DIAMOND BAR ADVANCES: A near-perfectly played CIF Southern Section soccer playoff game came down a matter of misses.
After visiting Diamond Bar and Monrovia played to a 2-2 tie after 80 minutes of regulation and 20 minutes of overtime, the Brahmas prevailed, outscoring the No. 2 seed Wildcats 3-2 on penalty kicks to advance to Thursday’s Division 5 quarterfinal. The Brahmas will play host to Baldwin Park.

vegascoresVEGA GOES NUTS: Danny Vega was a seldom used freshman when Baldwin Park won a CIF-Southern Section Divisional boys soccer title in 2011.
Now he’s the guiding force to the Braves’ chances of winning their second championship in four years, showing why and how by scoring all four goals in an easy 4-0 victory over visiting Laguna Beach in the second round of the Division 5 playoffs on Tuesday.
Vega scored on a penalty kick in the 13th minute, and worked a text book give-and-go with Jesus Granados to go up 2-0 in the 23rd minute.
Valle Vista league champion Baldwin Park (18-4-2) will be on the road in Thursday’s quarterfinals against Diamond Bar (17-7-1), who outlasted No. 2 seed Monrovia in penalty kicks 3-2 after a 2-2 tie in regulation and two overtimes.

    I think all the boy teams got good second round match ups. We could be looking at least 2 teams advancing and maybe Northview or DB pull off another win for the SGV

    I’ve got Sierra Vista, Baldwin Park and Northview winning, Diamond Bar going down. Northview is my only lock. Sierra Vista, without one of its dynamic duo, could lose. Baldwin Park wills squeeze one out and Diamond Bar has its hands full with Monrovia.

    I’ll be at Baldwin Park today tweeting updates and Keith Lair is covering and updating Diamond Bar-Monrovia for us. If anyone can tweet tonight’s Sierra Vista game or Northview at Citrus Hill, please do.

      I got SV as my lock. They have depth in the bench and I feel that them losing Ocampo wont hurt them until maybe the semis. As for BP and Northview they will be challenged today and I think only BP will be able to squeak by. How great would it be if DB keeps it close and upsets Monrovia

    What a game DB put together!! Congrats!! Northview is in the Qtrs with a 2-1 victory. SV beats La Mirada 3-0. Laguna is no match for BP losing 0-4. Looks like our last 4 teams will be playing on Thursday. Cant get any better than DB hosting BP
