Last year, the Warriors beat Oaks Christian, La Reina and Glendale to win the championship of the Invitational tournament. This year, they earned the top seed and a first-round bye before beating fourth-seeded Culver City 17-7 in the semifinals Friday.

Thursday, freshman midfielder led the Westlake offense with seven goals, while junior defender (4 caused turnovers, 3 ground balls) and junior goalie (7 saves) anchored the defense.

Tilton, a first-team All-Marmonte selection who is committed to USC, also was credited with seven draw controls, 10 ground balls and two caused turnovers. Vespe, a first-team All-Marmonte defender, collected three ground balls.

Junior middie was credited with five draw controls and scored one goal. Senior captain Julia Feinbloom, a second-team All-Marmonte pick, junior captain Amanada Jones and senior Alison Weisenfeld each scored one goal.

The Warriors, in only their fifth season as a CIF program, finish the season with an 8-9 record, including five wins in their last seven games. They finished the regular season ranked No. 15 in the US Lacrosse/MaxLaxLA coaches poll and narrowly missed a spot in the US Lacrosse Southern Section North championship bracket.
