High School Lacrosse: Western U.S. #2 Carondelet Girls Lacrosse Defeats #1 Amador Valley 9-7 In Overtime On May 24 To Win CIF-North Coast Section Girls Lacrosse Championship
Cali Castagnola scored the game-winning goal late in the first overtime period to help lift Carondelet High School to a 9-7 win over host Amador Valley in the final of the North Coast Section Division I girls lacrosse championship on Friday night.
“There was so much adrenaline,” Castagnola said. “It’s kind of hard because everything is going through your head, and you’re thinking. You kind of just go as the goalie is going.”
The Cougars (21-3) jumped to a 4-1 lead late in the first half, scoring four consecutive goals. Castagnola had two of them, one off a pass from Corinne Lafayette, the other off a pass from Morgan Castelein. Castagnola also scored in the second half for four goals on the night.
However, the top-seeded Dons (21-2) hung tough, coming back to tie the game at 6-6. Castagnola’s goal made it 7-6 with six minutes 18 seconds left. Carondelet then got the ball back with about four minutes left in the game, and decided to play keepaway and try to run out the clock.
Bad decision. With 1:20 to go, Hannah Stapp forced a turnover for Amador Valley and after calling two timeouts, the Dons were left with 35 seconds to play. With nine seconds left, Cambi Cukar was fouled. She set up right in front of the net on the restart and beat Katie Merritt for the tying goal.
