Godinez – The Grizzlies might have lost a transfer to JSerra, but they are still a formidable opponent. They won the on the strength of two victories against rival Saddleback. The Grizzlies outscored the Roadrunners, 3-0, in those two games. The Grizzlies are led by senior forward Danny Lopez who has 15 goals.
Garden Grove – Finished third in the Garden Grove League after winning six of their last seven games. The Argonauts posted five shutouts during that span.
Los Amigos – Rallied to win their fourth Garden Grove League title in a row after beating Santiago 2-0 last week. Cristofer Echeverria knocked in one of the prettiest goals that I have seen this season in that game.
Santiago – Was ranked in the top five of the division, but then they lost to Los Amigos and Rancho Alamitos, costing them the championship. They do have a prolific goal scorer in Jorge Cardenas who has scored 14 goals.
Saddleback – The Roadrunners lost only three league games, two of those coming at the hands of the team that finished fist in the league – Godinez. The Roadrunners know how to put some goals up on the board as they have scored 10, seven and five goals in a single game this season. Mario Guerrero leads the team with 16 goals.
Estancia- The Eagles finished third in the division after going 2-0-4 in their last six games of the season.
Laguna Beach – The Breakers enter the playoffs as an at-large team after going undefeated in their last three games. They outscored their opponents, 8-1 during that span.
