Pumas & Wildcats; & Wednesday's (10/15) predictions

Maria Carrillo women’s team beats Montgomery.
Yes, a surprise.
Yes, an upset.
Or, considering that the Vikings beat Carrillo earlier in the season, at home, in overtime maybe we should have seen this one coming.
But…being the first-ever night game at Carrillo had to give the Pumas a little extra incentive.
Now, the questions are: How will Montgomery rebound and will that game be the Pumas’ season highlight?

Updating Ukiah: The Wildcat men’s team is on a roll with three consecutive wins (Elsie Allen, 2-1; Piner, 2-0; Santa Rosa, 4-2). The score printed in the PD for the Santa Rosa game on Tuesday night was the jayvee result, which the Panthers did win, 3-1.
In the SR/Ukiah varsity game, Jose “Pepe” Hernandez scored all four Wildcat goals.
The Wildcats travel to Montgomery for a Thursday game.



Ukiah is still doing its best to promote soccer in its community. Here is an update from assistant varsity coach Jack Murphy:
“This past Sunday we hosted the Men’s Soccer Championship games. There were about 700 fans at the two games and the Ukiah soccer program raised over $1,000 from the event.
“As you know we want to host Saturday night games in the future. This is an example of what is possible if we encourage soccer to be another spectator sports on the weekends for high schools. There is a lot of money to be made for our local high school sports programs if we all encourage this concept. The problem I am running into is getting other people on board to support this idea. I would like to see other high schools play games on the weekends. One issue that needs to be resolved is getting school administrators to cover the games on the weekends. I think this problem can be overcome if the schools see the bigger picture for their sports programs.”
