LONG BEACH – Before Monday, the Ayala High School girls water polo team had faced Whittier twice. Each time, Whitter improved. Each time, Ayala lost. That trend continued when the two teams met in the CIF-Southern Section Division III championship game Monday night at Belmont Olympic Pool. Lauren Barron scored five goals and contributed in other ways, too, leading Whittier to a resounding 13-7 victory. Whittier entered the contest as the division’s No. 1 seed. Ayala was No. 2. The familiarity between the teams would seem to eliminate any edge one might have over the other, but afterward, Whittier’s coaches and players talked of watching films of Ayala’s games and forming a game plan based upon the Bulldogs’ tendencies. It was the Cardinals’ defense that set the tone from the opening sprint for possession, refusing to allow the Bulldogs to get comfortable in their offense, and at then igniting the Cardinals’ potent counter attack. “We weren’t running our offense,” Dement said. “They just came out hard and took charge. Most of the first half, we really didn’t set (the offense) up. We were more just spectators.” Ayala’s Erin Herold finished with a team-high five goals in the loss, the Bulldogs second in three consecutive matches against Whittier in a CIF final. “They just kept getting better and better each time we played,” said Ayala goalkeeper Caitlin Dement, who finished with 10 saves. The victorious Cardinals picked the perfect time to play perhaps their best game of the season – maybe in two years – dominating the Bulldogs so much that there can be no question which was the better team. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
