GAME RECAP | 03/08 VS MATER DEI
Newport Harbor 5
Mater Dei 15
Sailors Fall to Monarchs
Although they came out with guns blazing, as senior captain Rylie Siegfried took the opening draw and went straight to cage for a goal at the 24:50 mark, the visiting Sailors came out careless in the first half and ran up an insurmountable deficit to Mater Dei. After posting this 1-0 lead, Newport Harbor let Mater Dei find defensive seams and exploit defensive gaps, as the home team ran the score to 6-1 before the visitors could respond—again on a hard drive from Siegfried (who also pulled down four draws).
Although the Tars were down by nine at half, 13-4, they made their adjustments and refused to relent; they played a near-even second half. Final score: 15-5. Junior midfielder Sarah Farley broke the seal on her 2016 season with a goal. Sophomore Adena Rothbard controlled three draws.
