Boys Soccer kicks off CIF Season

James Kil, Asst. Sports Editor

After winning the CIF Wild Card game against Templeton last week, the 17-5-2 Diamond Bar soccer team was put to a stop by Norte Vista High School in the last two minutes of overtime, losing 1-0.

“When we play together, we’re about as strong a team as there is out there in our division. We had one of the better defenses the schools had in many years, so we did a lot of things right this year. But we fell short in league,” coach Kemp Wells said.

In the game against the Templeton Eagles last week, DB demolished the Eagles. Senior co-captains Guy Horcasitas and Andre Gamboa led the Brahmas throughout the game. In the first half, Gamboa and Horcasitas ran through the Eagles defense, scoring three goals by the end of the first half. Running with their momentum, the two captains each scored another point, winning the wild card game, 5-0.

“Templeton was a great way to start off CIF because it allowed up to perform what we practiced perfectly,” senior Kevin Kueter said.
