For the first time since 2009, the Mira Costa girls lacrosse team defeated Redondo Union 9-6.
In a contest at RUHS on Tuesday, Remi Nemeroff scored three goals for MCHS, with Taylor Pool and Lia Sepanek each adding two goals for. Kim Koltun and Lexi Kurugian put one goal apiece in the net as well.
The Redondo Sea Hawks began struggling after their star player Allison Kotzbach left the game with a knee injury about 10 minutes into the match. In the second half, the team came within four points of the Mustangs with back to back goals, but did not get any closer.
The two teams will face off again Tuesday at Mira Costa at 6 p.m.
