Soccer postgame: Braves sneak by, 1-0

The Baldwin Park boys soccer team improved to 18-1, but it wasn’t easy. Northview gave them everything they could handle before losing 1-0 on a penalty kick in the 57th minute converted by Edgar Padilla. The Braves dominated in the second half, but as well as the Vikes played, they didn’t deserve to lose on a silly penalty-kick call that normally isn’t called in a situation like that. The small bumpy field didn’t help the Braves, but they played well in the second half and deserve to be ranked No. 1 when the new rankings come out next week.
