Falcons end season in CIF championship
The Scripps Ranch High School varsity boys soccer team closed its exciting season by going all the way to the Boys Soccer 2020 CIFSDS Division 1 Championship Game, only to lose to Rancho Bernardo on Feb. 29. The game was lost on penalty kicks in a heartbreaker.
It was a very physical game, with a lot of pushing and shoving. The officials were definitely letting the boys play. Neither team could score during the regular 80-minute game, sending it into a 15-minute OT. The aggressive play continued and neither team scored. It came down to penalty kicks. Rancho Bernardo scored on two of the five shots that they were given. Scripps Ranch was not able to score any goals.
A strong Scripps Ranch crowd came out to Mission Bay High School to watch and cheer on the varsity soccer team. The stands were filled with parents, student athletes from other sports, cheerleaders and other fans.
