Ramona High girls soccer shuts out Mission Vista in league opener

By Joe Naiman

Ramona High School’s girls soccer team opened Valley League play Jan. 22 with a 1-0 home win over Mission Vista.

“They played very well, maintained possession clearly better than the other team,” said assistant coach Deena Vizcarra. “They basically played their game.”

The game’s only goal was scored in the first half by senior Bianca Scodellaro. Freshmen Mikaila McNary had the assist on the play. Goalkeeper Taylor Stacy made 10 saves while defenders Courtney Dolan, Ceci Estrada, Sydney Marin, and Sydney Schmidt also contributed to the shutout.

Ramona’s second league match Jan. 24 at home against Oceanside was a 4-1 victory for the Pirates. All five of the goals were scored in the first half.

Oceanside scored the game’s first three goals.

“We just had a little bit of breakdown in our defense,” Vizcarra said.

A goal by Kacie Jordan with an assist from Scodellaro made the score 3-1, although the Pirates subsequently regained their three-goal margin.

The results gave Ramona a 4-4-2 overall season record along with the 1-1 Valley League mark.

“Overall the girls are playing well. They’re an extremely strong team,” said Vizcarra.

Ramona’s roster consists of 14 juniors, three seniors, two sophomores, and two freshmen.

“Even with our loss to Oceanside we’re still expecting the team to do very well in league,” Vizcarra said.

The Bulldogs have a league home game Friday against Del Norte.
