La Jolla High School was the site of a CIF Open Division Girls Lacrosse Quarter-Final Playoff game Saturday at 4 p.m., as the No. 7 seeded Islanders visited the No. 2 La Jolla Vikings. Since both teams compete in the Western League, they had played twice before. April 12, La Jolla defeated Coronado 14-6 and April 23, the Islanders bested La Jolla 12-11 in Coronado.

In the very early-going, Coronado, under the direction of Head Coach Kirstyn Atkinson, had the better of the play, with Kat Green scoring just three minutes into the contest. La Jolla countered 35 seconds later to tie the score. Camden DeMaio scored on a nice spin move in front of the goal to make the score 2-1. More than nine minutes elapsed until La Jolla scored again and then the floodgates opened. The Vikings ran off nine consecutive goals to take a 10-2 lead with 22 minutes left to play. Two minutes later Makenna Armstrong found the back of the net and Green scored her second goal with 4:10 remaining. The final score was 12-4 in favor of La Jolla. Islander goalkeeper Kendall Chapko was credited with 13 saves.

The Islanders are still young and lose four seniors to graduation in Green, Claire Morris, Mackenzie DeMaio and Rachel Siefert. So next year the Islanders should be competitive again.
