Varsiy: CB Varsity Women’s Soccer Team competed at the River City Tournament this weekend.
Their first game Thursday was against the host, River City High School. The score ended in a tie 0-0. This game was the first game the players played together and used this game to find our new system of play 4-2-3-1.
Friday’s game started off a little flat from the players. It was until Peyton McDonald took it down the line and served a ball for Grace Cloete ‘ 22 to hit the net in the last 4 minutes to win the game. With the tie and a win CB had to win their third game in order to advance to the championship game or consolation game in the afternoon.
The third game we challenged the team to step up their game and play short and simple. The challenge was met and the Lady Falcons beat Benecia 3-0 with 2 goals from sophomore Devin Greer ‘24 and a solo goal from junior Elisabeth Ledesma ‘ 23. This win put our Lady Falcons into the consolation game against Pleasant Grove.
Playing for third place was a great test against a good team. CB took the lead first with a goal from freshman Bailey Rakela ‘25. The goals kept coming as sophomore Devin Greer delivered 2 goals to put CB up 3-0. Pleasant Grove did manage to score one goal but CB delivered one more goal from junior Brooklyn Horst ’23 to seal the victory and a third place finish in the River City Tournament. Next up… The Lady Falcons host Vacaville on Monday. 6:00pm kick off.
Our JV Girls soccer team played in River City Tournament over the weekend (Thurs-Saturday). We played 1st game of the season and beat River City HS 1-0 (goal by Savannah Castillo).

The Falcons were led by Senior John Marengo who scored 42 points in going shot for shot with the entire Elk Grove Team.
Game 2: The Falcons played Franklin High School where they came out sluggish in turning the ball over and giving up 2nd chance points before finding themselves down double digits going into the half. However, the falcons rallied back in the 2nd half in closing the deficit to 3 points with under 2 minutes to go on a three pointer by Exander Irving-Romero. However, the falcons would end up turning the ball over on their next 2 possessions and committing fouls where Franklin sealed the game with free throws. Falcons lose 58-51.
