La Costa Canyon Outpaces Newport Harbor
Newport Harbor – 4
La Costa Canyon – 9
Carlsbad, March 11 – It was a tale of two halves for the Sailors, who arrived late both literally and figuratively.
La Costa Canyon made good on their opportunities in the first half, winning the draw and ground ball battle, controlling the pace of the game, and spreading their scoring around. Five different Mavericks scored in the first sixteen minutes against a listless group of Sailors. The halftime score was 7-0.
But in the second half, after giving up an early goal to spot LCC eight, the visiting Newport Harbor team came to life—winning the draw, connecting passes, exerting defensive pressure up and down the field, and generating goal scoring opportunities. Ultimately, goals from seniors Katie Hendrix (who netted two), Laura Tran, and Sarah Farley earned NHHS the 4-2 second half victory.
