The boys soccer team at Jewish Community High School of the Bay is on its way to the championship game in its division for the first time, matching the historic accomplishment of the school’s girls volleyball squad.
Junior forward Ethan Finestone scored three goals last night at San Francisco’s Kezar Stadium as the JCHS Wolves defeated Point Arena High School 5-1. It was the second consecutive game in which Finestone scored a hat trick.
The soccer team, seeded No. 2 among the 25 teams in its division, will travel to top-seeded Anderson Valley Junior Senior High School in Boonville next Tuesday, Nov. 13, for the championship game in division 3 of the California Interscholastic Federation North Coast Section.
Anderson Valley has won five of the past eight NCS division 3 soccer championships.
JCHS reached the semifinal game against third-seeded Point Arena by winning 7-0 last Saturday against No. 7 seed Laytonville High School.
The JCHS girls volleyball team also reached the championship game in its 35-team division for the first time, but lost that match at Calistoga last Saturday night, Nov. 3. Despite the 3-1 loss to Calistoga in the division 6 title game, the Wolves moved on to the state playoffs thanks to reaching the division semifinals.
But the volleyball team’s season ended last night with a 3-0 loss at Forest Lake Christian School of Auburn in the quarterfinals of that tournament.
