Greetings, girls soccer players, parents, coaches, team trainers, referees, and aficionados. The first edition of the 2013/14 East Bay High School Girls Soccer Blog has arrived.
Dynamic Dougherty Valley High junior Stephanie Amack has been called up to the under-20 women’s U.S. national team for the Four Nations Tournament in La Manga, Spain, beginning Friday.
So many ties, and it’s not even Father’s Day.
Here’s one for the oddity file: Amador Valley High has earned seven straight ties. Imagine that: A seven-card straight.
The ties have come against San Ramon Valley, Livermore, Foothill, Carondelet, Dougherty Valley, Granada and Monte Vista.
In honor of the Dons (3-7-7, 0-4-6 EBAL), I have placed them in a three-way tie for 15th in the rankings. Rumor has it, Amador’s Lexi Nicholas was typically stellar in goal in Thursday’s scoreless draw with the Mustangs, the Dons’ sixth straight tie in league action.
Well, well, well. … Carondelet doesn’t look quite ready to relinquish the North Coast Section Division I crown, now does it?
The Cougars’ resourceful 2-1 win over previously unbeaten San Ramon Valley on Tuesday night in East Bay Athletic League play made that abundantly clear.
The Wolves remain atop the East Bay Rankings based on their body of work, which includes a Tri-Valley Classic Invitational Division championship. But Carondelet vaults into the No. 2 spot.
Here are the girls brackets.
I heard about this story last week, but just read a fantastic article by East County Times reporter Hilary Costa on the Antioch High girls soccer team donating $1,000 to the young woman who was raped at Richmond High on Oct. 24. You can check out the story at the link below.
