Inland Area Prep Soccer Top 10

1. Moreno Valley Valley View (17-1-3) — The Eagles ran their unbeaten streak to an Inland Area-leading 20 games, and are sure to lock up a top seed when playoff seedings are released this weekend. Senior MF Daniel Roman (5-foot-4, 135 pounds) is among Inland Area leaders with 14 assists.

LAST GAME: def. MoVal Rancho Verde, 3-1, in an Inland Valley League game on 2/2.
NEXT FIXTURE: vs. MoVal Canyon Springs TODAY.

2. Fontana (18-1-0) — The Steelers have scored 45 goals in just eight games in 2012. Think about that for a minute. Think about a team that scores an average of 5.5 goals per game.

LAST RANKED: (No. 2).

5. Hesperia Oak Hills (17-1-5) — The Bulldogs failed to hold on to a 2-1 halftime lead, allowing four goals in the second half of a 5-4 loss to Serrano. “Serrano just wanted it more today,” Oak Hills coach Darren Goodman said to the Victorville Daily Press.

LAST GAME: lost, 5-3, to Phelan Serrano in a Desert Sky League game on 2/3.
NEXT FIXTURE: vs. Hesperia on 2/7.

6. Perris Citrus Hill (17-3-2) — The Hawks put a 12-1 beatdown upon visiting Hemet on Jan. 31, but could only score one-fourth that total in defeating Tahquitz to exted their winning streak to eight games. Senior striker Miguel Garcia-Rosas (5-foot-8, 145 pounds) and senior forward Edurado Zavala (5-7, 134) netted three apiece in the crush of Hemet.
LAST RANKED: (No. 7).
LAST GAME: def. Hemet Tahquitz, 3-1, in a Mountain Pass League game on 2/2.
NEXT FIXTURE: vs. Hemet West Valley TODAY.

7. Riverside Norte Vista (16-3-3) — Have the Braves peaked? Coach Matt Beliveau’s side went to Summit and rolled over last Friday so title talk has probably been zipped with reigning league champ Bloomington next.
LAST RANKED: (No. 6).
LAST GAME: lost, 4-1, at Fontana Summit in a Sunkist League game on 2/3.
NEXT FIXTURE: vs. Bloomington TODAY.

8. Riverside Poly (16-4-3) — The Bears can take care of business against No. 9 King but lose for a second consecutive time vs. Santiago on Monday? This team really is as mercurial as its talent.

LAST GAME: lost, 3-2, to Corona Santiago in a Big VIII League game on 2/6.
NEXT FIXTURE: vs. Corona on WEDNESDAY.

9. Riverside King (17-6-2) — The Wolves bounced back from the loss to No. 8 Poly last week with a big 4-0 win at Roosevelt, but played to an disappointing draw at North on Monday. A win would have brought Coach Todd Mapes’ side even at the top of the Big VIII table with one game to play.
LAST RANKED: (No. 9).
LAST GAME: at Riverside North in a Big VIII League game on 2/6.
NEXT FIXTURE: vs. Corona Centennial WEDNESDAY.

10. San Bernardino Cajon (18-5-3) — The Cowboys are riding high, unbeaten in their last six games while posting a 6-1-3 record thus far in 2012. Senior MF/F Carlos Trinidad (5-foot-7, 155 pounds) has 13 goals and a team-high six assists.
