all sides of the field and led the attack. The goal scoring was led by LISA MIX and SARAH BARAJAS who each scored 2 goals. Also scoring was KELSEY RICHARDSON, MEGAN VARNEY, JILL FEINBERG, SHAUNA COONEY, and DANI MORGAN. The highlight of the game was DANI MORGAN's brilliant run from midfield, beating four players, and placing a beautiful shot in the lower left corner. Next up El Capitian Tournament 26, 27, 28th!!

Undefeated Cougars defeat Mt. Miguel 8-0!

The Cougars went to 4-0 for the season with an impressive 8-0 win over Mt. Miguel @ El Cajon Valley High School. The Cougars defense led by Goalkeeper Jessi Bruce, Becca Sanders, Kelsey Richardson, Sarah Young, Emely Rodriguez, and Sarah Diem registered another shutout, and have yet to be scored on for the season! The offense led by another 4 goal game by Lisa Mix dominated the game, and bombarded the Mt. Miguel Goalkeeper all afternoon. Also scoring for the Cougars were Geslee Giorgi, Whitney White, Sarah Young, and Tahnee Francel, who had another brilliant game passing and leading the attack. Next up, Monte Vista @ Monte Vista.
The Cougars opened Grossmont League play with a convincing 2-0 win over Granite Hills at the Steele Canyon Girl's Soccer Complex. LISA MIX'S break away goal in the 60th minute broke open a scoreless game, and JILL FEINBERG sealed the Cougar victory with an incredible individual effort by beating two players and placing a shot over the Goal Keepers head. Geslee Giorgi played a tremendous game at forward causing havoc on the Granite Hills defense, and just missing on many quality scoring opportunities. Next up Mount Miguel on December 18 @ El Cajon High School.imageimage
