HACKBARTH AND SALDANA RETURN TO SPARK 3-0 WIN

CORONA:  Angela Saldana had to wait about a year before donning the uniform again after an ACL injury sidelined her during last season.  Kennedy Hackbarth’s recent injury wasn’t as severe, but enough to keep her out of action, making this the first game of her 2018-19 campaign. Both girls returned to action on Tuesday at Corona

THIRD AT SAN GORGONIO AND GROWING

SOCCER PLAYS THE KING OF HEART

EASTVALE:  After a tough loss to co-leaders of the Big 8 Norco High on Tuesday,   the specter of heading over to Eastvale to take on the other leader of the league in Roosevelt was a daunting one for the girls’ soccer team on Thursday.

THREE DAYS OF RIVAL GAMES ON TAP

Though Riverside Poly is no longer in King’s league, the two schools are as close to a “cross town” rivalry as any. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, that rivalry will kick into high gear. Thursday, the girls’ soccer teams will square off at King, starting at 5:00 PM. Friday girls basketball takes center stage at King,

Murrieta:  At 3-2-3 this season, Coach Smith has the girls soccer program already ahead of where they finished last year.  That much is true. What is also true is that they still have a ways to go to get to where they want to be and that fact was revealed on Tuesday against a very strong

ANOTHER KNOTTY OUTCOME

RIVERSIDE: A hard rain fell on Thursday and the temperatures went with it and the girls’ soccer team endured another game that ended in a tie score.  The Hemet Bulldogs got even with minutes to play and both teams went home drenched, cold and for the most part, exactly where they started. “It was a

IMPROVEMENT IS THE NAME OF THE GAME

The 0-0 tie score at the end of the La Quinta soccer match  King’s girls played on Tuesday doesn’t tell the real score. The real score is that the girls from King are much improved from 2018. La Quinta posed a physical challenge to the Wolves, but Coach Smith’s team played with great teamwork and
