Captures Two Challenge Titles

The girls won titles in two divisions at last weekend’s Challenge tournament, with the OC United Blue HS squad winning the Rush HS division and the OC United MS squad taking the Swell MS division.

Rush HS Division

OC United Blue went 5-0, including three two-goal victories, en route to the championship of the Rush HS Division at last weekend’s Adrenaline Challenge tournament.

After opening pool play with a 9-5 win over Diamond Cut Crew (San Diego) on Saturday, OC United battled Mission Lacrosse for a 5-3 win. OC United then posted its only relative blowout Sunday morning, beating Grizzlies 12-4. United followed that with a 7-5 victory over Sting Lacrosse HS A to close out pool play.

That set up a rematch with Grizzlies — whose only loss in pool play was to United — in the championship game. The rematch was much closer, with United prevailing 7-5 in its third close decision.

Elsewhere in the division:

  • Diamond Cut Crew narrowly lost to Grizzlies in pool play, falling 4-3 on Saturday. After the Crew edged Mission Lacrosse 6-5 in their final pool game, that early loss was the difference between second- and third-place in the pool and a spot in the title game.
  • Mission Lacrosse went 2-2 in the event, with all four games decided by either one goal or two, including Sunday’s 6-5 loss to Diamond Cut Crew.
  • OC United White lost a close one to Mission Lacrosse to open pool play on Saturday, falling 7-6, then dropped three in row to finish the tournament 0-4.
