CASL honors slain teen

Posted December 15, 2012

— Players, parents and coaches in the Capital Area Soccer League (CASL) honored a player's memory Saturday. Every game on the CASL schedule was stopped 10 minutes in for a moment of silence for Larissa Estrada followed by a standing ovation. 

Estrada, a forward and mid-fielder for 98 CASL Chelsea, wore the number 10. She died last weekend when her father, Edwin Estrada, shot her before killing himself.

"Larissa definitely was somebody who had as much passion for the game and her teammates and her team than anyone I've been around," her coach, Damon Nahas, told WRAL News.
