Torrance, Calif. --- The Lady Mariners of Marymount California University earned another win in an impressive 6-0 victory on their home field on Saturday afternoon over the Saint Katherine University Firebirds.
Leading the Mariners on offense in the first half were: Brooke Ybarra (SO/Canyon Country, CA) (1 goal, 2 assists), Emily Atkinson (SO/Torrance, CA) (1 goal), Haley Flores (SR/Costa Mesa, CA) (1 goal), Jasmine Barajas (SR/Inglewood, CA) (1 goal), Kayla Colaruotolo (JR/Palos Verdes, CA) (1 goal), Peyton Leibo (SO/Torrance, CA) (1 assist), and Andrea Alvarez (JR/Highland, CA) (1 assist). MCU's thoughtful possession allowed them to control the pace and flow of the game, which led to the advantage they held at half-time.
Megan Finney (SR/Westminister, CA) scored the lone goal of the second half off of a chance created by Natasha Otriz in the 57th minute. The Mariners kept possession for the vast majority of the second half, and goalkeeper, Luz Lopez (FR/Long Beach, Calif.) earned her second shutout of the season. The final score ended in a 6-0 victory for MCU.
