“To tell you the truth, I don’t know anything about Bassett,” he said. “I’m focused on our team and how we perform. That’s my priority.” And what of the possibility of playing La Ca ada in an all-area Division V final? “I’m not even thinking about that,” Plummer said. “We’ve got our hands full over here.” If performances against like opponents is any indicator of success, the La Ca ada boys soccer team is in for a tough match in today’s CIF-SS Division V semifinal against host Salesian at 3 p.m. The Spartans (14-8-2) and Mustangs (20-2-1) squared off against Woodland Hills El Camino Real (17-7-4) and Los Angeles Cathedral (16-6-3). “There’s nothing to teach at this point,” Marshall coach Claine Plummer said. “We just went over tactics, what’s worked for us and what hasn’t.” While the Eagles host a dangerous Bassett team (18-3-2) that is riding a 14-game unbeaten streak, Plummer is only concerned about one squad. Practice was relatively light Monday afternoon for the Marshall High boys soccer team. For the Eagles (14-5-3), the Pasadena Star-News preseason No. 1 squad, Monday was a day of fine-tuning in preparation for today’s CIF-Southern Section Division V playoff semifinal at home at 3 p.m. While La Ca ada struggled to an 0-1-1 record against those squads, the Mustangs had a much easier time. Salesian went 2-0, including an impress 3-0 win over Cathedral, which is playing in today’s Division IV semifinals. It would seem natural for La Ca ada to feel some pressure, but coach Jordan Jones has a different view. “Honestly, this is beyond a lot of our expectations,” Jones said. “None of our playoff games have been easy.” The La Salle girls soccer team, faces a large hurdle in Apple Valley Granite Hills, looking to advance to its first CIF-SS championship game since 2002, ranked No. 2 in Division IV, today at 3 p.m. Forget the 160-mile round trip through the desert. The third-seeded Lancers (22-2-2) might find their path to the opposing goal more arduous. In Granite Hills (20-2-4), La Salle not only is trying to topple the defending Division V co-champions, but also hoping to score against one of the state’s best defenses. By defeating visiting Lompoc Cabrillo 4-0 in last Friday’s quarterfinal, the Cougars recorded their school-record 19th shutout in only 26 games. “Like La Salle, our defense is senior-laden,” Granite Hills coach Michael Bradbury said. “Everyone of our starters was at last March 4th’s championship game, so honestly, we are very experienced.” La Salle also would be wise to look after Cougars junior forward Emily Ochoa, who has a couple of two-goal games this postseason. “It’s about consistency on this team, as I imagine consistency is also important to La Salle,” Bradbury said. “When you’ve gone this far do you change anything? No.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!
