A second half goal by Rancho Cucamonga’s Lauren Perry proved to be the difference in the Cougars’ Baseline League home victory over Los Osos, 2-1, on Jan. 20.
Devyn Kelsey of the Grizzlies provided the early lead with a goal in the first half but it was Olore Imoohi of the Cougars, who was responsible for tying the game after a successful free kick opportunity.
It was the first league win of the season for Rancho Cucamonga (10-2-2, 1-1-1) while the Grizzlies suffer their third straight league loss.

Remember when it used to be a big deal to play soccer on a field turf field?
Well, when I was covering Summit-Ontario girls soccer on Wednesday, Summit coach Steve Jennings pointed out that in some places, momentum has swung the other way.
While Summit played several preseason games at Ralph Lewis Park (with field turf) all of its Sunkist League home games will be at the high school, on grass. This is due in part to the fact that Ralph Lewis Park is having work done, but last year, Summit also moved its league home games to campus.
So, in the six-team Sunkist League, only two schools play home soccer games on grass: Summit and Fontana.
So, perhaps, Jennings reasoned, Summit might have an advantage playing at home because most other teams in the league won’t be as used to playing on grass.
My, how things have changed.
