Solid passing sparked another Crescenta Valley breakaway, this time a two-on-none, in the 34th minute. The Falcons' Mallory Carcich played the ball down the left side of Burbank's box to an unmarked Jacque Phinney, who crossed the ball down the right post to a streaking Karina Costilla. Costilla knocked it in for a 2-0 lead.
"It's communication, everyone is talking and it works really well, especially when we know our plays," said Costilla, explaining her team's hot start on offense. "We have been working on our set plays a lot."
CV scored again two minutes later when Mea Zuiderveen jumped in front a Burbank defender attempting to clear the ball. The ball went off Zuiderveen and into the box, leaving her on a breakaway for another goal.
