Eagles Earn Senior Night Win over Downey!
El Segundo, CA — Everything the Eagles have been working for all season came together in yesterday's game vs. Downey. From the very first whistle, the players had their heads in the game and played their hearts out. The entire first half was back and forth, the goal differential never extending beyond one and the half ending 8-7 in Gundo's favor. The Eagles pulled ahead early in the second half to lead by 4, but Downey answered to tie it at 11 with 10 minutes in the game. An Eagle goal by Morgan Wood at 5 minutes put Gundo ahead, but Downey was quick to tie it back up 20 seconds later. Abi Layne finished a shot with 2:30 to go, but Downey scored again with 1:17 left. The Eagles lost the draw but came up with a CTO and beautiful transition down the field. A strategic possession timeout called by Coach Chuck with 30 seconds left allowed the girls to take a breath and set up a play, and they went back out there with looks of determination unlike any other. The goalie saved the shot, but Grace Bonney came up with the rebound and buried the ball in the back of the net with 5 seconds left in the contest.
