In their first match of the season, the Lady Braves put great effort against the Lady Chieftains of Clairemont HS.
Keeper Sophia Carrera (’22) successfully blocked 9 shots on goal, only allowing 5 goals during field play, and 1 during a penalty corner.
The Lady Braves defense, new to their positions, picked up their sticks and successfully defended against 17 of the 18 penalty corners against their team.
Player of the Game, Lana Lawrence (’20), had several breakaways, but was ultimately stopped by the Lady Chieftains defenders each time.
One of her teammates described Lana’s breakaways as, “..a sudden burst of energy”, and Coach Ramirez agreed, exclaiming, “Lana took off, utilized skills we’ve been practicing, and set an example for her younger teammates who have joined the sport of field hockey for the first time.”
Be sure to see the Lady Braves and Lana improve their skills and gameplay in their next match on Friday, September 7th, at Mission Bay High School!
