Capistrano Valley Christian fielded its first full girls soccer team since 2008 on November 28, when the Eagles took the pitch against Classical Academy and came away with a 1-0 non-league win.

Freshman forward Lauren Messore scored two goals for the Eagles (1-1) and Rachel Matranga contributed with an assist.

On December 5 the Eagles suffered their first loss of the season, falling 3-0 to visiting Mission Vista. Mission Vista got off to a quick start by scoring two goals inside the first five minutes of play. Capistrano Valley Christian goalie Mia Wallace tallied 36 saves in the contest.

Up next, the Eagles will host Tri City Christian on December 12 at the Rancho Capistrano Soccer fields at 3:15 p.m.
