Glendora settles for 0-0 tie with Claremont to share Palomares girls soccer title

It was fitting that Glendora and Claremont’s girls soccer teams posed together for pictures following Wednesday’s 0-0 tie that resulted in a share of the Palomares League title, because both teams shared chances and opportunities that just wouldn’t fall.
For Claremont (18-4-1, 9-1), the tie had extra meaning, because the Wolfpack, ranked fourth in CIF Southern Section Division 3, will head to the playoffs as the league’s top team by virtue of beating Glendora 4-1 in its prior encounter to earn the head-to-head nod over the Tartans (17-5-1, 9-1), ranked seventh in Division 3.“It was a good game by two good teams,” Claremont coach Tim Tracey said. “We knew we were going to have our hands full with Glendora. But we also knew what leaving here with a tie meant. It’s always nice to go the playoffs as the top team.”

Glendora obviously wanted to come away with the victory, but first-year coach Steve Jimenez talked about the positives that his team can build on.
“Welcome to the Palomares league,” Jimenez explained. “Every game in this league is a battle. We wanted the league title by ourselves but at the end of the day, this is the first girls soccer title in Glendora history, so we’ll build on this and take this momentum to the playoffs.”
Claremont forced the pace early and nearly took the lead in the 30th minute on a goal that was called back on offside.
A few minutes later, forward Lexi Deahl got around Glendora goalkeeper Sarah Reyes in the 35th minute, but her open netter floated over the crossbar.
Glendora was also fortunate to escape two tackles in the box in the final moments of the half that easily could have resulted in Claremont penalty kicks.
But Glendora had its chances in the first half too, particularly on set pieces, but it couldn’t put shots on frame or get on the end of crosses and corners.
Reyes saved Glendora in the early minutes of the second half, turning away two point-blank shots from Claremont’s Mackenzie Boulware. It was a spark that allowed Glendora to regain some momentum.
“I’ve always said bigtime players come up in big games,” Jimenez said. “She made some big saves that kept the game at zero, that’s all you can ask from your (goalkeeper).”
Glendora’s two bigtime strikers, Texas Tech-bound Alexis Rushlow and Washington State signee Hanna Goff, had a few chances, but not enough.
A lot of credit goes to Wolfpack central defender Hope Hyland and her outside backs for doing their best to contain the Tartans’ duo.
“It’s always really tough playing Glendora, they have Rushlow, Goff and all these good players,” Hyland said. “It’s good we tied, but I wish we would have won.”
In the two overtimes, Claremont hit the post and Rushlow nearly broke free in the final minute to win it.
