GOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAALLLLLLLLL!!!!!!

Boys soccer

Healdsburg Tournament

Analy vs. Rancho Cotate, 2:45 p.m.

Seriously, Rancho may be improving but not this fast..
FINAL: Analy 3, Rancho Cotate 0

Arcata vs. Cardinal Newman, 4 p.m.
Prediction: Arcata 1, CN 0
Arcata will be just a tad too physical for the Cardinals.

Mission vs. Fort Bragg, 5:15 p.m.
Prediction: Mission 3, Fort Bragg 2
I know zero about both of these teams, just a hunch guess.

Healdsburg vs. Elsie Allen, 6:30 p.m.
Prediction: EA 2, Healdsburg 1
Not a good start for the tournament hosts, but the Lobos have a solid program.

Non-league

Sonoma Valley at Santa Rosa, 7 p.m.

The Panthers simply reloaded this season. The Dragons will get better as the season goes along.

Piner will be another team that will improve, but it will take awhile.
