Ranger kickers tie Seraphs in scoreless game
by Misty Volaski
As any Ranger knows, Nordhoff's arch rival is St. Bonaventure
So when Nordhoff's girls' varsity soccer squad met the Seraphs
last Thursday, the Rangers were set on crushing St. Bonny.
Both teams were fairly evenly matched in the first half, with
each squad taking about three shots on goal, said Nordhoff coach
Pete Christl. Basically, he added, "The first half was played
However, with the advantage of having a healthy Ally Taylor back
from an illness and the determination to win after their 5-0
loss to Westlake, the Lady Ranger forwards repeatedly drove the
ball into Seraph territory.
The Rangers outshot the Seraphs 10-0 in the second half. And
though the ball "went everywhere but into the net,"
said coach Christl, Nordhoff's continuous possession of the ball
demonstrated their dominance in the game.
A strong Ally Taylor, along with Sarah Stoltz, played "outstanding,"
according to Christl. Wingbacks Jenny Lang and Mary Ann Christl
successfully shut down St. Bonny's offensive attack.
Nordhoff will play tomorrow at Rio Mesa, and again this weekend
at the Buena varsity tournament.
