It only took three minutes for Port Of Los Angeles High girls soccer to get their 2012-2013 season afloat.

Once Ariella Martinez blasted in an early shot attempt, the Polar Bears made no bones about their intentions of returning to another CIF-Los Angeles City Section Small Schools championship game, as they scored all of their goals against visiting Foshay in the first half, and ended up winning their season opener 5-1 at Daniels Field. The sophomore midfielder's opening goal would turn into an avalanche for POLA.

Junior forward Samantha Foxworthy, who was a pest all day for Foshay defenders with her hustle, would score the second goal by first narrowly missing a header that glanced the top left-corner of the post, then she used her left foot to put it in the net on the rebound.

Sophomore midfielder Tiffany Torres would blast in her version of a 'one-timer' for POLA's third goal, deflecting a shot attempted by senior midfielder Nikki Bonilla.

Junior goalie Nicole Sierra didn't have to make too many stops, just three saves, but was victimized by a successful corner kick that led to Foshay's only goal in the 27-minute mark, but senior midfielder Melissa Rodriguez would counter-attack for POLA by scoring twice, with her second goal coming off a successful direct kick from senior midfielder Alyssa Bristol.

Bonilla wasn't able to score despite several opportunities, while Torres and Foxworthy also had key chances that didn't pan out for the Polar Bears, who outshot Foshay 17-4. Neither team scored in the second half.
