April 30, 2014In a very physical game, Valley Center's girls varsity lacrosse was defeated, but the Lady Jaguars didn't go down quietly. The team as a whole played an incredibly tenacious 60-minute contest with true heart.
It was a great first half, with Savanna Fiehler and Melinda-Riley Olson scoring two goals a piece with an assist from Kaylin Ryan to lead at halftime with a score of 4-3.
VC's Midfielder Bianka Pacheco (#13) is proof that dynamite comes in small packages.
The game was lost in the third quarter when Mission Hills came thundering back. Valley Center lost the draw and was just out scored.
Still in the fight, Savanna Fiehler played strong with determination and just plain grit, scoring three goals and assisting Kaylin Ryan who scored two more goals. Attackers Nina Montejano and Alexandra gave their all to keep possession of the ball by picking up four ground balls each.
Goalie Parrish Toedt had five saves. Midfielder Bianka Pacheco, always playing with her aggressive spirit, was credited with three ground balls, one interception, and three draw controls, proving that dynamite comes in small packages.
Despite their efforts, the Lady Jaguars were defeated. The final score was 9-14.
