CdM adds to streak

Sea Kings top University for 37th straight win in Pacific Coast League play.

"They are the kings," said Gaynor, who saw his defense give up goals to 11 Sea Kings. "When I was in high school, we would play teams like that and they would represent and we would want to emulate [them].

"They have earned everything they've gotten. They have the pedigree. We want to be there."

The Trojans have a ways to go before they can compete with CdM, which improved to 12-3 overall.

The Sea Kings came into the contest hungry for a victory after dropping two big nonleague matches. The losses were to two of the state's giants, Foothill and Rancho Bernardo of San Diego, which are ranked No. 8 and No. 2, respectively, by laxpower.com.

CdM lost Friday at Rancho Bernardo, 11-3.

"Glad we scheduled them," Mix said. "They make you pay for your mistakes and we made a sufficient number of them."

With the U.S. Lacrosse Orange County Southern Section Division I playoffs around the corner, CdM is trying to correct its miscues and gain momentum.

The Sea Kings have two more nonleague matches left before the postseason begins. Mix wants his players to experience a couple of more competitive games before then.

The Sea Kings surely will on Wednesday, when they play St. Margaret's, ranked ninth in the state.

The two programs were supposed to play last week at Newport Harbor, where CdM plays home games. But Mix said the stadium's lights were not working. The game will now be at St. Margaret's at 7 p.m., as the Sea Kings lost the home-field advantage because of the postponement.

"It's a huge game for both teams. The winner likely gets a first-round bye in the Orange County playoffs," said Mix, whose team has won three of the last four meetings vs. the Tartans.
