Fallbrook High School girls’ field hockey faced off against Mira Mesa High School at home Saturday, Nov. 9, during their first CIF playoff game. The Lady Warriors sent the Marauders home with a score of 5-0 and improved Fallbrook’s overall record to 10 wins and eight losses.

The Warriors played aggressively on the offensive end, rarely giving Mira Mesa the opportunity to score. Warriors Jaylen Leeman, Erin Murray, Delana Sehnert, Taylor Sanchez and Audrey Gillcrest each contributed one goal.

Varsity coach Debora Berg said she is confident in the team’s potential to make it all the way to the end of the playoffs and predicted that Fallbrook will be facing off against San Marcos High School in the finals.

One of the key ingredients for success this season has been the amount of leadership the team has exhibited on the field, Berg said.

“We have tremendous senior leadership on our team,” Berg said. “We have 10 seniors who know how to lead by doing; hard work produces results.”

Fallbrook continued its winning streak Nov. 11 by conquering the Mission Hills High School Grizzlies in the second round of CIF, 3-2 in overtime. They played Claremont High School, Nov. 13, after press time.
