Eva Moore

Written by Mei Bailey, Journalist

Eva Moore is this year’s varsity soccer goalkeeper — and she’s only a freshman. Before the current season, she had never played goalie, in fact she hadn’t even played soccer since third grade. However, in need of a new goalkeeper, head coach Frank Giraldo asked Eva last summer to step up to the challenge. In her second game as goalie, Eva didn’t let the opposing team score at all, keeping the Breakers at a 7-0 shutout over Monterey. “I wasn’t expecting a spot on varsity,” Eva says. But, with a solid spot on the team, she has new goals for the season. “I want to improve my goalie skills, such as being more confident in what I’m doing and taking charge. I just want to have a great season, and make it a great season for everyone else on my team.” As the guardian player for what may be many years to come, Eva keeps the future of Breaker soccer looking bright.
