Both boys and girls soccer continued in the Mission Valley and the Hayward Area athletic leagues with an exciting week of contested games.

MVAL
Wednesday, Jan. 12
It was a couple of shutout wins on Wednesday at Tak for Newark Memorial (3-0 vs. Washington) and James Logan high schools (3-0 vs. Irvington). Joel Sandoval, Eric de la Pena and Alex Ramirez all scored second-half goals for Newark in their win; and after taking a 1-0 halftime lead (courtesy of an Alejandro Mendoza goal), Gustavo Ulloa scored a pair in the second half to lead Logan over Irvington.

Tuesday, Jan. 11
American met Logan's explosive offense and were blown away, 6-2 at home. The matchup between Mission San Jose and Washington was a much tighter bout, featuring Washington taking an early 2-1 lead in the first period and Mission San Jose furiously rallying back only to fall short, 4-3. Newark Memorial broke a scoreless tie with Irvington by scoring a late goal and completed the shutout, 1-0.

Thursday, Jan. 13
Logan vs. Newark Memorial featured a scoreless first half until a goal in the 58th minute by Logan Colt Julia Shockey. Irvington continued Mission San Jose's slide behind the efforts of Heidi Moreno, who scored two goals. Mission's Kylie Moltzen scored a goal in the 23rd minute but from then on, Irvington's stingy defense shut down Mission's offense. Irvington scored two goals in three tries while Mission scored just one in seven tries, with Irvington goalkeeper Kimberley Mclaughlin amassing seven saves. American bounced back from its home loss to Logan in a 2-0 shutout over Kennedy. Logan stands upon the MVAL(5-0-0) with Irvington (3-2-0), Mission San Jose (2-2-1) and American (2-2-1) close behind.

Friday, Jan. 14
In a trio of games in MVAL on Friday, there were three convincing wins. Newark kept its roll going with a 4-0 win at Tak over Mission San Jose. Edward Ramirez, Alfredo Navarro and Danny Villa were credited with goals for Newark (13-3, 3-0 MVAL). Logan remained perfect in MVAL play with a 3-0 win over John F. Kennedy at Tak. After a scoreless first half, Logan (8-4-2, 3-0 MVAL) erupted for three in the second. Ulloa scored twice and Juan Carlos Romero-Pacheco scored the other. Washington topped Irvington 3-1 in the final of three games at Tak.

HAAL
Tuesday, Jan. 11
All the local HAAL boys teams were on the losing end for the action on Tuesday. Moreau Catholic (2-0 at Arroyo), Mt. Eden (2-1 at San Lorenzo) and Tennyson high schools (3-1 vs. Bishop O'Dowd) weren't able to start the week off on the right foot, losing ground to San Lorenzo (5-1-0) who leads the way.

Wednesday, Jan. 12
Arroyo continued its dominant ways behind star player Christina Perez's three goals, one of which was scored on a hat trick. Karla Uribe and Desiree Mesa also joined in the scoring party with a goal apiece. Bishop O' Dowd, however, topped Arroyo's performance by ripping Tennyson for an 8-0 victory and only allowing Tennyson to attempt 2 shots. Hayward topped Redwood Christian on a late goal by Hannah Levno, 1-0, and completed the Wednesday of shutouts. In boys soccer action on Wednesday, Arroyo topped Hayward High, 2-0, giving the Farmers only their second HAAL loss of the year (6-2).

Thursday, Jan. 13
Both Hayward and Mt. Eden bounced back from their losses earlier in the week. Mt. Eden (9-4-3, 5-2-1 HAAL) got its bounce back win over San Leandro, 3-1. Hayward, just a day after its loss to Arroyo, took care of business against Castro Valley, 2-0. Luis Castillo and Catalino Gomez were the goal scorers for the Farmers (7-2-3, 6-2 HAAL).

Friday, Jan. 14
Arroyo faced a resilient Redwood Christian team, but the Dons' stingy defense held firm and only allowed Redwood Christian to take one shot, which they missed. Redwood Christian, however, refused to go quietly and their goalkeeper amassed ten saves, allowing three in a 3-0 win for Arroyo. Tennyson was shutout for Moreau Catholic, 3-0, denying Tennyson their first league victory. Bishop O'Dowd leads the HAAL, taking over Arroyo's spot after a perfect week with Castro Valley and Arroyo in the hunt.
