Athletics Update (Weekly Bulletin, March 2-6, 2020)

Soccer
The Pilots took on Canyon Crest Academy last Saturday. After both teams were held scoreless for the first half, the Ravens opened the scoring with a long range effort. The Pilots squared the match with a great move and finished by freshman Stella Comana ’20. After finishing the second half and 15 minutes extra time, neither team could secure the winning goal. The game went to PK’s to decide the winner. The Pilots won 4-2 in PK’s with a great save by Sydney Pack ’21 to end the game. Megan Fuson ’22, Jenna Beck ’20, Anna Evenson ’22 and Andrea Tena ’22 all converted their PK’s to send their team to the D1 semifinals.

This week, the Pilots took on #2 seed Grossmont High School for The Division 1 semifinals. The girls played well and also went into overtime and Pk’s. It was a valiant effort in Pk’s but the other team narrowly edged us out  by a kick.
