Boys’ soccer wins Ocean League championship George Laase And Steve Finley | Mon, Feb 13 2017 11:01 PM

Although the Culver City boys’ soccer team had two more league games to play at press time their 8-0 record as of Tuesday, February 07, 2017 is good enough for the Centaurs to be league champions. Winning the crown with two games to play shows how dominant they were in league play.  They are 17-5 overall. There last league game will be against Beverly Hills tonight (Thursday) at 6 p.m. inside the Jerry Chabola Stadium on the Culver City campus.

This senior heavy team has been impressive from the beginning of the season to the present.  Their defense has been outstanding and they know how to score enough points to win close games.  The Centaurs have scored 49 goals and given up 17 goals.  They are currently riding a 10 game winning streak dating back to December 22, 2016.

“We talk to these kids and we grind them every day,” said Culver City head coach Louie Espeleta after a recent game. “Thirteen out of our 25 varsity players are seniors but our starting lineup consists of several juniors and we have an outstanding freshman in Curtis Collazos.”

Coach Espeleta is looking forward to the CIF Division 4 playoffs next week.  “Because we are the league champs we should get a higher seed in the playoffs and we are hoping to get to at least the third round. If we make it pass the first and second rounds that would be a huge accomplishment. It’s been over 10 years since Culver City has made it pass the second round.”

The girls soccer team, coached by Elizabeth Cveyich is currently 12-6 overall and 7-1 in the Ocean league which is good enough for second place.  Their next league game before the playoffs is at Beverly Hills on Thursday (today) at 3p.m.

The second place girls basketball team, coached by Julian Anderson is 16-7 overall and they are 6-2 in the Ocean League. There final league game is Thursday (tonight) at home against Beverly Hills at 6 p.m.

The third place boys basketball team is currently 10-15 overall and  5-3 in the Ocean League. They are coached by Adam Eskridge and their final league game is Thursday (tonight) at home at 7:30 p.m. The boys’ basketball team is currently in third place but they will have to wait until after the regular season is over before they find out if they qualify for the CIF playoffs.
