WRITTEN BY :   Mark Fetter, Contributor

DOWNEY – The Downey High School boys’ soccer team currently has an overall record of 10-6-5 and a league record of 2-4-3.
Downey lost to cross-town rival Warren at Warren 3-0 on Jan. 25 but rebounded by defeating Gahr 2-1 on Jan. 29. They then lost to defending C.I.F. Division III champion Paramount at Downey 2-1 on Feb. 1.
The Vikings lost to Dominguez at Dominguez 4-1 on Monday. Downey wrapped up league play on Wednesday at Downey against Lynwood (score unavailable at press time).
Downey is currently in fifth place (2-4-3) in the San Gabriel Valley League standings. Paramount is in first place at 7-0-1, Lynwood is in second place at 5-3-1, Dominguez is in third place at 4-2-4, Warren is in fourth place at 3-2-3, and Gahr is at the bottom of the S.G.V.L. standings at 0-9. The Vikings have struggled a bit of late and have lost three of their last four league games. Downey looked to finish their league season on a strong note by defeating Lynwood.
The Downey High School girls’ soccer team currently has an overall record of 16-3-2 and a league record of 9-0. The Lady Vikings defeated cross-town rival Warren at Downey 4-1 on January 25th, defeated Gahr at Downey 2-0 on Jan. 29, defeated Paramount at Paramount 1-0 on Feb. 1 and defeated Dominguez at Downey 6-0 on Monday. The Lady Vikings finished their last league game Wednesday against Lynwood at Downey but the final score was unavailable at press time.

Warren is in second place at 5-3, followed by Lynwood in third place, Paramount in fourth place, Dominguez in fifth place and Gahr is at the bottom of the league standings in sixth place. The Lady Vikings are certainly playing well as their league season winds down and the playoffs approach. Coach Godfrey is certainly getting her team ready for another run at a C.I.F. title.
