Newport Harbor Girls win a close two goal game with Laguna Hills
Rallying behind junior midfielder Melody Lam who booked five goals, and junior goalie Sarah Fuhrman, the Laguna Hills Hawks threatened a late-game comeback, but the Newport Harbor Sailors held strong to earn a 9-7 victory. For Newport Harbor, Kim Comet found her mojo, ripping two identical, bread-and-butter goals off sharp-angle crease rolls; she also scooped three draw controls and a ground ball. Senior defensive specialist Jenna Nulty not only snagged three ground balls, but also unleashed a left-handed shot for her first goal since freshman year. On March 11, Laguna Hills draws against San Clemente, and Palos Verdes visits Newport Harbor.
