Girls ready for playoffs

Express sports

You have to beat the best to be the best and that’s what the Winters High School girls soccer team will have to do if they want to four peat as section champions this year.
Once again, the Warriors got the raw end of the deal when it comes to seeding but they have overcome it before and they can do it again.
Winters will host Willows on Thursday, Feb. 16, as the number three seed behind number one University Prep and number two Williams.
The Warriors will match up with Williams in round two if both teams win their first game but that game would be played in Williams.
“Yes, we got tripped up again with the Section’s ‘head to head’ rule,” said coach Jerry Evanoff.
“I can’t tell you how proud I am of this team. We actually ended up the number two seed by points but were flipped with number three Williams.
“It’s somewhat fitting that we have the most challenging path to the Section Title this year. Its’ unfortunate that we will have only one home playoff game for sure. However, the SVL was a league of great parity and toughest in division three this season,” he added.
“I believe Esparto will give Uprep all they can handle, and if they prevail, and we get by Williams, the party will be in our Village. Regardless, they’re coming in as the hottest team in the division, very much united in purpose. This team is peaking at an opportune moment and we hope to make it a very exciting playoff tournament.”
