Northern California High School Girls Lacrosse Profile: Monte Vista Girls Lacrosse (23-0) Sr. Midfielder Lauren Goerz Is Selected As East Bay Athletic League (EBAL) MVP After Leading Mustangs To #1 Ranking In California

The Monte Vista High girls lacrosse team needed a lift. The Mustangs’ chance to win a second consecutive North Coast Section championship hung in the balance, and along with it the opportunity to finish the season undefeated and as the top-ranked team in the state. 

Monte Vista Girls Lacrosse Sr. Middiev Lauren Goerz scored 55 goals and 24 assists in 2010 and was selected as the East Bay Athletic League's MVP. She will attend Cal Berkeley in the fall.

And as she had done all year, senior Lauren Goerz provided that lift.

The Mustangs went 23-0, and just as they did in the NCS title game, won quite a few games in come-from-behind fashion, which was different from the 2009 team that won the school’s first EBAL and NCS titles.

Northern California High School Girls Lacrosse: Monte Vista Girls Lacrosse Defeats Amador Valley 12-7; California Girls Lacrosse Defeats Carondelet 17-11

montevistagirlslazMonte Vista 12, Amador Valley 7: For the first half it looked as if the fifth-seeded Dons (14-9) might be poised for the upset as they built a 3-2 lead.

But in the second half, the same Mustangs team that went unbeaten in the East Bay Athletic League and didn’t lose to an NCS team, took over for the 12-7 win.

Monte Vista (18-4) scored six goals in the first six minutes to take an 8-3 lead, grabbing complete control of the game the rest of the way.

“In the first half they played a little scared, and I told them to let it go and just play,” Monte Vista coach Dearborn David said. “We were just very timid, and in the second half they didn’t seem scared.”

In the second half Lauren Goerz won every draw, leading to numerous possessions.

Goerz also scored two goals, while Megan Robinson scored four, with Jillian Bush and Aimee Dewan scoring four apiece as the Mustangs will play in Saturday’s championship match at 1 p.m. vs. California.

Amador received two goals apiece from Teresa Li, Amelia Major and Jessica Daut.

California 17, Carondelet 11: Jocelyn Algieri came out swinging for the No 2 seed Grizzlies, scoring her first of seven goals just 1 minute 28 seconds into this semifinal game.

“Before the game I was talking to myself,” Algieri said. “I was telling myself I needed to focus and do it for the team.”

Algieri helped put the Grizzlies (16-6) on top, scoring three goals in the final five minutes for the first halt to put her team up 8-4.

During her seven-goal game Algieri didn’t work alone, getting some assistant from Corinne Kantor on three goals.

“It’s just chemistry over the past few years,” said Kantor of playing with Algieri. “We get along well on and off the field.”

Kantor ended the game with four assists and four saves, one of which was assisted by Algieri.

For the No. 3-seeded Cougars (15-7) a late charge wasn’t enough to overcome a tough Grizzlies team. Trailing 14-8, the Cougars went on a 4-1 run to bring the game to 15-11 with three minutes left, but the Grizzlies held strong the final minutes of the game. Emily DeSimone led the Cougars with five goals and one assist.


Northern California High School Boys Lacrosse: Monte Vista Boys Lacrosse Defeats Amador Valley 12-10 And Advances To Championship Game With De La Salle On Saturday

monte vista boys lacrosseFor three quarters, the Monte Vista and Amador Valley high school boys lacrosse teams played crisp, sharp and intense North Coast Section playoff lacrosse; and heading into the fourth quarter, it didn’t matter.

Heading into the final frame tied 6-6, all that mattered was who won that quarter, and it was the second-seeded Mustangs who prevailed, 12-10, advancing to Saturday’s championship match at 3 p.m. Saturday at Dublin High against De La Salle, which beat Berkeley 16-4.

“In the fourth quarter, we took over on groundballs,” Monte Vista coach Mike Lambrecht said. “For the first three quarters, we were getting beat, but in the fourth we turned it around.”

John Solomon also played a large part in turning things around as the Mustangs (16-6) erased a 6-4 deficit by scoring six goals in a row, a pair to end the third and four to start the fourth.

“He keyed it up for us,” Lambrecht said of Solomon. “We got two quick goals off the face-off, and that shifted momentum.”

Solomon scored three goals in a row, which included a pair within 24 seconds of each other at the beginning of the fourth.

“We just had a lot of drive and a lot of heart heading into that fourth quarter,” Solomon said. “We were realizing that we didn’t want this to be it for our season, and we started dominating on ground balls. That turned the game around, and in the fourth quarter I didn’t see one that we didn’t get.”

The No. 3 Dons (17-4) led 3-2 athalftime and scored the second half’s first two goals to race out to a three-goal lead but couldn’t keep from losing to the Mustangs for the third time this season.
