Girls soccer: Mesa, Aliso Niguel fire blanks

December 08, 1999

ALISO VIEJO - Costa Mesa high girls' soccer team needed strong

defense and flawless goaltending in Tuesday's nonleague matchup and

judging by the 0-0 result, the Mustangs got what they needed.

Margaret Landeros had 14 saves for the Mustangs (2-0-2), while the

defensive play of Katie Roche, Sara Smallcomb and May Powers rose to the

challenge of the ever-charging Aliso Niguel (3-0-1) offense.

"That was one of the best goaltending games I've seen in quite a


while," Coach Dan Johnston said. "We really did a good job of using a

swarming style of defense against their offense."

The Mustangs will continue play as they host Laguna Hills Thursday at

3:15 p.m.
