Diamond Bar Takes Down Whittier To Advance

Brahmas celebrate first playoff win in 15 years!

(Diamond Bar) The Diamond Bar Brahmas get goals by Will Lee and Ryan Espinoza to erase a 1-0 deficit and beat the visiting Whittier Cardinals 2-1 in the first round of the CIF Divison 4 Boys Soccer playoffs.

The teams struggled to a first half tie and the Cardinals broke the deadlock when they were able to drill home a  penalty kick.  The penalty  was awarded on a hand ball by the Brahmas.

Diamond Bar tied the game a few minutes later when Lee was able to nail a shot past the Whittier goaltender.

Later in the game a scramble ensued in the front of the Cardinal goal.  In the heat of the battle for the loose ball, Espinoza got a boot on it to send it to the back of the net for the game winner.

Diamond Bar will be on the road next Tuesday headed for Crecsenta Valley and round two.
