Hart is No. 2 seed in postseason

first_imgCanyon fell to the fourth seed, and faces a much tougher road toward reaching the semifinals for the first time since 2002. “I was happy that we were placed in the lower bracket, and I think it’s a good draw for us,” said Hart coach Louis Romero, who is looking to lead the Indians to their first division final since 1999. LOS ALAMITOS – Several area girls’ soccer teams won’t have to look far to find scouting reports on their first-round opponents in the Southern Section playoffs or potential matchups they might face along the way to the March 3 championships. Hart of Newhall (22-3-1), which captured its second straight Foothill League title Thursday with a 1-0 victory over Canyon (18-2-4), not only knocked the Cowboys from the top spot in the final Div. II rankings, but ascended to the No. 2 seed when the postseason pairings were released Monday. Desert Christian, which has recorded 13 consecutive shutouts entering the postseason, is seeking its first division title since 2003. The Knights play either Milken Community of Los Angeles (16-3-2) or Bishop Conaty-Loretto of LosAngeles (4-5-3) in Friday’s opener. Harvard-Westlake of Studio City (14-7-5), which won its sixth consecutive Mission League championship, is unseeded in Div. I and faces Glendora (13-9-3) in its postseason opener. Notre Dame of Sherman Oaks (14-4-6), playing its first playoff game since 1998, will host Ventura (9-7-6) to open the Div. I playoffs. Oaks Christian of Westlake Village (11-6-1) has a wild-card match at Crossroads of Santa Monica (8-11-1).

You’re all set!center_img “I don’t think it’s an easy draw by any means, but I think we were pretty lucky compared to Canyon, which has teams like Thousand Oaks and Temecula Valley (in their half of the draw). We’re not going to take any team lightly because right now everyone’s in first place and everyone wants one more game. There’s no freebies for anybody.” Hart ended a run of four consecutive first-round losses last season with a 3-1 victory over Moorpark. The Indians could face the Musketeers (6-4-8) again in Friday’s opening round should Moorpark get past Wednesday’s wild-card game at Quartz Hill (13-6-2). Also in Hart’s quarter of the draw are Arcadia (14-6-3) and Royal of Simi Valley (12-3-6). Canyon will play host to South Hills of Covina (10-3-3) in Friday’s opener, but could face Highland of Palmdale (12-4-7) or Westlake (9-2-8) in the second round. Thousand Oaks (18-4-3) or Crescenta Valley of La Crescenta (14-5-3) possibly await the Cowboys in the quarterfinals. Canyon and Hart were two of the five area teams that received seeds, along with Desert Christian of Lancaster (19-1-2) securing the top spot and Viewpoint of Calabasas (15-3-3) securing No. 3 in Div. VI, and Oak Park (15-4-3) being seeded third in Div. V. last_img read more
