WOLVES CAN’T BUY A POINT

TEMECULA:  The King Wolves traveled to Temecula to take on the Wolfpack of Great Oak High School and collectively both squads couldn’t score, ending in a 0-0 tie. “We couldn’t buy a goal” said head coach Todd Mapes. In the course of the game, his players had two great opportunities to take the go-ahead goal, “but

RIVERSIDE: After enjoying a team dinner the night before around bowls of spaghetti, the King boys soccer team traveled on Tuesday  down Van Buren Blvd to Arlington High School, home of the 4th-ranked soccer team in California. Perhaps it was the dinner, or maybe their “team chemistry” as senior Conrad Beatty describes it, but King played
