Senior Casey Meuser made sure his Del Oro High soccer team held onto its third place spot in the Sierra Foothill League Tuesday night in Loomis. The Golden Eagles’ star senior cracked a left-footed shot into the net with just eight minutes remaining to lift Del Oro over Woodcreek 2-1. Meuser’s first goal of the game tied it at 1-1 midway through the second half. The Eagles (5-3-1 SFL) got a couple of key saves from Alec Obert to hold of f the Timberwolves and Colton Riesse turned in an excellent defensive performance according to coach Dave Shiro. Seth Ahlquist’s corner kick set up Meuser’s first goal of the game. Del Oro will face Nevada Union Thursday in Grass Valley before showdowns with Rocklin and Roseville to close out SFL play next week. The top three teams in the league will make the section playoffs.
