Baldwin Park wins second title in four years: The action, atmosphere and back and forth chances couldn’t have been more entertaining between Baldwin Park and Marshall for the CIF-Southern Section Division 5 boys soccer championship on Friday at Warren High School in Downey.
In the end, though, Baldwin Park had the guy it wanted with the game on the line, striker Danny Vega, who entered with a section-leading 39 goals and a chance to finish off the championship in a dramatic penalty shootout as the final kicker.
Vega didn’t disappoint, burying his final penalty and celebrating wildly as Baldwin Park held off Marshall 5-4 in the penalty shootout after a scoreless regulation and two overtimes to win its second championship in four years to improve to 21-4-2.
“My heart stopped a couple times walking up,” said Vega, who also won a title as a freshman. “I wanted this for our team, for our fans, for everyone. It feels so great to finish like this, the feeling is unbelievable.”
