First round predictions of the CIF North Coast Section boys and girls soccer tournament weren't all that bad: 6-1 on the girls side and 10-3 on the boys. In fact, said Clear Lake girls would beat Ferndale, 4-0, and they did. And on the boys side Analy downed Healdsburg, 2-1; and Casa Grande blanked San Rafael, 2-0, both as predicted.
So, now it's time to move on to Saturday's games as things start to get a little more interesting:
