(City Section)

South East soccer coach Felipe Bernal might have earned a campus parade after pulling off one of the biggest coaching accomplishments in City Section soccer history.

Earlier in the week, his team knocked off No. 1-seeded El Camino Real. Then on Saturday night at Valley College, South East got an overtime goal from Nico Magaña to defeat No. 2 Birmingham 2-1 to win the Division I championship. Birmingham was the defending champion.

David Diaz scored his 30th goal for Birmingham to tie the score 1-1 after an early South East goal, but South East’s defense remained tight throughout to inflict a rare defeat on the Patriots. Both teams will continue when the regional playoffs begin next week.
