Bronco Varsity Girls Soccer

Bishop Girls Varsity Soccer at the Eagle Cup

Bishop varsity girls soccer played at the Eagle Cup in Lancaster this weekend, December 5 and 6th. This is a two Saturday tournament so they play again next Saturday.   Bishop lost their first game 4-1 to a very good school from Pasadena; Maranatha High School. The goal scorer was Kailyn Boxley.  Bishop only had two shots on target during the game, the Maranatha team had great ball control and were able to keep possession the majority of the game.

The second game was against Community Charter from the LA school district.  Bishop lost 2-1 with their one goal coming from Senior Midfielder Alicia Campos. This was a particularly exciting goal for Alicia as she had surgery this summer and has been working hard to get back to her original form.
