Mtn. View girls fall 1-0 to Mitty in CCS soccer final

Mother Nature didn’t do the Mountain View High girls soccer team any favors Friday.

A case could be made that the rain prior to Friday night’s Central Coast Section Open Division final – and drizzle during the match at Santa Clara University’s Buck Shaw Field – played a role in the Spartans’ 1-0 loss to Mitty.

Of all the coaching decisions Ivan Bandov has made in recent years to help the Mountain View High girls soccer team remain among the best in the state, perhaps none of them trumps moving Lucy Tang to forward this season.

She scored both goals in the Spartans’ 2-0 home win over Presentation Saturday in the Central Coast Section Open Division quarterfinals. That gives Tang a team-high 21 goals for the year.

The Mountain View High girls soccer team’s loss to Palo Alto last month seems to have served as an extreme wake-up call – the kind that comes with a blast from an air horn, a dousing of ice water and a double espresso.

The streaking Spartans were roused and ready for the road rematch, pummeling Paly 5-1 Feb. 14 to claim their fifth straight Santa Clara Valley Athletic League De Anza Division championship.
