Mira Costa Boys Soccer Takes CIF-SS Title

May 29, 2021 10:40AM ● By Mb News Staff
The Mira Costa High School boys' soccer team won the California Interscholastic Federation's Southern Section (CIF-SS) title for the first time on Friday night by defeating Loyola, 1-0, before a full crowd at Waller Stadium.

A goal by Ben Moglia early in the game was the lone goal in the hotly contested match. It capped off what has been described a "storybook season" for the boys' soccer team.

Earlier this month, the Mustangs upset No. 1-seeded L.A. Cathedral in the Southern Section Division 1 soccer playoffs.

The team has been invited to play in the CIF SoCal Regional Soccer Championships beginning on June 1.

Waller Stadium Filled to Capacity Limits


The boys played before a sold-out capacity crowd of more than 1,000 - marking one of the largest public events in Manhattan Beach since the beginning of the pandemic. 

Spectators at Waller Stadium were divided into a "vaccinated" and "non-vaccinated" (more widely spaced apart) sections, and those who were vaccinated were asked to show proof at the door. 

After the final buzzer sounded, a stream of jubilant students ran onto the field to join the team in celebration [see video below].
