CORONA DEL MAR — Lindsey Luke said she'd never been in a penalty-kick shootout that went that long.
There were 20 penalty kicks taken Tuesday afternoon at Corona del Mar High. Luke guessed right on a couple of Los Alamitos' attempts, but couldn't get to the ball in the corner.
Luke, the Sea Kings' senior goalie, had made more than her fair share of saves in regulation. She kept a cool hand throughout. On the Griffins' last attempt, all she had to do was look up.
The ball flew over the goal and Luke went to celebrate with her teammates. The Sea Kings survived, 8-7 in penalty kicks, after playing to a 1-1 tie in regulation and overtime in the CIF Southern Section Division I second-round match.
Corona del Mar will play at top-seeded San Clemente in a Division I quarterfinal Thursday. San Clemente topped Yucaipa, 3-0, in another second-round match.
