The Valencia Vikings boys soccer team secured second place in the Foothill League by beating West Ranch for the fourth straight time on Thursday at Valencia High.

Jack Janaszek scored on a set piece to lift Valencia 1-0 over West Ranch in the game, which puts the Vikings at 12-4-4 overall, 5-3-2 in the Foothill League.

“Not bad for a young team,” said Valencia head coach Tony Scalercio.

West Ranch, meanwhile, drops down to 7-9-3, 4-4-2 for third place.

Saugus 4, Golden Valley 2
Saugus scored all four of its goals in the second half after trailing 2-0 early in the game.

The win is significant for Saugus (10-10-3, 3-4-3) because it needed to get to a minimum .500 record to be eligible for a playoff at-large bid. Saugus finished fourth place in league.

“We told the guys, ‘There is now tomorrow if we don’t win today. You have to give everything,” said Saugus head coach Seth Groller.

The scorers for Saugus included Danny Macias (two goals), Caleb Vanderhorst and Trevor Mangan.

For Golden Valley (8-12-4, 2-6-2), Justin Dulay scored on an assist from Brandon Flores and Francisco Perez scored on a penalty kick.

Golden Valley ends up at sixth in the Foothill.

Canyon 2, Hart 1
Canyon scored two quick goals and managed to hold off the Hart Indians who had already wrapped up the Foothill title earlier in the week.

Tyler Rodriguez scored off header and Giovanny Ortiz scored 10 minutes later to make it a 2-0 early Canyon lead.

Hart’s Niall Shaffery scored his team’s only goal just before halftime.

“The boys played well and we actually got the breaks that we couldn’t get all season,” said Canyon head coach Lou Aguilera. “We got all the rolls.”

With the win, Canyon (7-8-7, 2-4-4) passes up Golden Valley for fifth place in league.

Hart ends its regular season 13-5-3, 7-2-1 and in first place.

“They already won league and they just didn’t come to play today,” said Hart head coach Adonay Jovel of his team.
