Palos Verdes is always one of our toughest games. They are very well coached and it turns into a dog fight every year. This season was no different as we suffered a 6-5 loss.

Torrey Pines, La Costa boys again figure among section’s lacrosse elite
Since the CIF established an Open Division bracket for boys lacrosse in 2013, four of the six championships have been won by either Torrey Pines or La Costa Canyon (two apiece). The Falcons, coached by Jon Zissi are defending champions, having prevailed 7-5 over Coronado after rebounding from a 3-0 deficit in the title game. La Costa Canyon beat Coronado by one goal to capture the 2017 crown. The 2019 season got underway last week and those same two teams figure to be front and center when the championship is on the line in two months.
Seniors will be key to both squads and two of the best fourth-year standouts in the county are LCC forward JJ Sillstrop and Torrey Pines midfielder Porter Hollen. Sillstrop, a nearly unstoppable offensive force who will be playing at Denver University next year, scored 69 goals during his junior year while earning All-American and
“Nobody gets more attention from opposing defenses,” said LCC Head Coach Kevin Cooper about two-year team captain Sillstrop. “Last year, he handled it so well—he was incredible individually and does an outstanding job of getting teammates involved. His strengths? Really everything. He’s the straw that stirs our drink.”
