Let’s take a look at how our teams are doing
Tuesday night the Boys Basketball Team won at Irvine 65-30 to stay in the race for the third and final playoff spot in the Pacific Coast League. Senior forward Ryan Pham scored 18 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to pace the Trojans. Junior guard Alex Bray, the PCL’s leading scorer, added 15 while junior guard Kevin Yahampath scored eight points and dished off eight assists. Senior guard Joe Christensen hit four three pointers and played good defense in shutting down Irvine’s leading scorer. Last Friday, the Trojans fell to league leading Corona del Mar. Alex Bray scored 21 points to lead the Trojans.
Tonight, 2/9, Uni will host Woodbridge, a team it has defeated twice this season. If the Trojans win, they finish third and clinch a playoff spot. If Woodbridge wins, Uni will play a third place playoff game on Friday. Details would be announced on Friday morning.
Come out and support the Lady Trojans for their last league game of the season tonight (2/9) at 5:30 PM v Woodbridge. It is going to be a great game! Good luck ladies!
Last Thursday the varsity team tied CDM 1-1. Goal by Luis Moros, his 11th of the year. Assist by Pedro Palmaka, his 11th of the year.
On Tuesday we beat Irvine 2-0. Goals by Sam Kelley (2) his 7th and 8th. Assists by Darious Abdollahi (2) his 8th and 9th .
Boys are now 15-1-2 on the year and Ranked #1 in the division by Max Preps.
We end League on Today, (2/9) in the stadium at 3:15 against Woodbridge, and then it’s on to CIF as hopefully one of the top 2 seeds in CIFSS. Come out and support the team today at 3:15 in the Uni Stadium! Good luck boys!
The girls soccer team is finishing up the regular season with an amazing record. Going into the last game of the regular season against Woodbridge, the girls varsity team is 13-7-2. Almost double the amount of wins than last season and absolutely peaking in the style of play and quality of work rate. The team is pumped and excited to enter the CIF playoffs and is determined to complete their team goal of reaching the 3rd round of the playoffs. Wish us luck.
Come out and support the Girls today (2/9) in their Game of the Week v Woodbridge at 5:15 in the Uni Stadium! Good luck girls!
