Newport Harbor – 14
Temecula Valley – 4
April 20, Costa Mesa – The Sailors jumped out to an early lead Thursday against Temecula and never looked back. Senior attacker Heather Roberts opened scoring in the first minute with a strong crease roll. Seniors Sarah Farley and Jessica Woodruff struck again for the Sailors, and in just over three minutes, the hosting Tars were up by three. The Sailor ride forced the visitors to earn every inch of ground, and while the Golden Bears were able to get to the cage, sophomore Jade Rettig in the Newport goal was up to the challenge; she finished the first half with seven saves on eight shots. TVHS was able to end the shutout with a goal from senior Makayla Munoz, assisted by senior Samra Cain
With Woodruff adding one more off a pretty feed from senior Katie Hendrix, Senior Laura Tran converting a beautiful free position, and freshman Caroline Farley netting a transition goal, the Sailors earned a cushy 7-1 halftime lead.
In the second half, the NHHS ride clamped down even harder, and the defensive unit of seniors Hayden Allen, Jill Rosten, and Amber Skytte, and sophomores Elise Skytte, Delaney Knipp, and Ella Kenney went into beast mode. Yet despite earning only six shots on goal, Temecula sophomores Holly Olvera and Jade West scored three. But the Sailor attack, led by a second half hat trick from sophomore Mariana Miller, overpowered the Bears and ensured the ten-goal victory.
Farley senior dominated the stat sheet with four goals, four ground balls, three draw controls, and five caused turnovers. Hendrix added a goal on a nimble free position drive and finished with two assists, three ground balls, and two draw controls. Tran also put one away for the Sailors to add to her three draw controls, four ground balls, and two caused turnovers. Allen led the Sailors with five ground balls—a number of which were on gritty defensive plays. Rettig finished with eleven saves (73.3%).
