    Mr Terrazas, just incase you missed it, EL RANCHO boys soccer took the Torrance tournament over the weekend. They beat two D1 schools in the knockout stages to win 1st place. Give soccer a little love. The best coverage you are going to make as far as area winter sports are concerned, is ER boys soccer. No one else will even come close to accomplishing what they will. FYI, a couple of area teams start the NOCC soccer tournament tomorrow. El Rancho will be playing in the Varsity 1 bracket.
