The Holiday Cup tournament runs Friday and Saturday at Newport Harbor and Corona del Mar.

Holiday Cup attracts elite field

OCVARSITY.COM

Seven girls water polo teams ranked in the Orange County Top 10 -- including No. 1 Corona del Mar and No. 2 Foothill – help highlight the field for this week’s Holiday Cup.

The 16-team tournament runs Friday and Saturday at Newport Harbor and Corona del Mar. The final is Saturday at Newport Harbor at 4:05 p.m.

Corona del Mar (3-0) and defending tournament champion Foothill (5-1) could collide in the semifinals Saturday at Newport Harbor at 11:45 a.m. The first semifinal is scheduled for 10:40 a.m.

Newport Harbor’s JV could be an interesting team at the Holiday Cup to watch, perhaps in the consolation bracket.

The squad, which opens against 2011 Holiday Cup runner-up Santa Barbara, features U.S. youth team goalie Carlee Kapana, a sophomore who is behind Newport Harbor junior goalie Cleo Harrington.

Kapana helped lead Newport Harbor’s JV team past Beckman, 14-6, in the finals of the varsity Lil’ Pickle Showdown at Costa Mesa on Saturday.
