Junior midfielder Shelby Brown called the end of the Corona del Mar High girls' soccer season "crazy," and nobody who saw the games would argue.
Two tight wins on the road at the end of league helped the Sea Kings win their fourth straight outright league title. In the first, CdM had to survive a last-minute, penalty-kick attempt against Beckman. In the second, the Sea Kings had to rally from a two-goal deficit at Northwood in the final 20 minutes.
CdM then earned two shootout wins in its first two games of the CIF Southern Section Division 1 playoffs, against Fountain Valley and Upland. The Sea Kings fell to Foothill in the quarterfinals to end the memorable run.
"It was crazy, and it was really fun," Brown said. "I've never experienced any games like that before. These were probably the craziest games I've [played in]."
The games weren't the only crazy thing about the second half of the Sea Kings' season. The play of Brown was equally insane.
