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:
