‘Soons seek to avoid sharing

first_imgIn other Division III games, La Mirada (15-9-2) hosts Beverly Hills (15-8-3) and Glenn (15-6) travels to No. 1 seed Sunny Hills (20-1-5). Bellflower (10-10) visits Fullerton (9-8-1) in a wild-card game Wednesday. In Division I, Moore League champ Wilson (17-3-5) hosts Trabuco Hills (9-2-7). Bruins coach Jason Kirkwood felt his team was a little rusty in its regular-season finale, a 1-0 victory over Poly. “We’re going to have a couple hard days of practice,” he said, “to get ourselves set up to make another run at (the title).” Moore League runner-up Poly (11-6-5) hosts Esperanza (10-5-8), Lakewood (13-7-2) visits El Toro (15-2-5), Millikan (10-8-2) travels to No. 2-seed Mater Dei (19-1-3) and Sunset League champ Los Alamitos (14-7-4) hosts Chaminade (7-10-2). In Division V, Valley Christian hosts Mountain View in a first-round game. San Gabriel Valley League champ Downey (14-6-2) hosts Beaumont (15-6-3) and Bell Gardens (16-2-2) plays the Yucca Valley-Citrus Hill winner. Lynwood (14-3-1) visits Arroyo (12-7-4) in a wild-card game Wednesday. The Monsoons’ opportunity to claim the CIF title outright begins Friday, when they host Corona Centennial (6-14-7) at 3 p.m. in the first round of the Division III playoffs. When the pairings were released Monday, Mayfair (21-4-2) found itself seeded No. 2. “(Sharing the 2006 title has) definitely been our biggest motivation this year,” said Mayfair coach Sal Marroquin. “We’ve been working really hard so that if we do get the opportunity again, we can walk away with it.” A banner hangs from the Mayfair High gymnasium rafters that proclaims the Monsoons the 2006 CIF Southern Section Girls Soccer Division III champion. But that’s only partially true. Mayfair actually was co-champion a year ago, sharing the title with Orange Lutheran. center_img St. Paul (7-15-1) hosts St. Matthias (6-7) in a Division VI first-round game and Mary Star (9-10-1) plays either Oxford Academy (8-12) or Calvary Chapel Downey (8-8-1).
