Boys Soccer: Final Notebook, All-Star Rosters, Rankings, Standings, Stats

Another East Bay boys soccer season in the books, and boy was it an action packed one.

The great season, made possible by all the players, coaches, parents and fans, came to an end yesterday with two very good North Coast Section finals.
The Division I final was like watching two heavy weight fighters go back and forth. The momentum kept swinging in each direction, and either team could have won this game. San Ramon Valley might have had a few more chances when it was said and done, but it was a very even game, and Nick Dildine put away the biggest goal of his career to give the Spartans the five-peat. What a run this team is on.
The Wolves were a worthy opponent last night, and could have easily won the game, but the De La Salle defenders and keeper Andrew Konstantino showed up each time they were needed.
The Division II game was physical and competitive, but not dirty at all. The Minutemen had such a good defense all year as those defenders, led by Yojay Basulto, and the defense came up big as did keeper Emmanuel Jimenez.
Both Concord and Campolindo had opportunities in the game, but both keepers snuffed them out for the most part. On the other side, Jack Price made some great saves for the Cougars at crucial junctions when Concord could have gone up 2-0. He kept his team in the game after Evan Farmer’s early goal.
Campolindo pushed in the last 20 minutes and had plenty of possession and chances, but Concord was determined to win the game and held on for the school’s first ever NCS title.

Here are the rosters for the first annual East Bay All-Star Game. It’s on Friday, March 8 at 7:00 at Richmond High. Please spread the word. There will be a gate fee, as per NCS rules for All-Star games. That is still to be determined.

Rankings

De La Salle once again ends the year as the top ranked team in the East Bay, making it four out of the five years that this blog has been around. San Ramon Valley is very deserving at No. 2 while Division II champion Concord finishes as the No. 3 ranked team in the East Bay.
The rankings work differently than playoff brackets because the entire season still needs to be taken into account, so very good teams that were upset in the playoffs didn’t drop too far as Acalanes, MV and Berkeley claim the next three spots, then Division II runner up Campolindo finishes the year ranked No. 7.
Cal and St. Mary’s reached the semifinals and finish the year ranked in the top 10, while Freedom finishes in the top 15 for the first time in school history.

    Matt,
    Great coverage all season and, wow, what a season! My reason for writing is to offer this old coach’s nominee for COY and that should be none other than Alfonso Munoz of Concord High.
    Also, congratulations to Yojay Basulto from Concord (and formerly of Clayton Valley) for being selected as a Co-Defensive MVP for the DVAL and also for being selected as a member of the D2 All-Star team.
    Looking forward to seeing you all next year…from somewhere!
