Foothill-Santa Ana will likely provide matchup problems for its opposition for most of the season. Foothill spent much of the preseason working on almost every nuance of the game to get ready for the tough competition in Southern California. The hard work has paid off as the Knights opened the season with three straight wins and have not allowed more than five goals in a game. Coach Kaylee Navarrete likes what she has seen so far from her team. “The girls are focused this year,” Na varrete said. “We have been working hard on key dynamics such as a fast transition, draw control, and a strong redefend. We have a fast team which helps us tremendously.
