In another outstanding performance, the San Diego Premier Elite field hockey team won its Under 16 pool and finished a close second in its Under 19 pool at the Stanford 7v7 Tournament recently in Palo Alto.

Coached by Torrey Pines head coach Katy Moyneur and former U.S. National Team player Kristi Gannon Fisher, the Carmel Valley-based team went undefeated at the U16 level, chalking up four wins against no defeats.

Even more impressive was their play at the U19 level, as the SDP freshmen chalked up three wins and only one defeat against the older girls. They came within two minutes and one goal of taking the pool championship and finished second on the basis of goal difference. Torrey Pines freshmen Gabi Jimenez and Shannon Yogerst led the team in scoring at Stanford with seven goals each; Gia Silahian (TP) and Tatiana Arias (Fallbrook) chipped in six goals apiece.

Farah Farjood (TP), Rylie Pope (TP), Kyra Kent (Scripps Ranch) and Nina Randolph (La Costa Canyon) anchored an SDP defense that allowed just six goals in eight games. Keeper Laurel Stockwell (Valhalla) logged four shutouts.

Next up is the Play for Pink field hockey tournament at Vista High School this weekend, during which SDP Elite will take on some of San Diego County’s top U16 teams including Mavericks (Encinitas), Coastal Clash (Carmel Valley), Hot Stix (Vista) and Longhorns (Vista).
