COSTA MESA — The Harbor Day girls enjoyed a team barbecue Friday, scrimmaging against the boys and relaxing with friends and family.
Harbor Day continued the party on the pitch Saturday morning as the fifth- and sixth-grade silver division girls kept its undefeated record — and a bid for back-to-back championships — intact with a 3-0 win against Pomona at the Pilot Cup.
"Our defense has been very strong," coach Dave DiGiovanni said. "They haven't allowed a goal yet."
Pomona nearly scored a goal in the opening seconds after a well-placed cross by Elizabeth Esquivel, but Harbor Day's goalkeeper Sammy Pickell made a key save.
Harbor Day's Kaylin Flaxman, however, didn't let a well-placed corner kick go to waste as she scored the team's first goal that snuck below the middle crossbar.
Assistant coach Leslie Montgomery said she felt happy for Flaxman because she worked hard to start after being on the B-team last year.
