Men’s Soccer
The men’s soccer team earned a 1-1 tie in a non-conference match at College of Sequoias in Visalia on Friday afternoon.   After falling behind by a goal early in the 2nd half, freshman Jared Watson tied the match with an unassisted goal midway through the half.   With an overall record of 6-2-4, the Falcons have two more non-conference matches this week before resuming the second half of the Big 8 schedule next week.  They will play at West Hills (Lemoore) on Tuesday afternoon, then return home to host Fresno City on Friday evening (6:00 pm).

Women’s Soccer
The women’s soccer team hosted a feisty Cosumnes River squad in pouring rain Friday afternoon, but despite controlling possession time and outshooting the Hawks, lost 1-0.   The Hawks’ lone goal came off a free kick from 20 yards out late in the first half; it struck the crossbar, the ground, the goalkeeper, then trickled over the line for the only goal of the match.   With the loss, the Falcons find themselves in fourth place in the Big 8 Conference at 5-3-1 (10-3-1 overall) but still within striking distance of the teams ahead of them.  The Falcons continue the second half of the Big 8 schedule by hosting conference leader Santa Rosa (7-2) on Tuesday afternoon at 3:30.

Women’s Volleyball
The women’s volleyball team lost a heartbreaking 5-set match at Diablo Valley Friday night by the scores of 22-25, 25-15, 25-17, 22-25, and 9-15.   With a Big 8 Conference record of 4-4, the Falcons are tied for 5th place and begin the second-half schedule on Wednesday night at Sacramento City.  They’ll return home to host Santa Rosa on Friday night.
