Newport Harbor – 19
Valencia – 4
Costa Mesa, March 16 – The Tars came strong out of the gate, with senior captain Katie Hendrix scoring off a feed from fellow senior Heather Roberts in the first minute of the game. Over the next fifteen minutes, the Sailors build a 10-0 lead before Valencia answered to break the shutout. At halftime, the score was 13-1. The Tigers went on a nice three-goal run in the thick of the second half, but it was too little, too late. The home team got themselves back on track, put a few more goals in the back of the cage, and secured the victory.
For Newport, senior Laura Tran and Hendrix each walked away with five goals. Junior Adena Rothbard netted four, sisters Sarah and Caroline Farley each put two away, and Roberts ended up with one.
