Weekly Sports Report - the last for Fall

Fall sports are officially over!

Cheryl won her soccer game Monday against Irvine Valley College, 2-1! This is a make-up game from last week's rain out.

Cheryl strained her hip-flexor on Monday, and was unable to play on Tuesday against Cypress College. They lost 1-4. Cheryl felt really bad. She said the loss was her fault. When she plays, the team starts their attack from defense... even I noticed it. Without Cheryl in the defensive line, the defense constantly clears the ball to the forwards instead of passing through the mid-field. Plus she thought that two of the goals were caused by the girls, who were playing her position.

Cheryl was back in the line-up on Friday. They defeated Golden West College 3-2! Cheryl scored the first goal from a PK. She didn't really want to take it, but the team set the ball up on the penalty spot and waited for her. She finally had to run up from defense to take the kick, and scored! Saddleback finished their season in 6th place (out of 9).

The fires here are terrible! Chris's XC team headed for Mt. Sac for CIF preliminaries. They were ranked 4th in their race (but only by 4 points). They felt that they could make top 3 and move on to the CIF finals. Well, the bus left school on time, but since the freeway was closed (because of the fires) the team missed their race. They were allowed to run with the next race, but only had 20 minutes to warm up. Sadly, they came in 7th... no CIF finals this year. After the race they got back on the bus for a 3 hour long ride home.
