The Cloverdale Lady Eagles are on the cusp of a coveted league soccer title this week following a 9-0 romp at Lower Lake on Oct. 15.
The win, coupled with the first loss of the season at Middletown, pushed the Eagle’s league record to 12-1 and 15-1 overall.
Cloverdale jumped all over Lower Lake to grab a 4-0 lead in the opening half, and added five more goals after intermission in cruising to a 9-0 win.
Scoring goals for the Eagles were Amy Mora (2), Perla Anguiano (2), Karsyn Stewart, Bailey Stewart, Bailey Creager, Hannah Faso, and Celia Pulido.  Assists went to Mora, Perla, Viviana Martinez, Creager and Karsyn Stewart.  Creager and Maria Gonzalez split time in goal to post the shutout.
The Eagles suffered their first season loss at arch-rival Middletown on Oct. 17, falling to the Mustangs 3-2.
Cloverdale took a 2-0 lead at the break after goals from Karsyn Stewart and Anguiano, but Middlettown fought back with a pair of goals in the 55th and 57th minutes of the second half, and scored the game-winner a few minutes later to take a 3-2 lead.
Cloverdale had a near miss on a shot to tie the game late in the period, but the Mustangs would hang on for a 3-2 win.
The loss dropped the Eagles into a tie with Middletown at 12-1 with just two games remaining in the regular season.  If the teams finish in a tie, there will be a tie-breaking game played on Oct. 29 to determine who gets the automatic NCS playoff berth.  
Cloverdale will close out the regular season on Oct. 24 against visiting St. Helena in a 4 p.m. start.
