Laguna opened the tournament Saturday with an easy, 21-1 victory over Huntington Beach. The locals came back later that day to post a resounding, 11-2 win over Corona del Mar.

Laguna's third victory was an 11-2 decision in the semifinals over United which earned the team a spot in the finals against Riverside. Laguna jumped out to a quick 4-0 start and rolled to another 11-2 win to take the title.

The Laguna girls' 14U team is: Isabel Riches, Audrey Duffy, Alana Evans, Sophia Lucas, Thea Walsh, Evan Tingler, Ally Meredith, Danielle Borelli, Kyla Whitelock and Delaney Gendron.
