Cinderella Rowland knocked out: Playing in a steady drizzle, second-seeded Monrovia got two goals from Ulises Avila and dominated the midfield as it knocked off Rowland 3-0 in a quarterfinal game of the CIF-Southern Section Division 6 boys soccer playoffs on Friday.
The Wildcats will play the winner of the Vista del Lago-La Canada game on Tuesday. They would be at home against Vista del Lago and on the road against Rio Hondo League rival La Canada.
“Our center forward (Avila) had the game of his life today,” Wildcats coach Michael Williams said. “He was really a dominant force today, and that’s what it takes is someone who plays with passion, and I was pleased with Brian Nava, who played defensive middle for a player who was coming off an injury.”
