The most obvious individual statistic in soccer is the number of goals scored.
Nine days ago, Newport Harbor High senior midfielder Natalie Swift scored one of the biggest ones of the season for the Sailors' girls' soccer team. She connected in stoppage time off a pass from junior Josie Jogwe, giving Newport Harbor a dramatic 2-1 Sunset League victory and stunning the Oilers on their home field.
Swift said she thinks it's her fourth goal of the season. Coach Larry Draluck isn't a big statistics guy, so he isn't so sure.
"Suffice it to say, she's scored some big goals," Draluck said.
But then there's Swift's passing, like the assist she gave to fellow senior Madeline Storch on Thursday. It was the game-tying goal in what ended up as a 2-1 victory that kept Newport Harbor tied for first place in league.
Then there's her leadership, as a four-year varsity player and one of four senior captains.
