Crescenta Valley (1-2) got a first-half goal from Katie Callister, while the combination of Karina Costilla and Lisa Kang collided with the Canyon goalie in the second half to knock in a 2-0 lead.

According to Coach Jorden Schulz, the team stepped up its play overall from the backline to the forwards after losing by a combined 5-0 score in its previous two outings.
