Huntington Beach – The Edison girls lacrosse team played their first home game in program history against Canyon of Anaheim Tuesday night. The Chargers did not disappoint their hometown fans, beating the Comanches 5-3 in a tilt between two new CIF programs.
Edison struck early and often as they took a 3-0 lead in the first half and eventually led 5-1 in the second half. The Comanches chipped away at the lead with two straight free position goals, only trailing 5-3 with eight minutes left to go.
But the Chargers were able to hang on with that amount of time, as Edison coach Rob Hendrix had Atencio run the clock down by running around in circles on the offensive end.
