Marysville 2, Capital Christian 2
In Marysville — Taking the pitch with a heavy heart, the Indians played the defending Sac-Joaquin Section Division-V champion Cougars to a draw in a Golden Empire League match at Marks Field.
Thomas Mehler tallied a goal and an assist and Alfredo Real scored a goal for Marysville, which played the game in honor of Rogelio Vejar, the 2-month old brother of freshman Nelson Vejar who passed away on Monday.
Freddy Terriquez finished with nine saves in goal for the Indians, who moved to 9-6-1 overall and 3-4-1 in the GEL with the draw.
Natomas 2, Yuba City 1
In Sacramento — The Honkers will be playing for their playoff lives on Monday against their biggest rival.
With the loss to the Nighthawks, Yuba City (4-3-2) is in third place in the Tri-County Conference behind Pioneer and TCC-champion River Valley.
The only way Yuba City can guarantee itself a playoff spot is by beating RV on Monday. If YC loses and Woodland beats Pioneer on Monday, the Honkers are out of the postseason picture. If the Wolves lose, Yuba City is in no matter what.
Erik Uribe scored Yuba City's lone goal on Wednesday.
