In a key Sonoma County League midseason showdown Wednesday night in Santa Rosa, the Sonoma Valley High School varsity soccer boys and a good Elsie Allen team engaged in a fast-paced, full-match battle.
When the dust cleared, the Dragons had managed to outlast visiting Elsie Allen, with senior Paco Martínez’s second-half goal the difference in their hard-earned 1-0 victory, which kept them close on the tail of front-running defending champion Analy in the race for the SCL crown.
Sonoma’s boys host another tough SCL foe, Piner, at 4 p.m. today on the high school field, while the varsity soccer girls, who played visiting Piner yesterday – results not available at presstime – will host longtime league rival Analy at 4 p.m. this Tuesday, Oct. 8, on the high school field.
The tennis Lady Dragons traveled to Forestville on Tuesday and blanked El Molino 7-0 behind singles match victories by junior Cecilia Montano’s 6-4, 6-0 over Isabella Negri at No. 1 singles; junior Hanna Lemaire’s 6-0, 6-1 over Addie Pimpe at No. 2 singles; senior Michelle Stovall’s 6-0, 6-1 over Mary Rose Ohlin at No. 3 singles; and junior Annie Morgan’s 6-0, 6-1 over Erin Eck at No. 4 singles.
