A native of Santa Monica, Calif., Rexroat, is the first Johnson player ever to be invited for a professional soccer tryout abroad. Continue reading

|Summary/Story:||Vista Ridge resumed non-district play laden with injuries Wednesday night against a heavily favored St. Stephens Academy squad. In the opening minutes the Vista Ridge back line was challenged numerous times whereby St. Stephens was moving the ball almost at will.
Vista’s mid-field then met the challenge and stepped up their play with a strong defensive effort led by Vista holding mid-fielder Maddie Hoskins and by center back Brook Owen.
Vista took an early lead at the 19 minute mark via a breakaway down the left flank by freshman winger Erynn Johns who found the junior Vista striker McKenzie Oliver wide open on the back post to take a 1-0 lead. St. Stephens immediately stepped up their passing attack and countered with the equalizing goal minutes later via a well-placed shot by St. Stephens’ striker Arianna Owens with Quinn Murphy assisting, tying it at 1-1.
St. Stephens challenged the Ranger goal consistently throughout the second half only to be denied by the senior Vista Ridge Keeper time after time. Vista rallied a counter attack mid-way through the second half when a thru-ball from Johns resulted in an Oliver one on one with the St Stephens keeper who calmly scored a second time to seal the 2-1 win. St Stephens mounted several late challenges which were dispatched handily by the Vista defense.
Standouts for St. Stephens included strong play from Quinn Murphy, Erin Mikaska and Arianna Owens. Vista Ridge heads into district play boasting 7-3-1 record.
