Lady Lions, Tigers open SCL soccer campaign

The Sonoma County League soccer season got underway this week
for the Lady Lions and Tigers, with mixed results.
Lady Tigers forge 1-1 overtime tie with

The Lady Tigers varsity soccer team (3-4-1, 0-0-1) sent a strong
message to the rest of the SCL on Monday, when they forged a
hard-fought, 1-1 overtime tie with Windsor. The visiting Tigers
outplayed the two-time defending champs throughout a very physical
first half, best illustrated by three yellow cards issued on
Windsor players. Breanna Varnadore put Analy on the board late in
the first half, scoring on a long throw-in and sending the Tigers
to the break up 1-0.
Windsor turned it up a notch in an intensely contested second
half, as Windsor tallied the tying goal and just missed a couple of
other scoring opportunities. The teams continued to battle through
a pair of ten-minute overtime periods, with outstanding play from
midfielder Lea DeLuca and a near goal by Jeanna Cadby providing the
highlights for Analy. The game ended deadlocked at one-apiece.
³Both teams are young and we might have seen the beginning of a
rivalry for next year¹s league crown,² noted Analy coach Joseph
The Lady Tigers travel to Petaluma this Saturday, Sept. 16. Game
times starting with the JV are 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Next Wednesday,
Sept. 20, Analy will entertain Sonoma (5/7 p.m.) on West County
girl¹s soccer night. All girls wearing their soccer jerseys will be
admitted free.
El Mo blanked by Casa Grande
The Lady Lions (2-3, 0-1) capped a solid pre-season last week
with a 4-0 shutout win over visiting Middletown, but ran into a
buzzsaw at Casa Grande on Friday, falling 5-0. The undefeated Lady
Gauchos (8-0, 1-0) showed why they¹re considered the favorites this
season in the SCL race, flashing their considerable team speed. The
Lady Lions JV squad also fell 5-0 to the Gauchos.
