THURSDAY

Moore League Girls’ Golf, 1 p.m.

For the first time in four years, the Moore League girls’ golf individual won’t be won by Ali Morallos. Wilson’s three-time champion has graduated, and that leaves the door wide open for a new champion. Wilson senior Riley Henry finished second last year, and has been the medalist winner more often than not for the Bruins this season.

This is a 36-hole tournament with the final 18 being played today at Recreation Park Golf Course. The first round was nine holes at Skylinks Golf Course on Monday. The second round was also nine holes at El Dorado Golf Course on Tuesday.

FRIDAY

High School Football, 7 p.m.

The CIF Southern Section playoffs don’t start until November, but the Moore League playoff hunt has its first elimination game tonight when Compton travels to Lakewood.

SUNDAY

Long Beach State Women’s Soccer vs. UC Riverside, 6 p.m.

This is as close to a must-win game as LBSU (7-6-2, 1-3-1) could have with two weeks left in the season. The 49ers are on a three-game losing streak, and are on the outside looking in at the Big West Conference tournament. UC Riverside (6-9-2, 3-2-0) has turned to goalkeeper Annie Bailey during conference play. She has only allowed four goals in five Big West starts.

Long Beach State Men’s Water Polo vs. California, Noon

LBSU has only won eight of the 87 meetings with No. 3 Cal (15-1) and the Bears beat the 49ers in the first tournament of the season, 14-7.
