CORONA DEL MAR — The weather was cool, even misty at times late Saturday afternoon at Corona del Mar High.
This did not matter to the members of the CdM girls' lacrosse team, who wore eye black under their eyes. It's not something the Sea Kings normally do, but then again it's not every day they play rival Newport Harbor in the Battle of the Bay.
"It's a Harbor special," CdM junior Molly Rovzar said of the eye black.
By the end of the game, the Sea Kings had shown just how special their team is this season. They dominated play, earning a 24-6 victory and their third straight Battle of the Bay win.
Buoyed by an early-season league victory over perennial powerhouse Beckman, Corona del Mar (9-2) is surging this season. But the Sailors (3-10) stayed close early Saturday. Miranda McFarland's goal brought Newport Harbor within 4-3 with 15:30 left in the first half.
