Foothill smothers El Toro; Newport Harbor routs Agoura

OCVARSITY.COM

Foothill's defense didn't get the shutout on the scoreboard, but it still recorded a few other important goose eggs in the Irvine Southern California Championships on Friday night.

Goalie Kelsey Roland blocked two penalty shots and the Knights held El Toro's power-play scoreless in a 12-2 quarterfinal victory at Foothill.

Top-seeded Foothill also shut out center Allison Skaggs, who shredded Montebello for seven goals in the second round Thursday.

"The effort was good," Foothill coach Jeff Colton said of his team's defense.
