CORONA DEL MAR — Noah Molnar picked a great time to have his highest scoring game of the season.
The sophomore midfielder scored five goals to help lead the Corona del Mar High boys' lacrosse team to a 13-4 nonleague victory over Back Bay rival Newport Harbor at CdM Saturday morning. It was the first time the teams met in the inaugural year of lacrosse being a CIF sport at both schools.
"It was a little special because it was Battle of the Bay," said Molnar, who played defensive back for the CdM football team. "It felt good to beat them and know that we are champions in the Battle of the Bay. It felt good to beat them in both of my sports [football and lacrosse] this year."
