Girls soccer enters winter break 8-0

By Joe Naiman

Ramona High School’s girls soccer team took an 8-0 record into winter break.

The Bulldogs played in a light rain Dec. 13 at Orange Glen High School and earned a 6-1 win over the Patriots.

“The girls did a great job,” said Coach Tom Charbonneau.

Freshman Alexis Dinero achieved her second hat trick of the season, scoring four goals. Three of those were in the first half with assists provided by junior Julie Voorhes, senior Samantha Schmidt and senior Valeria Lozano.

Dinero also converted a pass from freshman Karli Njaa into the game’s final goal during the 68th minute of play.

Njaa scored the game’s other first-half goal on a penalty kick to give the Bulldogs a 4-0 halftime lead and opened second-half scoring with a breakaway goal.

The only Orange Glen goal was in the 61st minute, by which time Ramona had a 5-0 lead. The Patriots’ goal was the first against Ramona since Calexico scored the initial goal of the Nov. 29 season opener and ended Ramona’s streak of 30 unanswered goals. The Bulldogs concluded the game with a 31-2 scoring advantage for the season.

Although sweeper Lexi Hogan was named as the Classic Division’s most valuable player during the Barons Tournament, she was injured during the tournament and missed the Orange Glen match.

“There was some shifting of players for the game. Sam (Schmidt) did a great job filling in for Lexi,” Charbonneau said.

The results of the Dec. 17 varsity-alumni game do not count in season statistics. The varsity took a 3-2 victory over Ramona’s former players.

The Bulldogs were supposed to host Julian on Dec. 16, but weather created poor travel conditions out of Julian. If the game isn’t made up during winter break, the Bulldogs’ next game will take place Jan. 4 at Del Norte High School.
