The Monte Vista Christian Mustangs inched closer to the Pacific Coast Athletic League Cypress division crown with a 3-0 win in Soledad on Wednesday night.
Emily Edgerle scored two goals and Caroline Sullivan added the third goal for M.V.C. (10-2-4, 8-0-2), which can clinch its first league crown since the 2014-15 season with a win against Monterey tonight at home and a tie between Seaside and Pajaro Valley.
First touch at M.V.C. is scheduled for 5:45 p.m.
Seaside and Pajaro Valley are schedule to start at the same time.
In other girls’ soccer action from Jan. 24-30:
• St. Francis 1, Pacific Grove 0 - St. Francis stayed alive in the PCAL-Cypress title hunt with a win over Pacific Grove on Wednesday evening in Watsonville.
Makenna Bedolla scored the game’s lone goal to improve the Sharks to 6-3-1 overall and 5-3 in league play.
In order for the Sharks to win the league title, they would need to win out and get some help from the rest of the league over the last two weeks of the season. They do, however, control their own destiny in the quest for a runner-up finish in the league, which comes with a play-in game against the champion of the PCAL-Santa Lucia for a spot in the upcoming Central Coast Section playoffs.
St. Francis hosts Soledad today at 3:30 p.m.
