The Newark Memorial Cougars were victorious in the first round of North Coast Section play February 13. In their soccer match with Foothill High School, using a physical and dominating offense, the Cougars emerged with a 3-1 victory. Foothill never found any offense and were on the defense throughout the contest. Newark continually opened the middle, giving easy shots on goal.
Playing catch-up all night, Foothill provided little help for their goaltender who put up a valiant, but futile effort. Newark pressed and appeared to move the ball at will. They will need all their skills when facing their next opponent, De La Salle High, ranked number one in the Division 1 bracket.
