Costa outplayed & outshot Lakewood throughout the match recording ~16 shots to Lakewood’s 1. The Lakewood keeper with ~7 saves kept the sustained Costa attack out of the goal until the 65th minute when Arielle Sheres collected a loose keeper save to give Costa the 1-0 lead. A short time later that lead became a win that would send Costa to the tournament semi-finals in a rematch with host South Torrance HS.


South Torrance Holiday Varsity Tournament Saturday December 13 at 3:30 PM vs South Torrance HS (2-0 Win): After losing to South Torrance earlier in the week 1-3, Costa put together a well-played game that often had South on their heels and kept their fast paced attack frustrated. It was at 10 minutes when Hanna Watkins collected a pass near the middle and put a shot into the upper left corner of the South goal for a 1-0 Costa lead. Accurate passing & nice defensive play turned back all the South attacks the rest of the game. Hardworking McKenna Doyle put the game away in the 63rd minute when she collected a pass at midfield, outran the South defense and beat the charging keeper. This 2-0 semi-final win earned Costa a trip to the tournament championship game vs a physical Torrance HS team.
