The Laguna Beach girls' soccer team, whose home nonleague game Monday against San Juan Hills was cancelled due to a rain out, returned to action Wednesday and ran visiting Orange right out of Guyer Field.
The Breakers scored an emphatic 8-0 nonleague victory. It was the second lopsided win in a row for Laguna, which shut out Palm Desert, 7-0, Dec. 29.
"We played with a new confidence," Laguna Coach Bill Rolfing said. "The 8-0 win was a result of fine finishing up top, but more importantly, a sense of structure throughout the midfield. The passing connections out of defense into the midfield were well done and we held the possessions with composure."
Marina Paul and Jenny Maddocks led the way, with Paul scoring four goals. Rolfing said that freshmen Johana Abarca and Tessa Hopper "shined on offense and defense, respectively." Senior keeper Ryan Bakkum recorded her third shutout of the season.
