Barry Turner, who coached the Foothill boys soccer team for 23 years, died at his home on Thursday with his wife, Leanne, by his side, ending his 31/2-year battle with ALS. He was 49.
He first started feeling the effects of the disease in January 2011, when he lost the use of his left arm.
But as the season went on,
FULLERTON – As soon as Mike Schade was in range, the Sunny Hills boys soccer team let their coach have it, dumping every bottle of water that they had over his head.
Yeah, it’s only July and still about five months away from when the matches start counting for real.
But on Thursday, the Lancers accomplished one of the
Sunny Hills always seems to have one of the best defenses in boys high school soccer, but the group of defenders that the Lancers put on the field this winter might turn aout to be among the stingiest the school has ever had.
Only twice in 600 minutes of soccer the past month have the Lancers allowed a goal, one of them came on Mon
Valencia knew what was coming in the second half. The Tigers even made an adjustment to their defensive shape, dropping one defender back deeper into the box.
But nothing could stop Leonardo Morales on Monday as the Fullerton senior forward seemed to be able to run right down the middle of the field at will, scoring two goals to lead the

More than anything else, Century coach Bruce Silverman felt a great sense of relief this season.
After years of close calls and near-misses, Silverman finally guided the Centurions into a CIF-SS championship match.
And it appeared the entire school wanted to be a part of the moment. Five buses, filled to capacity with stud
If a soccer player was judged solely on individual statistics, it would appear that Servite junior JT Cook didn’t have much of an impact on the field this season.
Cook usually worked deep in the Friars’ defensive third, yards and yards away from the spotlight shining on Servite’s goal-scoring, headlines-stealing

DOWNEY – After losing in the CIF-SS Division 6 final, the St.Margaret's boys soccer team had a second chance to leave a lasting impression on the 2013-14 season.
That's exactly what the Tartans did Friday night.
Behind a first-half goal from Dane Lind, a second-half goal from Owen Smith and another stingy defe
SAN DIEGO - As she was being removed from the game, Taylor Klawunder ran toward the Santa Margarita sideline. Before she reached the bench, Klawunder dropped to her knees and kissed the turf at Cathedral Catholic High.
Her team was out of answers, and her high school career was out of time.

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO – This season, St Margaret’s boys soccer coach Andrew Maysaid, has been about building memories. And thanks to a pair of goals from Daniel Lind, the Tartans will get another chance to make it one they will likely remember for some time.

San Clemente coach Mike Pronier said he thought his boys soccer team “might have finally turned the corner.”
Shootouts have become quite a stumbling block for the Tritons as San Clemente had seen its postseason come to an end in three of the four matches that have been decided on penalty kicks. This time, though, it ap

He scored the Tritons’ only goal in the CIF-SS Division 1 championship match on Saturday night. It was his 26th goal, which puts him in a tie for third in the county.
San Clemente, the top-ranked team in the state according to Maxpreps, earned the No. 3 seed in Division 1 when the brackets were announced Sunday for the CIF Southern California Regional Boys Soccer Championships.

DOWNEY – San Clemente had a lead. It just never really had control.
The Tritons' valiant run to defend their CIF-SS Division 1 title ended in the finals, where they lost to top-seeded Loyola of Los Angeles, 3-1, Saturday at Warren High.
It was the first time all season third-seeded San Clemente had surrendered three goals i
CORONA – The St. Margaret’s boys soccer team reluctantly posed for a team photo, not having much to smile about, and then exchanged a few hugs before walking off the field at Corona High.
This was not how the Tartans thought their season was going to end.
After holding its previous four playoff opponents scoreless, th
Saturday could be remembered as the greatest day in the history of Orange County high school sports.
You don't believe us? OK, consider this:
There were 17 county teams competing for CIF-SS titles in basketball and soccer.
Those teams were taking part in 15 championship games.
All of it happened in one day and eve
CORONA – Anaheim boys soccer coach Joe Chavez said a CIF-SS championship wasn't out of the question for his team before the season started, but it wasn't in the discussion.
This year's Colonists will be a team that will be discussed at the school for quite awhile.
Anaheim took advantage of every opportunity on offens
