BISHOP AMAT-DIAMOND BAR WILL MEET AGAIN: While Bishop Amat was coasting to a 6-0 victory over Santa Paula in the first round of the CIF-Southern Section Division 3 girls soccer playoffs, Diamond Bar was finishing an incredible comeback, winning 2-1 over Mayfield in sudden-death overtime.
Bishop Amat will meet Diamond Bar in the second round on Wednesday at a site to be determined. It’s a rematch of last year thrilling quarterfinal won by Amat 4-3 in overtime.
“We know they’re (Amat) a great team,” Diamond Bar coach Matt Brummett said. “We look forward to playing them again.”
Diamond Bar’s Marissa Favela, who made an inspiring return to the team late in the season after battling cancer, scored the game-tying goal in the dying seconds of regulation, then scored the game-winner on a 35-yard free kick in overtime to win it for the Brahmas.

DIAMOND BAR PREVIEW: Marissa Favela has fought hard to play in the first-round of Friday’s CIF-Southern Section Division 3 playoff against visiting Mayfield.
While teammates were battling on the field, the Diamond Bar High School girls soccer player took on cancer.
The 16-year-old recently returned to school and the sport she loves so much. Though still recovering her strength, the midfielder has scored goals in the last two games.

    I saw the Poly v Walnut game and wow what a team Pasadena Poly has. Their forward Noel Askins is the truth. She reminds me of Kalya Mills that now plays at USC.
    Walnuts defense lead by Erin Harris held Poly to a 1-0 mark in the 1st half but mid way through the 2nd half Askins , the Keeper and 2 other walnut defenders collided while going after a 50/50 ball. Erin Harris get injured and the flood gates open for Poly. 3 goals in a 10 minute block.
    I have to say that NOEL ASKINS is one the best forwards I have seen this year and ERIN HARRIS is on of the best defenders. IMHO
