Cate’s second-seeded girls lacrosse team dropped a second-round Northern Division CIF match on Thursday, falling to visiting Mira Costa 15-13.
The game was tied 13-13 with four minutes to play and Mira Costa was able to control the outcome from there.
Cate (11-2) fell behind 13-7 in the second half before stringing together six straight scores to tie the game. But Mira Costa broke the dry spell with a goal a minute later and added another in the final seconds of play.
Alexis Hill led Cate with six goals. Annie Weis totaled four goals and four assists. Yansy Salmeron made 10 saves as goalkeeper.
The Rams graduate six players from this year’s team: Taylor Erling, Lisa Huang, Emily Nguyen, Lela Puckett and Weis.
