The Mustangs defeated Palos Verdes, 12-10, in the North Division championship match Tuesday.

“Mira Costa is a solid team, with some terrific players,” Foothill coach Jon Fox said. “They’ve won a lot of games together during this past year in club ball and CIF play, so I know they are going to bring a great game.

“Coach Dave Vinci has been at the helm since the start and has been building a great program up there. We actually played our first CIF sanctioned game of lacrosse in 2006 vs. each other, so this has been a championship match long in the makings.”

Fox has been pleased that his squad has been able to remain focused throughout the playoffs, which included Tuesday’s 14-11 victory over Corona del Mar in the Division I South title match.

“I’m extremely proud of the Foothill players and coaches and their hard work and dedication this season,” Fox said, “overcoming losing two of their captains to injury, battling through some gut-wrenching losses, but keeping their focus on becoming a team, finding our own 2010 identity, and having fun while always keeping our three goals at our forefront.”

Those goals were a league title, an Orange County crown and a Southern California title, Fox said.

The players are excited about going for a Southern California title.

“I want to win it,” Foothill’s Eric Adamson said after the Knights won the Orange County crown.

Adamson scored five goals in Foothill’s win over Corona del Mar on Tuesday.
