Spartans get assist in title run

The De La Salle High soccer team wrapped up another East Bay Athletic League title, but this time needed an assist from San Ramon Valley. The Spartans topped California 3-0 in their league finale on Feb. 13, but needed San Ramon Valley to beat Monte Vista in order to claim the title. The Wolves obliged with a 3-1 win over the Mustangs. Nick Mitchell had a goal and two assists in De La Salle's win. Stephen Dougherty, pictured left in a Jan. 30 game against Amador Valley, scored 37th minute for the Spartans' first goal. De La Salle earned the No. 1 seed in the North Coast Section Division I playoffs and hosted No. 16 Freedom in a first round game on Feb. 19. Results weren't available at press time.
