What a great, couple of weeks we’ve had in Fillmore with our Alma Mater’s Boys Soccer team taking many of us for the ride of a lifetime. They’ve had an incredible season, and it brought them to the CIF Playoffs. They won their first match at home, then they traveled to Victorville, and won there, then they advanced to the CIF Semi Finals and won a barn burner against last year’s CIF Champs. Next up was the CIF Southern Section 7 Championship Soccer Match which was played in Downey, CA. Their opponent was Saddleback Valley H.S. from Orange County, and the Flashes won 5 to 1. The Soccer team won the High Schools 9th CIF Championship in school history. After they won their sectional, they qualified to play in the Southern California Division 5 playoffs. They won their first match, however the season came to an end last Thursday evening when they lost to Shadow Hills H.S. (from Indio, CA.) 0 to 1. It was amazing to see the local support from the community of Fillmore. We really have to say that this team has brought our community together, and really gave us something to be proud of. Our spirits were lifted, and we have our new Champs to thank. There will be a parade and celebration for the team this Thursday evening March 24th.
