Sailors Gang Up on the Wolfpack: Temecula March 28th
Newport Harbor – 13
Great Oak – 4
Temecula, March 28 – Six different players ripped the rope for Newport Harbor in Tuesday’s game. Over the first twenty-four minutes, Great Oak had no answer as the visiting Tars built an eight-goal lead. The Newport ride was in full effect, forcing the hosting Wolfpack to work overtime through the midfield and causing a number of turnovers–including a few exceptional blocks and interceptions from senior captains Katie Hendrix and Sarah Farley.
Great Oak ended the shutout with a nice dodge and shot from Sydney Simpson in the last minute of the half. Newport added one more in the last second to earn the 10-1 halftime lead.
While the hosting Wolfpack was able to mount a more potent offense in the second half and goalie Ashley Fejerang heated up with some monster saves on the relentless Newport attack, it was not enough as the Sailors held tight to their nine-goal lead and finished the game strong.
For NHHS, junior Lysie Kenney scored one off a great high-to-low assist from junior Adena Rothbard, who also put one on the board from a nice re-attack; Farley finished with two, along with four draw controls and four caused turnovers; freshman Caroline Farley, and senior Laura Tran each earned hat tricks, with Tran adding an assist to boot. Hendrix also pounded the cage for a hat trick and added four ground balls to her tally.
