EL CENTRO, Calif. – For the third time, Calexico and Central’s girls soccer programs would meet for the Noujaim Cup. The third annual event is named after Nabil Noujaim; who helped institute prep girls soccer in the Imperial Valley.
Coming into this one, Central had taken the first two Noujaim Cup victories and hoping to keep the streak going. The Lady Spartans got off to a great start, as Baylee Vincent cashed in a long distance shot that caught the back of the net, to make it 1 to nil within the games first ten minutes.
This was just minutes after Vincent had failed to capitalize on an up-close scoring chance. Vincent would finish with two goals on the night. A few more key goals and sound defensive play would eventually pave the way for Central’s 4 to nil victory.
