Strathmore at Hilmar, 6 p.m., in Div. 6-AA state final

Revenge and rematch — those are the main words highlighting Saturday’s second meeting in as many years between the Hilmar and Strathmore High School football teams.

That’s because the last year when the two met, the Spartans “stole” a win from the Yellowjackets in a 53-52 double-overtime victory in the play-in game for the CIF State Division 6-AA playoffs. 

With their fifth-straight win and a 4-0 record in the East Sequoia League, Granite Hills High School boys soccer is emerging as one of the top team’s in the ESL and the CIF Central Section Division VI. The Grizzlies are the No. 1 team in Div. VI with 10-1 overall record.

On Thursday, Granite Hills remained perfect in the ESL with a 6-1 win over Sierra Pacific.

Salud Magaña scored a hat trick with three goals, Ivan Ayon had two goals and Erick Rincon had one.

The team’s only loss this season was a 1-0 fall to Div. I’s Central (8-1-1) at a tournament last week.
