Prep Roundup: Arroyo Grande’s girls soccer season ends with OT playoff loss to Oaks Christian

The Arroyo Grande High girls soccer team fell in the quarterfinals of the CIF-Southern Section Division 3 playoffs Thursday with a 2-1 overtime loss at Oaks Christian.

After a scoreless first half, Arroyo Grande (18-2-6) lost leading scorer Nadine Reed to an ankle injury and did not have many chances on goal as a result.

Second-seeded Oaks Christian (19-3-1) scored first. Then, the Eagles’ Elizabeth Heyde responded by scoring off a free kick with eight minutes to go in regulation.

However, six minutes into overtime, a loose ball bounced to the feet of an Oaks Christian player, who buried it in the upper corner for the golden goal win and a berth in the divisional semifinals.

Sarah Doughty had a season-high 12 saves for the Eagles.

The Arroyo Grande doubles teams of Derek Lakowske and Cole Laughton won 6-3, 6-2, 6-0, and Jamieson O’Mar and Skylar Zirtolo won their final two sets 6-4, 6-4.
