Newport field hockey shares tourney title


Orange County Tournament

HUNTINGTON BEACH — Newport Harbor defeated rival Huntington Beach in the championship game, but shared the title with the Oilers, due to both teams having one loss in the double-elimination event Saturday at Marina High.

The Sailors and Oilers were knotted at 0-0 in regulation, then finished tied, 1-1, through five rounds of penalty strokes.

The Sailors then prevailed in sudden-death strokes, when senior Stephanie Storch converted.

Newport Harbor junior center back Courtney McIntosh, who had a penalty stroke goal in regulation of the title game, was named Tournament MVP.

Sailors senior Sydney King was Most Valuable Goalie in the one-day event in which the Tars went 4-1.

Newport Harbor defeated Bonita, 1-0, in strokes, topped Marina, 4-0, lost to Huntington Beach in strokes, 1-0 (after both teams failed to score in regulation), and beat Glendora, 1-0.

Stephanie and Madeline Storch, as well as senior Taylor Cordiero, were also named to the all-tournament team.
