Elibeth Torres scored one goal for the Nitros, who finished 6-10.

“We had plenty of opportunities, but we didn’t shoot very well,” said Glendale Coach Joe Campbell, whose team picked up a 7-5 first-round home victory against Beverly Hills. “We had a young team and we made strides in getting back to the playoffs.”


Against Beverly Hills, Aguilar collected a team-high three goals. The Nitros received a pair of goals from Ahuiexel Lopez-Engleman and one apiece from Ariella Ruiz and Claire Bernardo. Glendale, which went 3-4 for third place in the Prep League, got five saves from goalkeeper Jenina Villabroza.

“We got some good scores to move us up to second,” St. Francis first-year Coach Kyle Ostrom said. “I’m real happy with us getting second.”

De Pinto, Brandt, Mozilo, Tenney and Finney will participate in the league’s individual final, which will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday at Wilson Golf Course at Griffith Park. The top nine move on to the CIF Individual Tournament.
