2009 WOMEN’S SOCCER
“We are very optimistic that the quality and depth of the thirteen incoming freshmen will compliment the experience and talent of the twelve sophomores remaining.”
ypress had a tough end to their 2008 season coming just short of the State Tournament for the second season in a row. The Chargers ended their season in a tie losing in penalty kicks in the second round of playoffs against arch-rival Santiago Canyon. This season, Cypress is on a mission to turn things around. Head coaches Randi Martinez and Jill Toda take over the head coaching duties and have high expectations for this season’s squad: Coming off a solid but below expectation 2008 season, the potential for a special 2009 season is very realistic. We are very optimistic that the quality and depth of the thirteen incoming freshmen will compliment the experience and talent of the twelve sophomores remaining. Our sophomore leadership is key to the success of this team. Heading the 2009 sophomore class is captain and First Team OEC selection in 2008, Casey Kiehl. Kiehl led the Chargers in points (28) goals (10) and assists (8). Her impact will be felt on and off the field. Fellow captain and First Team OEC selection Nicole Weil returns to a defense that allowed four goals in 22 regular season matches in 2008. Sophomore transfer Amber Lopez brings a wealth of premier level experience to a midfield that could use the offensive creativity after only scoring 49 regular season goals in 2008 (a program low). In addition to the sophomore class, the Chargers add a thirteen player freshmen class that has depth and talent.
Freshman Vanessa Corona was among CIF leaders scoring 49 goals in 2008 and 64 goals in 2009. This will give the team a dangerous weapon in front of goal. Hina Lilii, a club teammate of Corona, is a physical defender that really impacts a game. Lilii’s ability to defend anywhere on the field is a great option to have. ChristiAna Lang fills a hole in the center back position. Lang, a natural born leader, has the organizational skills to position this talented 2009 Charger squad to a championship level. Four of the five coaches from 2008 return to this season’s staff so the same approach will be taken. The one addition is goalkeeper coach Chris Gomez who brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this already talented staff. With the shortened season, Cypress will play just five pre-conference games starting with a road and home game each before three road games in Northern California. The Chargers will then turn to conference play where they will defend their 2008 championship against one of the most competitive conference teams yet. The marquee rivalry games against the Hawks will take place on October 9th and November 10th where Cypress hopes to avenge their second round playoff loss from last year. The balanced 2009 Charger team will look to improve on last year’s season, contend for a state championship, and live up to the history of success Cypress Women’s Soccer is known for. 2009 WOMEN’S SOCCER
