The Trabuco Hills Girls JV Lacrosse team traveled to Mission Viejo Thursday for a rematch against the Diablos.

The second half started with the Diablos pressuring on offense again.  The ground balls seemed to favor the home team and the Mustangs again fell behind with the Diablos leading 7-4.  Fueled by a strong defensive performance the Mustang offense began to find holes in the Diablo defense.  Quick goals from Jacquie Cronkrite and Caroline Rabourn brought the Mustangs within one goal of the Diablos.  The final minutes belonged to the Mustangs and they just missed the tying goal with 42 seconds remaining on the clock.  The Diablos won the game 7-6, but the Mustangs continue to improve with their passing and strong defense.

Goal scorers of the game were Jacquie Cronkrite (2), Irene Petruzzi (2), Ashly Bradshaw (1) and Caroline Rabourn (1).  Sam Ransom finished with 9 saves.

Record: 6-5-1
