The Broncos cruised to the Championship game with victories over Westridge 13-8 and Oxnard. Vista Murrieta ranked Number 6 in the CIF Southern Section Division 2 polls then faced Schurr. The Spartans were ranked 5th in the polls.

Vista Murrieta dominated the first half as the Broncos broke away with a 9-6 lead. The Broncos fell into a slumber in the second half and Schurr came roaring back scoring three quick goals to get back into the game.

Vista Murrieta was stunned but fought on. Trailing by 1 with a second left to play, Murrieta’s Amira Van Buren was fouled and had the opportunity to tie it all up. The referee marked the infraction further down the pool where the foul occurred and she missed wide.12572961_583703368443620_5391177800439810318_n

Vista Murrieta will face Murrieta Valley tonight for the Championship of the Southwestern League’s Round Robin Tournament. The game will be played at Murrieta Mesa at 7pm. The consolation games start at 3pm.
