Grass Valley has been a difficult place to visit historically for Sierra Foothill League soccer teams. Nevada Union always seems to hold a significant home field advantage over most opponents that come calling, and Thursday's visit from Oakmont was no exception. The Vikings had one goal that appeared to be pulled back after it has carried beyond the goal line disallowed, and there was no other scoring as the teams played to a scoreless draw. "It the game was scored by number of passes, we would win easily," said Oakmont coach Sondra Myles. "We are having a hard time finishing at the goal." Junior midfielder Taylor O'Meara continued to play well for Oakmont, and sophomore Kendall Boshart also had a strong game for the Vikings, who continue to look for the combination that will put them over the top. Despite having just one league win, Oakmont (1-3-3 in the SFL, 1-4-6 overall) is far from out of the race as league-leading Roseville (5-1, 9-2-3) and second place Woodcreek (3-2-2, 7-5-3) are the only teams with more than two wins thus far. Of the 24 league games contested so far in the Sierra Foothill League girls soccer chase, eight have ended in a tie and that means the race for the three playoff spots is likely to come down to the wire, and no one can yet be counted completely out of it. Oakmont gets it shot at the front-runner Tuesday when the Vikings visit Roseville for a 3:30 p.m. contest.
