The Richmond High boys soccer team has enjoyed an historic year that just got better with its 2-1 win over Antelope in the first round of the inaugural CIF Northern California Soccer Division II Championship Tournament, according to a report by the West Contra Costa Unified School District (WCCUSD).

On Thursday, the Oilers head to San Jose to face No. 2 Bellarmine College Prep at 3:15 p.m.

This is the first year that playoff play for boys soccer extended beyond the North Coast Section tournament to a tournament that features teams from throughout Northern California. On Feb. 24, the Oilers reached the NCS Division II championship game before falling 2-1 to Montgomery-Santa Rosa.

Along with the team reaching its 18th NCS playoff berth, head coach Rene Siles surpassed the 300-win mark this season, according to WCCUSD.

For those who couldn’t attend the Oilers’ victory on Tuesday, the school district provides a good summary of the highlights:

“The Oilers’ Nole Cordova scored off an assist from Roberto Gonzalez with five minutes left in the game to break a 1-1 tie and give host Richmond (14-2-9) a 2-1 win over Antelope in the first round of inaugural California Interscholastic Federation Northern California Soccer Division II Championship Tournament.
Senior Santos Argueta opened the scoring for Richmond early in the second half taking an assist from freshman Octavio Munoz to put the Oilers up 1-0. Goalie Alejandro Rodriguez led the Richmond defense, helping limit Antelope (17-6-1) ..to one goal. The Titans had scored 16 goals in their past four games.”
