Boys Soccer: Big games upcoming, Rankings, Standings, Stats

Looking for some soccer games to keep you company over the break?

If you’re anything like me, you’re looking for some soccer over the Christmas break to keep you company. I’m keeping busy with a lot of FIFA 12 (Chicharito up top and Cristiano Ronaldo on the wing) and following my favorite Premiere League team (how does Everton draw with Sunderland?!?) but there are also some good games for some East Bay teams until the action picks up after the New Year.
I for one am going to see YV v. Pitt on Wednesday, and College Park also plays Newark Memorial on that day. Dublin v. Northgate is also in the central valley while Arroyo and American play on the 880 corridor.
Richmond is at the Bellarmine Tournament on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday against some very good competition. There is also some EBAL action as San Ramon Valley and Foothill play a makeup match on Thursday.
Acalanes and College Park kick off the New Year as the action starts to heat up on Jan. 2 and gets rolling again on Jan. 3.

Rankings

With a win over De La Salle, Clayton Valley knocked the Spartans down to No. 8, while fellow DVAL school Ygnacio Valley jumps into the top five, with the Eagles just one spot below. Campolindo benefits by moving up as well.
Amador Valley moves up to No. 12 after its win over College Park while Pittsburg is back in the top 15 after rolling off six straight wins.
