The Varsity Girls soccer team battled till the end on senior night last Friday against El Segundo. The Centaurs not only needed a win to keep them in the middle of a battle to make the playoffs but also in an effort to send 10 graduating players off their home turf for the last time with a victory.
It was a hard-fought game from the start and Culver City scored first with a shot by Senior Jordan Weiss. The squad couldn't hold on to their slim lead when a goal was conceded in the last 10 minutes. That meant the game went into two 10-minute extra time that ultimately still couldn't separate the two teams. The ended in a 1-1 tie.
The team, parents and coaches paid tribute to their 10 graduating seniors who will be heading onto new adventures after setting incredible high standards over the past three seasons.
"It's been an honor to coach these players and they have truly left a great legacy of quality football that we can build on for years to come" said coach Pete Bartlett.
Culver City played Hawthorne and Beverly Hills this week as they tried to secure the second spot in the Ocean league before they head into the Division 2 playoffs next week.
