Friday night’s game saw the 2013 Southern Section Division 1 Champion Griffins going face to face against the 2013 San Diego Open Division Champion Mavericks.
Los Alamitos Girls Varsity Lacrosse Team traveled to La Costa Canyon for a rematch with the Mavericks. The Griffins were slow to start and ended the first half behind 8-4.
La Costa Canyon had been issued a yellow card with 1 minute left in the first half giving Los Alamitos the one-woman up advantage at the start of the second half. Los Al put the pedal to the metal dominating the field and put on a big scoring drive to take the lead.
The Griffins held the Mavericks to only two additional goals in the second half, in comparison to their 8 goals. Over the course of the game four yellow cards were issued, two to each team. This was a big W for the Lady Griffins and makes it two consecutive wins against La Costa Canyon, Los Al having beaten the Mavericks at home last year.
Los Al is 6-3 this year with the second toughest strength of schedule according to LaxPower.
