Corona del Mar's seventh-ranked soccer team blew a two-goal lead in the second half and wound up tying ninth-ranked El Toro, 3-3, Wednesday at Lake Forest. The Sea Kings might think twice before allowing another comeback.
Corona del Mar Coach Ray Hales blew off some steam in a postgame lecture as his team sat on the damp ground in chilly temperatures.
"I'm not happy at all," Hales said after speaking with his team. "We got into a comfort zone. We stopped running. They completely outclassed us in the second half."
This, after El Toro (3-1-2) had been outplayed in the first half. The Sea Kings (4-0-2) outshot El Toro, 8-3, in the first half and led, 1-0, on Roberto Intriago's goal.
