Coming off an upset victory over No. 4 Oak Park and with a showdown at No. 5 Chaminade looming next week, the No. 13 Royal Highlanders coasted to a 20-2 victory over visiting El Camino on Friday. The win extended Royal’s winning streak to five games.
Ten different players scored for the Highlanders (8-4), who jumped out to a 12-2 lead at halftime and never looked back.
Senior Holly Hall (6 goals, 3 assists) led the offensive barrage. The rest of Royal’s offense came from Megan Guardado (4g, 3a), Bailey Parkinson (2g, 1a), Ava Romerosa (2g, 3a), Kourtney Carter (1g, 1a), Erica Hartfield (1g, 1a), Briana Zapata (1g, 1a) and Juliana Bellamy (1g).
Defensive players Keeley Harris and Maddie Arrasmith each got into the act, as well, contributing a goal and an assist each.
Senior Dominique Surabian was held out of the game for a mild concussion sustained late in the win over Oak Park, but she is expected to be cleared to play against Chaminade on Tuesday.
