Laguna held the high-scoring Trailblazers from Chatsworth (23-2-1) scoreless in the first half of play last Thursday, Feb. 28, at Guyer Field after the Breakers took the lead with just less than seven minutes remaining in the period. Christine Johnson drilled the ball for the Laguna advantage.

In the second half, Sierra Canyon took less than two minutes to tie the score and seemed inspired after that, adding insurance goals at the 25 and 17 minute marks.

Breakers still completed the fourth best run in the sport’s 34 seasons at Laguna.
