BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — The Garces Memorial Rams’ bid for a third-straight SoCal Regional finals appearance fell short Thursday night at Sam Tobias Field.
The boys’ team entered the semifinal match against Riverside-Norte Vista with a 14-0 record this season. Elijah Topilla scored a goal early in the second half to give his team the lead, but the Braves tied the match with a penalty kick late and won in overtime.
Alexander Halevy, who tied the program record for goals scored in a season Tuesday, did not score in the contest.
In the last three seasons, Garces’ overall record is now 65-6-4.
