Page 16 'PCI)T& 1 , r, - September 12, 2012 Girls can't find net in loss to Estacada The score was 5-0, but Coach Ramiro Santana said Sweet.Home's girls soccer team's loss to Estacada could have gone differently if a few shots hadn't bounced off the posts and a few other breaks had gone the Huskies' way. The season opener on Thurs- day, Sept. 6, gave many of the the rebuilding Huskies a taste of high school varsity. "We have 15 to 17 new faces on this team," Santana said. "I lost 15 kids from last year. This is to- tally a rebuilding year." Sweet Home came out firing against the Rangers, hitting the post six times in the first 20 minutes. "I guess it was not our day," said Santana. "The only good thing they had was their goalie. She was the lifesaver for their team." The Huskies also missed two penalty kicks, one by Katie Virtue and the other by Ashley Wickline. When the referee gave Wick- line her penalty shot, Santana said it happened too fast for him to send another player to take the kick and she lined one to the goalie. "We had our chances," he said. "We would have won if we had scored. We were more on their side than our side throughout the game." The futile effort eventually got to his team mentally and that's when the visitors made their shots. "You're shooting, shoting, and you don't score. The mentality starts io get after you," he said. Santana said the Huskies will be working on their shooting and he plans to use the next two non- league games, at Central on Tues- day and at Taft on Thursday, to develop a varsity line-up in prepa- raron for the league opener versus La Pine at home on Thursday, Sept. 20. The junior varsity team trailed Estacada 3-0 before evening the score and eventually losing 5-4. "Both teams could have done that," he said. "We certainly had omr opportunities. It was just not there." Defenders Allison Wickline, center, and )emi Stratman, left, close in on an Estacada opponent. Estacada jumps out to early lead, win over ycung Huskies Estacada 7, Sweet Home 0 The Huskies boys soccer team took a little while to settle down, but once they did they slowed down a tough Estacada attack. -Trailing 6-0 at halftime on the road Thursday against Estacada, they gave up only one more goal on the second half. Out of the gate, the kids were working hard, but the team was experimenting, moving people around the field, said Coach Ryan Regrutto. "The team we played against is a very good team, very tough for us to match up. They put up a good effort. They didn't quit. They didn't let down." They found the little mistakes that cost them three goals in five minutes at one point, he said, and they'll be able to fix those mistakes quickly as long as the team is will- ing to work hard. The Huskies athleticism is decent, and their soccer skills are ahead of where they've been in the past, Regrutto said. "It's a different mindset." The Huskies found ' their groove in the second half with a focus on defense. Patric Dishaw moved to de- fense from forward, making a big difference in the momentum. "He's one of those kids that's gol a lot of raw talent," Regrutto sail. "He worked well with the guys tha were already back there." Goalie Gabe Redick got hurt, an4 Nick Rodgers filled in and did a tremendous job, Regrutto said, adding to the great job the rest of the defense was doing. On the other end of the field, "wehad very few chances on goal," Regrutto said, but the defense came through in the end. Regrutto is optimistic about his team, he said. "I think we start- ed feeling more comfortable with the speed of the game." Few of the Huskies have much experience at varsity speeds, and that's tough to simulate in practice until they have that experience, he said. With that game, they're set- fling in and figuring things out. "I'm really excited for this season," he said. The junior varsity tied Esta- cada 1-1, Regrutto said. Estacada scored a goal in the first 10 to 15 minutes. After that, the Huskies played excellent soccer. They had the ad- vantage, more chances and more possession than Estacada, bounc- ing the ball off the post a few times. The whole team played well. Egan Shamek knocked in the Huskies' goal with about 10 min- utes left, tying the game. Sabrina Davis corrals the ball as an Estacada player closes in.

We're building up depth. Good things are coming out of this. Down the stretch this is build- ing up our depth, which is what we need to do. Much as I want to win every game, the preseason is about development. "Our goal now is to finish the pre-season 2-2, which is tough with Central, but doable. None of the teams we've scheduled during the preseason have been a cake- walk." Banks 27, Sweet Home 13 Sweet Home 0 7 0 6-13 Banks 14 0 6 7-27 First Quarter B" 94 kickoff return.
