Sommer Larrabee and the Etiwanda Eagles handed the Chino Hills Huskies’ girls soccer team its first Baseline League loss, 1-0.
Larrabee scored the lone goal for the Eagles in the shutout against the Huskies, which also served as their first loss in nine games.
“Everything happened so fast, I remember getting the ball and dribbling the ball a few times,” Larrabee said. “(I) looked at the top left corner, looked back at
the ball and shot it.”
Larrabee felt that the Eagles knew the task at hand prior to the game.
“We knew as a team we needed a positive result from this game,” she said. “We played with everything we had and it showed in the final score.”
Larrabee believes that the outcome of this game serves as a lesson for her team.
“The feeling is indescribable. We knew Chino Hills was going to be a top contender in our league,” she said. “By being their first loss of the season it showed our team what we can accomplish when we play with our hearts on our sleeves. It is a game I am never going to forget.”
The victory ties the Eagles at one game apiece in the head-to-head series with the Huskies, after Etiwanda suffered a 3-1 loss to Chino Hills on Jan. 21 during a three game losing streak.
Chino Hills will finish the season on the road against Los Osos on Feb. 11 while Etiwanda will play Upland.
