Canyon Crest Academy JV Field Hockey wins Otay Ranch Invitational


The CCA JV field hockey team took part in the 3rd Otay Ranch Invitational on Sept. 1. They finished their pool in first position, having comfortably won their games against Del Norte and Bonita Vista. The girls went into the semi-final against Point Loma as number one seed and won 3-0. The final game against San Pasqual was a rematch of the last two years, where CCA narrowly lost against the Escondido school both times. After an exciting game in the sweltering heat, the result was a 0-0 draw and went into a sudden death penalty shootout. Under immense pressure, Courtney Chaplin flicked the ball solidly into the goal and San Pasqual’s penalty was saved by goalkeeper, Shannon Perrone. The girls showed excellent teamwork throughout the tournament and deserved their win.
