Cate Routs Mira Costa in Playoff Opener

Cate girls lacrosse notched a 14-7 win over Mira Costa on Tuesday, good for a first round win in the postseason tournament.

Juniors Maddie Erickson and Daphney McKeefry controlled the midfield with poise, Mack said. Erickson had a team-high  six goals to go with two assists while McKeefry had two goals and a dime. 

Brie Walker and Julia Farmer hawked the ground balls and dominated the draw. Walker finished with five goals and three assists.

"They led the team with incredible determination and poise and had a lot of fun in the process," said Cate coach Renee Mack.

Tessa Denison scored a bounce shot during the match, recovering the ball in a scramble that left her with a broken knee brace. She left the field "still smiling," Mack said. 

Freshmen Lilly Riehl, Josie Erickson and Taylor Kane were decisive on the defensive end, holding Mira Costa attackers to just four goals in the second half. The trio also forced four turnovers. On the offensive end, Josie Erickson had a goal. 

Goalie Lisa Borghesani capped the effort with four saves.

The fourth-seeded Cate (15-0) will take on No. 5 Glendale at home on Tuesday as the playoffs continue.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
