Joanna Perone & The Ma Sisters Power SPHS Girls Soccer

The Harbor Area feud in girls soccer between San Pedro High and Banning of Wilmington had no winners during the 2011-2012 season, or losers for that matter, as both Marine League battles ended in a draw. 

Those two deadlocked affairs almost brought Banning their first league title, except San Pedro won their seventh straight crown thanks to a victory for Narbonne of Harbor City over the Pilots during the final week of the regular season. So the Pirates came into the first 2012-2013 battle with Banning with a chip on their shoulder, and they wasted no time in proving who was still the boss.

A first-half scoring onslaught of epic proportions would power San Pedro to a convincing 5-1 victory over Banning to maintain their share of first place with Narbonne in the Marine League. The Pirates (7-7-2 overall, 4-0-1 league) will travel to Narbonne on Friday with the league title virtually up for grabs.

Senior forward Joanna Perone's goal in the fifth minute would set the tone, then three straight goals by the awesome sister combination of senior forward Analisa Ma and freshman forward Gabriella Ma would pace the Pirates to a 4-0 lead at halftime. Gabriella's two goals were the first goals of her career.

Analisa would blast a shot off the top of the goal, but it ricocheted right to Perone, who headed it in for the game's first goal. Analisa would return the favor by using her left foot to drive in a shot she rebounded in off the deflection from San Pedro freshman midfielder Heather Carlton. Then Gabriella would blast in a shot off an assist from sophomore midfielder Dana Cameron in the 22nd minute, and six minutes later scored again off a corner kick from sophomore defender Kirsten Bauman.

That would be more than enough for San Pedro, Perone still wasn't through with Banning just yet.

In the final seconds of the game, Perone beats a Banning defender to the ball for the steal, then saw nothing but the goal in front of her, finally proceeding to blast in a shot over the outstretched arms of the goalie to provide the finishing touch for the Pirates, who are 23-0-4 against Banning since the 1999-2000 season.

Banning dropped to 3-2 in the Marine League.
