Mira Costa Bounces Back with 12-6 Win at Culver City

Four days after losing to one Ocean League team at home, No. 12 Mira Costa bounced back Monday to beat another Ocean League team on the road. Monday’s 12-6 victory at No. 19 Culver City improved the Mustangs’ record to 4-2.

Last week, upstart Santa Monica beat Mira Costa 12-4, ending the Mustangs’ winning streak over teams from the three-year-old Ocean League at 14. Costa had beaten No. 18 El Segundo 13-12 earlier this month to extend the streak.

Monday, the Mustangs got back on the winning track. Casey Bonner (4 goals, 2 assists), Zach Horowitz (3g, 2a) and JJ Packer (2g, 2a) scored multiple goals for Costa, and Miles Choromanski (1g, 2a), Max Geoghegan (1g, 1a) and Josh Maruyama (1g, 1a) contributed multiple points.

Mira Costa next plays Friday at home against No. 17 Palisades Charter. Wednesday, Culver City travels to Santa Monica, which entered the Top 20 at No. 13 after last week’s win at Costa. Friday, the Centaurs travel to Downey.
