“That makes our season.”

The victory raised the Sea Hawks’ record to 10-2 overall and 6-0 in the Bay League. With a two-game lead over the Mustangs (6-5, 4-2), they are on track to become the first school to win three Bay League titles in the area’s brief history of girls lacrosse.

“We lost a lot of seniors, but the girls coming on the team have stepped up,” Field said. “We’re still getting better.”

Senior Julia Denney added three goals and three assists. Sophomore Allison Kotzbach and junior Brittany Ross each had three goals.

“We’re a stronger team now than we were earlier in the season,” Kotzbach said. “I know once I had some time playing with everyone I got a lot more comfortable.”

For Mira Costa, Redondo’s reputation as the best girls lacrosse team in the area made the defeat a little easier to swallow. The Mustangs were encouraged by the way they rallied from a 14-7 deficit, cutting it to 14-11 with 9:09 left.
