Bishop Montgomery’s Danielle O’Neil scored on a give-and-go with Jaclyn White 30 seconds into the match as Bishop Montgomery blitzed Serrano for a 2-0 victory Tuesday in the CIF Southern Section Division IV semifinals in Torrance. Lauren Tarver, the lone remaining holdout from Serrano’s 2004 CIF title team, seemed sullen, sad about ending her career on this note. TORRANCE – All it took was 30 seconds for the Serrano girls soccer team’s season to unravel. And with it hopes for an All-High Desert CIF title game. center_img Coach Dave Molina stood on the field in stunned silence, trying to put his thoughts into words for the Mojave River League champion. Meanwhile, Serrano’s players were forced to watch Bishop Montgomery celebrate just a few steps from where they stood as the Knights (14-5-3) prepared to face La Salle, a 1-0 triple-overtime winner over Desert Sky League champion Granite Hills, meaning the High Desert is without a Division IV finalist. Serrano could only look back and wish for a better start. “They caught our team off guard. We weren’t prepared for that,” Tarver said. “We knew we had to watch our for the tall girl (White), but it was a bad play for us. “I’m really disappointed. We tried. We definitely tried. We put it all out there, but it was not good enough. This was not one of our best games, and that’s depressing.” last_img
