With its loss to Oxnard on Feb. 15, the Mammoth High School Girls Soccer Team is out of the playoffs and their season is finished.
“Oxnard was fast with precise passing,” said Coach Tom Cage.
The game was played in Mammoth, and #11 Sandy Grimaldo, scored Mammoth’s only two goals of the game.
“We had glimmers of hope with connecting passes, but it was too little too late,” said Cage, who played 19 girls throughout the game in an effort to find the right combination to combat the speed and accuracy of Oxnard.
The final score was 7-2, leaving the MHS girls with a season record of 8-5-1.
Cage did point out that the game against Oxnard was extremely clean. “There was not one yellow card and only three indirect kicks were allowed,” he said.
Season highlights included tying the game against Desert Christian and beating Bishop, twice.
Cage thanked all the parents that helped out this season, and his assistant Meghan Bair. He also thanked Shana Stapp for her fundraising efforts.
