Sea Kings find themselves, dominate second half

 It took CDM a little more than a half to find themselves, but once they did, the Kings went on a 6-1 run to defeat Huntington 10-6. Senior midfielder Michael Keasey and junior attackman Jack Ortlieb combined to score six goals and helped lead the Sea Kings (21-0) to the critical quarter-final win.

"We began the game fairly well," said CDM head coach G.W. Mix. "We were up 2-0 and had a good chance to make it 3, but didn't convert. After that, we seemed to play out of character. Too many guys trying to make the big play rather than the right play."

The Oilers (10-9) took advantage of CDM's miscues and controlled the scoring in the second quarter, outscoring CDM 4-2 and taking a 5-4 lead into halftime.

"We spent most of our time in the lockerroom reminding ourselves of who we are. That second quarter was not us. Our seniors took over and got the rest of the team to re-focus. I was proud of the level of leadership a number of guys showed which led to an impressive response in the second half."

Three minutes into the third quarter, Keasey connected on a feed from Casey Mix (Jr/Attack) to tie the game. Less than two minutes later, Keasey found Jack Ortlieb open on an extra-man opportunity. Ortlieb's goal gave the Kings a 6-5 lead they would never relinquish.

The Sea King defense held Huntington scoreless in the third period and maintained the shutout until the 3:53 mark of the fourth when the game was well in hand with CDM up 9-5.

"The kids did a much better job of playing our brand of lacrosse in the second half. The defense settled down and played together. The offense moved the ball very well and stopped settling for the first opportunity. We had longer possessions and there was far less chaos all around. I think Huntington was relying on some of that chaos we unintentionally created in the first half."

"We found a bunch of leadership at halftime and it really made a difference. Jack Gorab (Sr/Midfield) came up with a huge goal for us and Frasier (Frasier Anderson/Sr/Midfield) and Psycho (Kyle Sherburne/Sr/Midfield) made some big time plays on critical ground ball battles down the stretch." 

With the win, CDM improves to 21-0 and will face 5-time defending champion Foothill (#4 seed) in the semi-final on Saturday, May 5 at 5:00 PM at Aliso Niguel High School.
