Corona del Mar kicked off their season with a bang, taking down University High School, 19-1.
The start of CdM’s season last night against Uni leaves only one team in our Top 20 to have yet to play a game, that being our #1 St. Margaret’s who plays tomorrow night. University has struggled in the past and this game was no contest for the Sea Kings from the initial whistle.
Sophomore Jordan Greenhall led all scorers with five goals and two assists and juniors Noah Howe and Nino Chavez both had hat tricks and four assists each. Ben Palitz, Jack Denning, and Kaden Ebbinga netted two as well.
CdM’s defense was just as impressive as Dane Coop and Cole Campbell had takeaway after takeaway. Sophomore face off sensation Jason Simaan never let Uni touch the ball by winning 15 faceoffs.
The Sea Kings cruised to an early season victory 19-1 and are looking ahead to Texas’ St. Johns on Monday.
