So I had to cover yet another high school game. This time, I was back at Redlands East Valley but it was a girls quarterfinal match.
REV won again, 1-0 in double overtime on a soft goal off a set piece. This game, though, was even better than the boys game the day before. These girls played well and both sides did well to maintain their composure.
Murrieta Valley - the losing side - was unfortunate. They hit the post twice - once in the 75th minute and the other time early in overtime. I interviewed the girl who rattled the first shot off the woodwork. She was in tears but managed to string some words together, basically telling me that they had their heads held high because no one expected them to get that far.
