Corona del Mar takes OC lacrosse crown 9-6 over San Clemente

Corona del Mar captured its first U.S. Lacrosse Orange County championship Wednesday night, defeating the third-seeded San Clemente Tritons 9-6 at Dana Hills HS.  After CdM started strong with two goals from senior attackman Hunter Molnar, San Clemente fought back and tied the game just before the end of the first off of a transition goal.

The second quarter was all Sea Kings, though, as a 5-1 run gave CdM a lead the Tritons never could quite overcome.  Trailing 7-3 at half, San Clemente nevertheless did not give in. The Tritons held CdM scoreless in the third while putting one in themselves to make it 7-4 entering the fourth. 

San Clemente came out firing to start the fourth, and it looked like the game might come down to the last few possessions.  However, Sea Kings keeper Michael Ortlieb, a Holy Cross commit, made some big saves and got a little help from the pipes to hold back the Tritons.  When it was all over, Corona del Mar’s fans rushed the field to celebrate the school’s first OC title.

It will be an all Sea Kings affair this Saturday as CdM takes on the LA County champs, the Palos Verdes Sea Kings, for the US Lacrosse Southern Section Championship at Mission Viejo High School at 1 p.m.  Be sure to tune in to The Lacrosse Network if you can’t make the game!

    Good recruiter, terrible coach. Does not develop talent or create a system for players to be successful in. If you really think winning and learning life lessons are mutually exclusive, then you should just move on from this discussion anyways.

    Winning does not guarantee life lessons are being taught, but you can win and impart life lessons. Hence “not mutually exclusive”
