The Temecula Valley High School Lady Golden Bears Varsity Soccer team (20-3-3) ran all over the Claremont High School Wolfpack in the first round of CIF playoffs.
Temecula Valley senior striker Darla Guajardo scored the first goal in the first period. After an injury scare for TVHS that delayed the game, striker Nicole Robertson scored what would have been the second goal for Temecula Valley. Unfortunately, the point was recalled because of a technicality. One minute later, freshman Christine Maurer scored, giving Temecula a 2-0 lead going into the half.
Claremont reached the inside of the goal one time, but it, too, was recalled on a penalty.
TVHS is now on to the sweet sixteen round of the CIF playoffs and travels February 26 to Manhattan Beach to face the #5 team in the state, Mira Costa Mustangs (21-3-3), who shut out Royal 2-0 to advance.
