Holy Cougar! How about Rancho…

Holy, Cougar!

Well, the Rancho Cotate Cougars certainly did their part to jumble the North Bay League boys soccer standings on Tuesday. They went to Rincon Valley and beat the Maria Carrillo Pumas, 3-1, on their home field.

And that result really makes Thursday’s matchup between Carrillo and the Montgomery Vikings at Montgomery interesting. The Vikings have seemingly come out of nowhere with a new coach, a fresh lineup and a new attitude and now can become the dominant NBL force with a win on Thursday night.

But back to the present, tonight we see if the Santa Rosa girls can do to Carrillo and the NBL standings what the Cougars did on the boys side.

Can they? I honestly don’t know how they will slow down Mohr and Tosti, but if they do they’ll have a chance.

Following are some predictions for Wednesday night’s girls games…


Montgomery at Elsie Allen, 5 p.m.

PREDICTION: Montgomery 7, Elsie Allen 1

Another easy one for the Vikings.

Rancho Cotate at Piner, 5 p.m.

PREDICTION: Rancho Cotate 4, Piner 0
FINAL: Rancho Cotate 6, Piner 0

Cougars inspired by the boys effort on Tuesday.

Ursuline at Ukiah, 6 p.m.

PREDICTION: Ursuline 3, Ukiah 1
FINAL: Ursuline 3, Ukiah 0

Long trip, relatively easy win for the Bears.

Maria Carrillo at Santa Rosa, 7 p.m.

PREDICTION: Santa Rosa 2, Maria Carrillo 2 (OT)
FINAL: Maria Carrillo 6, Santa Rosa 0

Late goal to tie for the Pumas who will be glad to escape without a loss.


El Molino at Healdsburg, 7 p.m.

PREDICTION: Healdsburg 4, El Molino 2
FINAL: Healdsburg 1, El Molino 0

Not a whole lot of defense in this one.

Sonoma Valley at Windsor, 7 p.m.

PREDICTION: Windsor 3, Sonoma Valley 2
FINAL: Windsor 4, Sonoma Valley 0

Dragons head north expecting a win, but they won’t fine one.
