Saugus returned the favor by knocking the Indians out of the Southern Section Div. II playoffs with a 2-1 victory in the regular-season finale. The Centurions, who held Coutin without a goal, climbed into a second-place tie with Valencia. The Vikings (6-8-4, 2-2-0), who finished a half-game behind Canyon last season, can improve their bid for an eighth consecutive playoff berth with a victory over the Cowboys today at 4:45 p.m. at Canyon. Valencia was the last team to win a league title before the Cowboys’ run began, accomplishing the feat in 2001. Before that, Hart won seven consecutive league titles, sharing the crown with Saugus in 1995, the Centurions’ last championship. With a 2-0 victory Tuesday over Valencia, Saugus has the league’s longest current unbeaten streak at nine games. Hart has won 12 of 13 games, the only loss being a 4-2 setback against El Camino Real of Woodland Hills in the Dec. 29 championship game of the Indians’ tournament. “Beating Canyon was a big win for us,” Hart coach Louis Romero said. “But it’s very important for us to take it one team at a time, and the next team for us is Saugus.” Not losing hope: Canyon coach Steve Ladanyi hasn’t given up on his team’s bid to win a fifth consecutive title. He knows things must go precisely to form in the final six games for the Cowboys to have a chance at sharing the championship. “The good news is we get to play (Hart and Saugus) again, and they play each other twice,” Ladanyi said. “We need to win out and hope that they split, and then we’ll rely on coin flips (to determine playoff seeding) after that.” Canyon, which has gone 31-1-8 in Foothill play the past four years, lost to Hart and Saugus in a four-day span this season. “Right now, we have to focus on two things, and that’s winning league and making the playoffs,” Ladanyi said. “As long as we’re in the playoffs, I still think we can beat anyone they put in front us. We proved that (by beating second-ranked Buena of Ventura) in the Buena tournament.” Erik Boal, (818) 713-3607 email@example.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

No longer are Hart and Saugus chasing Canyon. Instead, the Indians and Centurions are trying to keep pace with each other. Hart snapped Canyon’s 22-game league unbeaten streak Jan. 10 with a 3-2 victory. Three days later, Saugus ended a 15-match winless streak against the Cowboys with a 1-0 triumph. Although Canyon isn’t out of the running for a fifth consecutive league title, the Cowboys (9-3-3 overall, 2-2-0 Foothill) will complete the first round of play in no better than third place. Hart (17-3-0, 4-0-0) and Saugus (12-1-1, 4-0-0) square off for first place at Hart today at 3:15 p.m. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card “Canyon was our biggest game, emotion-wise, but it wasn’t the game,” Saugus coach Lisa Rollo said. “Anytime we play Canyon, there’s so much hype, so to win is huge. But right now, Hart is our biggest test.” Saugus, which boasts one of the area’s toughest defenses, has given up only one goal in league play and seven in 14 games this season. The Centurions also rely on talented midfielders Betsy Kyle, Dani Morin, Courtney Moses, Erin Ortega and Amanda Terry. Hart, which has 12 shutouts in 20 games, is known for an explosive offense. The Indians have scored 87 goals, led by sophomore Sarina Coutin’s 31 and junior Brittany Clark’s 17. Coutin tied Laura Qualls’ 1997 school record for goals in a season with a pair in Tuesday’s 5-0 victory over Burbank. She has 51 goals in 43 career games. The Centurions lost only once during league competition last season, a 3-2 setback to Hart, in which Coutin scored a goal and added two assists.
DES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake University women’s soccer team continues its homestand on Friday night as Indiana State visits the Cownie Soccer Complex for Missouri Valley Conference action. First kick with the Sycamores is set for 7 p.m. and the match will be broadcast on The Valley on ESPN3. Freshman Hannah Bormann (Amana, Iowa) earned her second career MVC Newcomer of the Wek award the same day as Rodgers was awarded player of the week. Bormann, a forward, assisted on two of Rodgers’ goals in the victory over the Crusaders. In her first season, she leads the team in assists with four and has scored one goal. Bormann was previously named MVC Newcomer of the Week on Sept. 18. Drake is 8-3-1 overall and 1-0 in the MVC after its 4-2 win over Valparaiso in its Valley opener. The Bulldogs have won five-straight matches and are 7-1-1 in their past nine games with the lone loss during that span to then No. 16 Wisconsin. Following Friday’s game, Drake hosts UNI on Oct. 10 at 7 p.m. The Panthers are off to hot start at 10-1-1 and 2-0 in MVC play, going into their Saturday match at Missouri State. Drake and UNI have battled to three consecutive draws in the head-to-head series. Print Friendly Version Drake’s defense is another piece to its success in 2017. The backline of seniors Kasey Hurt (Ankeny, Iowa), Brooke Salisbury, Ali Smith (Lenexa, Kan.) and junior Linda Fiorito (Overland Park, Kan.) and senior goalkeeper Haley Morris (Clive, Iowa) have recorded four shutouts and held teams to one goal in three other wins. Smith (1st), Salisbury (2nd), Hurt (3rd), Gorom (4th) and Fiorito (5th) comprise the top-five on the team in minutes played. Midfielder Rebecca Rodgers (Peotone, Ill.) is one of the key pieces fueling Drake this year. Rodgers has claimed back-to-back MVC Player of the Week award winners, the latest coming after she recorded her second career hat trick in the Valpo victory. She has found the back of the net eight times in the past six games, and has nine goals on the season to rank second in the league. Rodgers, who continues to add to her program-leading career goals total, currently ranks 18th in the NCAA in goals/game at .75. Indiana State (5-6-1, 0-2 MVC) dropped its last two matches to Missouri State and UMKC. The Sycamores beat the Bulldogs twice in 2016, including winning in penalty kicks in the MVC Tournament quarterfinals in Terre Haute, Ind. Drake leads the all-time series with a 12-4-2 advantage.
