DH (the JSerra Catholic club team) defeated Mission (the [SD] club team) in the title game of the Boys Elite Division, 8-2, to wrap up the 2013 Lacrosse Festival held at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, Calif. DH finished the tournament undefeated at 6-0.

The West Coast FCA Orange Elite also finished unbeaten at 5-0 for the tournament, but failed to qualify for the title game due to a thin margin tie breaker won by Mission (goals against). The FCA West Coast team was comprised of players from St. Margaret’s Episcopal, San Clemente HS, Tesoro HS, El Toro HS and Huntington Beach HS as well as a few players from San Diego County and Santa Rosa.

DH was one of many Orange County-based teams competing in the festival which featured top boys and girls teams.

In the High School Division, West Coast FCA White went undefeated (5-0) before advancing to the playoffs to face Team Panos (Ventura County) in the semifinals. FCA White won a hard-fought 4-3 decision before advancing to face Blue Chip NorCal East Bay 9/10 in the finals. FCA White came up just short, falling 10-6.

In the 3/4 Playoffs, West Coast FCA 3/4 took third place by routing Wahoos in the consolation game, 11-2. West Coast FCA lost to Mad Dog in the semifinals, 6-4.
