Girls' soccer blanks Ottawa

Mendota’s girls’ soccer team captured a hard-earned 1-0 win at Ottawa on March 24.

Crystal Garcia scored for MHS in the first half, and then the squad used a great defensive performance from Flor Delao, Kaley Siemer and goalie Naitzy Garcia to preserve the one-goal lead.
