Historic run continues for CdM girls

Sea Kings rally back to stun Beckman, setting up OC title match against top-seeded Los Alamitos.

Junior defender Kylie Mulvaney, who tied with Rovzar for the team lead with four ground balls and caused three turnovers, said CdM never panicked, even after the early deficit.

"I just had this feeling that we had to come back," Mulvaney said. "It was going to happen."

Kacie Kline had two goals for CdM, Sabrina Smith and Kendall Mulvaney scored once each and Cassidy Napolitano had an assist. Senior keeper Sarah Hostetler made 12 saves.

Junior Hanna Leonard led Beckman with three goals. Corona del Mar was still able to avenge its 14-8 loss to the Patriots on April 25, the one that denied CdM an outright league title.


Next comes another chance to avenge an earlier loss. Los Alamitos defeated CdM, 14-7, in the Beckman tournament on March 17. However, that game was played in very rainy conditions.

"I'm from Oregon, and the game was the gnarliest rain I've ever experienced," Vislocky said. "I'm excited to play on dry land, and be able to do our thing."

Whatever happens Wednesday, the program continues to grow and thrive.

"I really think [the No. 7 seed] worked to our advantage," Gabby Smith said. "It totally did. Working from down to up is a lot easier, you know? ... Seeing the team grow is just amazing."
