NEWPORT BEACH — A CIF playoff berth is an accomplishment for the Newport Harbor High girls' soccer team.
The Sailors haven't made the postseason since 2005, and they're close this year.
"I think our magic number is one," Coach Larry Draluck said Tuesday night.
Unfortunately for the Sailors, Draluck can no longer use that same number when describing his team's Sunset League standing.
Los Alamitos sophomore forward Raya Young made sure of that, scoring twice in the second half as the Griffins won the battle for first place, 2-0, at Davidson Field.
The Sailors (6-9-3, 5-2 in league) drop to third as Los Alamitos and Edison are both 6-1 in league. Young stunned the hosts, as her goals came within a three-minute span.
In the 49th minute, she was there to clean up after a shot from the left by Callie Taylor caromed off sliding Newport Harbor goalie Emily Browne.
