first_imgWESTLAKE VILLAGE – Whether it was Kirsten DiPippo’s first-half ejection or the play of Thousand Oaks junior goalkeeper Laura Brain, Westlake was left seeing red Thursday night. As a result, the Warriors’ run in the Southern Section Div. II girls’ soccer playoffs met an untimely stop sign. Megan Meyer buried a 30-yard shot in the 24th minute and Brain recorded seven saves for her sixth consecutive shutout to lead the visting Lancers to a 1-0 quarterfinal victory. “That was amazing,” said Brain, sporting a red goalkeeper uniform. “That was a game of a lifetime.” It quickly became a game to forget for Westlake (12-3-8), the lone wild-card entry left in the quarterfinals, after the Warriors were forced to play more than 50 minutes with only 10 players after DiPippo was issued a red card for an apparent use of profanity. Westlake still controlled the run of play in the second half, but Kate Edwards and Kylie McDonald couldn’t escape double- and triple-teams to net the equalizer. “You hate to see it come to an end like that,” Westlake coach Frank Marino said. “But they gave 100 percent effort … it’s maybe the most proud I’ve been in my seven years here.” Meyer’s goal, set up by Jennifer Arauz, lifted Thousand Oaks (21-4-3) to its second semifinal berth in three years. “It seems like they had this curse over us,” said Meyer, who helped snap the Lancers’ seven-game winless streak against Westlake. center_img “It feels so good to get this thing off our chest.” Said Lancers coach Geoff Raives: “If we didn’t play Westlake, it wouldn’t have been the same. We knew we had to go through them to make this season complete.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
