Varsity Field Hockey Wins Against El Capitan


Elizabeth Fitzgerald, Staff Writer

In the last home league game of the season, the Varsity Girl’s Field Hockey team won at home against El Capitan.

The game took place on Friday, Nov. 3, and the final score was 2-0. Both teams put up a good fight, but in the end, Helix pulled through and took the win. 

The first goal was scored by Junior Sadie Neville in the first half of the game.

Then, in the second half of the game, Camryn Jonilonis, sophomore, scored another point, raising the score to 2-0.

Throughout the rest of the game, the players made sure to keep their lead. The remainder of the game was filled with many failed attempts to score on Helix. Goalie Jannet Hernandez had many good blocks throughout the game.

In the last few minutes of the game, Camryn Jonilonis was injured and had to rest for the remainder of the game. This upset some parents because the referee did not call a penalty on the player who caused her injury.

The game was also very interesting to watch from the stands.

As Jake Stewart, a junior who attended the event, put it, “The game was very exciting to watch. The girls played hard and gave a lot of effort, and they got a solid win.”

Within their league, Varsity has been undefeated with a record of ten wins and no losses. Overall, they have won thirteen games throughout the season. 

They are playing in Division I CIF and their first game against Valley Center will happen on Saturday, Nov. 11.

Update: Helix won the game against Valley Center with a final score of 3-1. They will advance to play Mission Vista on Nov. 14.
