December 12 Varsity at Harvard-Westlake 2-4 Loss

47a4cc32b3127cce9854b5566a5a00000015102AZMm7Vq5bM-A weather induced change of venue changed this match against Harvard-Westlake to an away game. Costa got on track with a low hard curving shot by Vivianna Villacorta from outside the top of the box to give Costa a 1-0 lead in the 19th minute. A H-W attacker used her speed to turn the corner down the right side & get off a shot past the Costa defender & keeper to even the score 10 minutes later. Just before halftime H-W got a 2nd goal when a spinning ball off a simultaneous kick in front of the Costa keeper went right to an open H-W attacker who had an easy finish. H-W made in 1-3 when a deep cross went of the fingertips of the diving Costa keeper right to an open attacker on the back post. Costa got a freebie when a well-placed cross by McKenna Doyle was headed by a H-W defender for an own-goal. Costa got a spark from that goal but it was quickly doused when a H-W 1 time shot off a deep cross found an opening through the Costa keeper and sealed the 2-4 H-W win.
