Game starts at 7 p.m. on Foothill's fields

Amador Valley High School's varsity lacrosse team will play against No. 1-ranked Foothill High Falcons at 7 p.m. tonight in the North Coast Section finals.

Amador, now ranked No. 5 in EBAL, defeated Monte Vista High Saturday in the North Coast Section playoffs with a 6-5 victory in overtime. The Monte Vista Mustangs were ranked No. 4 in the East Bay Athletic League.

HUGE game - this is the semi-finals, and the winners meet up with the victor in the De La Salle/San Ramon Valley game, also taking place on Wednesday night.

Finals for NCS are being held at Dublin High School on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. according to the NCS CIF website.

Go Falcons!

This is great to have both our local teams playing this round. Good luck to both!

(However, the article doesn't mention that this is the Boys/Mens varsity lacrosse team ... it makes it sound as if there is only ONE kind of varsity lacrosse at either Amador or Foothill. The Girls/Womens teams at both schools exist and have played exceptionally well this year.)

Great game tonight - with Foothill taking it to the Finals on Friday night vs. De La Salle at Dublin High School. 7 p.m.

Foothill 8, Amador 3

These Foothill/Amador boys have played together for 6+ years - it's sad to see the Senior season ending - great game tonight though and looking forward to the NCS finals on Friday night! Go Falcons!

I played for Foothill on the 2002 team. What a great experience! One of our players went on to become a 3-time All-American for BYU... Glad to see that the program is still doing well!
