It didn’t take long for coach Joel Carlisle’s biggest fear to become a reality for his La Habra High School girls soccer team Tuesday afternoon. Mayfair, getting four goals from midfielder Tiya Gallegos, scored early and often before cruising to a 6-1 victory over the Highlanders in a CIF-Southern Section Division III semifinal at Bellflower High. center_img “We knew going into (the game) that they were fast, and can score a lot of goals,” Carlisle said. “Their reputation is that they get them off transition and speed, and that’s what it was. “Defensively, we had a little problem judging who to pick up, and they just beat us with their speed (early in the game). It kind of propelled after that.” The first strike came with the game barely four minutes old when Gallegos, who also had an assist, got loose near the center of the penalty area and made it 1-0 after taking a pass from Cisneros. Cisneros made it 2-0 in the 20th minute before a Gallegos header gave the Monsoons a 3-0 advantage two minutes later. La Habra did have its chances during the first half to almost match the Monsoons’ production. But each time, Mayfair goalie Danielle deSeriere got in the way. last_img
