The No. 5 Redondo Union girls lacrosse team broke with tradition on Monday and walked away from their game Bay League rival Palos Verdes with a comfortable 17-7 victory. Like many great rivalries, the intense showdowns between these two LA County powers are often decided in the final minute. This year was the exception.
In a playoff like atmosphere in Palos Verdes, the Seahawks jumped out of the gate fast and furious with an 11 – 1 lead at halftime and never looked back.
Junior Isadora Scott (5g,3a, 10gb) and sophomore Kylie Thompson (4g, 4gb) led a relentless attack that overpowered Palos Verdes. Junior goalie Morgan Wlaschin rejected 18 of the 25 shots she faced (72%) to frustrate a potent Sea King offense that was averaging 16 goals per game.
PV was paced by Emily Typrowicz (3g), Sarah Park (3g), and Harper Skeie (1g).
Redondo Union now takes control of the Bay League and continues to impress within the new CIFSS landscape. Next Games: Redondo Union at home vs Glendale on 5/5 and Palos Verdes at home vs Mira Costa on 4/29.
