Girls Varsity Soccer · Spartans Fall to Lobos in Final Minutes

The Spartans battled with Langham Creek last Friday in an intense game. Although the Spartans continually took the lead, the defense could not hold back the Lobos. The first Spartan goal was scored by Adamari Acosta with a one-touch left-footed shot off a perfect cross from Kendal White. The Lobos scored within the next five minutes to tie the score. In the second half, Acosta found the back of the net off a follow-up shot from a goalkeeper deflection. Langham again tied the score at 2-2. Abril Olivo slid to send a high cross into the box, which junior Alexia Santos finished with a gorgeous header. With just a few minutes remaining, the Spartan sweeper was injured and two Spartan defenders received cards. The Lobos fought back as the Spartans scrambled to fill holes in the line-up. The final score ended 3-4.
