Newport Harbor gives up second-half goal and loses to a Warriors team it had beaten in three of four previous meetings.NEWPORT BEACH -- The Newport Harbor High girls' soccer team, which had won three of the last four meetings with Woodbridge, fell to the Warriors, 1-0, on Tuesday.
The Sailors found openings throughout the game with passes and good field positioning, but were unable to capitalize on their 17 shots compared to the Warriors' seven.
In the first half, both teams went scoreless, despite relentless attempts by Newport Harbor to take advantage of the wind.
"We rallied up defensively," said Woodbridge Coach Gabe Smith. "It's hard to play against the wind, and we just hung in there."
