Miller leads Dons to CIF playoff berth

Kai Miller had some business to take care with her team at Santa Barbara High before heading off to Boston University to continue her soccer career.

The senior wanted to get her team into the CIF playoffs. She accomplished that Thursday by getting an assist and scoring the game-winning goal for the Dons in a 2-1 victory over Ventura in their Channel League finale.

Miller scored the game winner on a penalty kick with two minutes remaining, assuring the Dons (4-10-2, 4-4-0) of a third-place finish in the league and a postseason berth.

Miller assisted on Katie Joseff’s goal in the first half to give Santa Barbara a 1-0 lead.
