CDM avoids Battle and sinks Sailors 15-7

Senior attackmen Casey Mix (43) and Jack Ortlieb celebrate one of their eight combined goals.
 The Battle of the Bay never had a chance. The visiting Sea Kings (8-0) scored the first four goals of the game, built an insurmountable 8-1 lead early in the second quarter and never let the Sailors (3-8) get within striking distance. The end result was an impressive 15-7 CDM win.

"We got off to a terrific start," said CDM head coach G.W. Mix. "It was important for us to set the tone early and I thought the kids did a great job of doing that at both ends of the field and on the face-offs."

Senior attackman Casey Mix (5g/2a) scored the games first goal off an assist from Jack Ortlieb (Sr/Attack). He followed that with a second, unassisted goal, less than three minutes later. Senior midfielder Chris Von Der Ahe (2g) and Ortlieb (3g/2a) each added goals and the Sea Kings quickly took a 4-0 and never looked back.

After Harbor scored with two minutes left in the first quarter to bring the Sailors within one, Mix added his third of the night and sophomore midfielder Max Kline (2g/1a) added a last second goal to increase the lead to five goals at 6-1.

CDM opened the second quarter with goals from senior Brett Nelson and Casey Mix and the Kings led 8-1. Ortlieb added another goal with four minutes remaining off of an assist from senior attackman Todd Kitzens (1g/2a).

Harbor scored three times in the period, twice in extra-man situations, but never closed the gap to less than five goals. CDM took a 9-4 lead into half-time.

After the break, the visitors wasted no time adding to the Sea King side of the scoreboard with three unanswered goals from Ben Palitz (So/Midfield), Von Der Ahe, and Kline increasing the lead to 12-4. 

CDM outscored Newport 3-1 in the third quarter and then 3-2 in the fourth on goals from Ortlieb (assist Kitzens), Mix (assist Ortlieb) and Kitzens (assist Kline).

Newport Harbor tried a variety of things throughout the game, including shutting off CDM's leading scorer Jack Ortlieb. But the Sea King's quick start and soild team effort proved simply too much.

"We expected gimmicks and prepared for them. I think our kids did a nice job. When you win by eight goals and the guy they shut off still has 3 goals and two assists, your team offense is working."

Sophomore goalie Hoyt Crance made 12 saves, 5 in the first quarter, enabling the Kings to go on its opening 6-1 run.

"With all due respect to the rivalry, we didn't really give it much thought," said CDM head coach G.W. Mix. "We felt if we came in, played hard, and did our thing, we would have a lot of success. We talked about not letting a skirmish turn into a battle."

Up next for CDM is visiting Mullen (CO) on Wednesday at 4:00 PM at Corona del Mar.
