Could the Damien soccer team continue on just like basketball? What a surprise. Not surprisingly is finding Baldwin Park, Rosemead, Mountain View and Sierra Vista in the second round, with all four having a great opportunity to advance to Friday’s quarterfinals. La Puente will have a tough time against North Torrance. Hopefully there’s no letdown after their dramatic 4-3 first round win over Bishop Amat.
Game Highlights: The second round of the playoffs sometimes provides a scare for the higher-seeded teams, but the Baldwin Park High School boys soccer team continues getting stronger.
Junior striker Edgar Padilla scored twice, and freshman Ruben Zamarripa added another as the Braves easily disposed of visiting Garden Grove Santiago 3-1 in the second round of the Division V playoffs on Wednesday.
