Sunny Hills forced to forfeit 11 games


The Sunny Hills boys soccer team, which has been among the top five teams in the Orange County poll for most of the season, has been forced to forfeit six nonleague and five Freeway League matches, school officials announced Tuesday.

The Lancers violated CIF-SS Article 60, which bars players from competing for an outside team during the high school soccer season. On Sunday, a soccer coach for another school within the Fullerton Joint Union School District informed called Sunny Hills coach Mike Schade that two of the Lancers' players had allegedly violated the rule.

The statement issued by Sunny Hills said both players acknowledged they knew they were violating the rule. They have been suspended and removed from the team.

Schade declined to comment because the incident is still under investigation.

The Lancers, who are tied for first with Paramount in the most recent CIF-SS Division 2 poll, were 16-1-0 overall and 6-0-0 in league through last week's games. The Lancers had not allowed a goal in their first six league games.

The Lancers will have to forfeit their league games against Buena Park, Sonora and Troy and two games against Fullerton plus six undisclosed nonleague games. Sunny Hills can keep its victory against La Habra on Jan. 9 since neither player participated in that game.
