Posted on

3/21/18: Newport Harbor took down the previously undefeated Esperanza Aztecs 15-10 at home on Tuesday night. After falling behind 0-1, the Sailors regrouped strongly to reel off 6 consecutive goals, on route to a 9-4 halftime advantage. Strong mid-field play by the trio of Joelle Rothbard, Caroline Farley and Delaney Knipp, was complimented by the return of Ella Kenney (2 goals), and a goal a piece by seniors Kobe Richardson and Lysie Kenney.

The defensive unit, who has been working hard on their slides, cut off many Aztec drives. Paris Kozlowski, Zoe Palmquist and Elise Skytte all made strong end to end runs to stabilize the transition, which lead to a number of successful possessions. J. Rothbard (4 goals) and Farley (3 goals and a assist) led the offensive production, along with Delaney Knipp, who was super crafty the entire night, and tossed in 3 pretty goals as well.
