Beats for First Place in Ocean League

The upstart Eagles, in only their second year as a full-fledged CIF program, beat defending Ocean League champion 14-9 on Wednesday to take control of first place in the Ocean League.

El Segundo took control late in what had been a tight game throughout. The score was 3-3 after one quarter and then 7-7 before the Eagles began pulling away. They led 11-8 entering the final quarter.

Four players scored at least three goals to pace El Segundo: Attacks , a sophomore, and , a junior; and middies — and brothers — , a senior who scored four goals, and , a freshman.

El Segundo (7-3, 4-0 Ocean) won its fourth game in a row. It also likely was the Eagles’ most significant victory. They now have the inside track for the Ocean League championship and the automatic playoff berth that comes with it. They still must navigate a second trip through the league schedule, though, including playing Santa Monica, Downey and Culver City on the road. El Segundo needed overtime to beat Santa Monica at home on March 27.

For Culver City (4-8, 3-1), ranked No. 20 in the most recent US Lacrosse/MaxLaxLA coaches poll, the road to the playoffs got a lot tougher. The Centaurs must regroup and win out in their second trip through the league schedule, but unlike the Eagles, Culver has three home games — including May 1 vs. El Segundo.
