    Fan presence likely also made a huge difference. LL had almost twice as many fans as miramonte, and an incredibly loud student section in attendence

    Shame on Miramonte! Las Lomas absolutely displayed more team support! It will be fun to see how the all DFAL playoff turns out. My bet is on LL…they are on a roll.

  • LL Dad

    A fun side note is that Campo’s Coach (Erneto Silva) is now and was previously the competitive coach for a number of the LL players including my frosh daughter.

    And yes, Las Lomas travels well and hats off to the LL boys varsity team who have been strong supporters all season long of the girls team even after getting eliminated from NCS themselves. Very classy move by the lads.

    Just as impressive were the number of parents and friends of famlies that came out in the elements without even having a player on the team. True support, and it does not go un-noticed by the girls.

    Any update on MV – CP?

  • Goalkick

    MV – CP update?

  • Goalkick

    MV – 1, CP – 0

    So it’s MV – SRV “Round 4″ in the final.

  • DVAL fan

    @RealityCheck I saw tonight’s match. This was an accurate call. MV 1 CP 0 Final. CP fought hard but no match for Mustangs. MV looked like they have been playing together for years and made the Falcons chase all over the field. Very good student crowd for CP tonight. Good to see the support for girls soccer.

  • KC

    congrats mv on an incredible season

  • soccervalet

    MV played good enough to win against a strong SR team yesterday and were able to raise their game after SR tied it up. MV defense underrated—giving up only 7 goals entire season. They shut down a lot of trouble before it gets to the box.

  • BlankStare

    Does anyone know when the all-league teams get announced?
    @MattSchwab: are you doing an all-area team this season?

  • BlankStare

    7 goals in 25 games! Very impressive. I’m told they start a freshman at CB as well.

  • Matt Schwab

    Yes, I will be handling the all-East Bay selections and will be seeking input soon from coaches. … I’ll try to have the final rankings out by tonight. Congratulations to all four finalists in the NCS Division I and II playoffs. Hard-fought and compelling finals. While the Division I final matchup was predicable, Division II was as wild as the weather. Great crowd enthusiasm at Dougherty Valley and Dublin highs for the championship matches, especially from the Las Lomas supporters who delivered a hearty effort. The upstart Knights played inspired soccer and had a great game plan against the classy Cougars in windy conditions. Campolindo was a worthy champion. Monte Vista put the finishing touches on a tremendous unbeaten season. San Ramon Valley gave the Mustangs a supreme test, nearly tying the match in the final stages. Kudos to all four participants on Saturday.

    They do. Believe injuries led to that opportunity. Both MV varsity freshman stepped up this year to make contributions including goal scoring. Earning playing time with MV group is tough—strong talent across the board. Keepers sometimes had easy games; but Emerson made great saves in end-of-season EBAL game against San Ramon and White was excellent during the one Heritage surge in NCS.

  • soccervalet

    I remember how good Cal was in the NCS semifinal last year before going down in PKs with injured SR keeper coming in to defend PKs. You can’t make this drama up. In Tri-Valley Classic this year, MV won final with 3 keepers: 1 took first half, 1 second, and 1 in PKs.

  • soccervalet

    Hate PKs too. Always a crap shoot.
