The Ramona High School girls soccer team went up against the Rancho Buena Vista Longhorns Friday night on home turf, playing an intense game that resulted in a 0-0 tie.
The Bulldogs’ offensive team of Bianca “B” Scodellaro, Daniela Charbonneau, Kat Lorentz, Danielle Vizcarra, and Katherin Hoertig created opportunities in the first half, beating the Longhorns in shots taken.
The Longhorns came out in the second half challenging the Bulldog defense.
The Bulldogs’ defensive team of Ceci Estrada, Sydney Marin, Courtney Dolan, Sydney Schmidt, Karli Njaa and Hoertig maintained possession of the game and kept the Longhorns from scoring. Bulldog goalkeeper Taylor Stacy assisted in the shutout.
RBV is the second Division I team that the Lady Bulldogs have played during pre-season. The first was Torrey Pines, which resulted in a 1-1 tie.
Going into league play, the Bulldogs’ record is 3-3-2. Their coaches agree that the girls have been working hard on their passing game, keeping possession and finishing strategies throughout pre-season, said assistant varsity coach Deena Vizcarra.
“As long as the girls stay healthy and injury-free, they are ready and prepared for league play,” Vizcarra said.
The Lady Bulldogs will play their first four league games on home turf, beginning Wednesday, Jan. 22, when they kick off against Mission Vista at 5 p.m. On Friday, Jan. 24, they play Oceanside at home, starting at 5 p.m., and then Valley Center at 5:15 p.m. on Jan. 29.
A varsity vs. staff game will be held at 6 p.m. Monday, Jan. 27, at the Boys and Girls Club in Collier Park, 622 E St.
