A list of the local sports action this weekend.
High School Girls’ Volleyball, 4 p.m.
While Lakewood enjoys a bye, Moore League leaders Poly are hosting Millikan today in the final matches of the first round of league play. In other action, Jordan is hosting Compton while Wilson travels to Cabrillo.
High School Girls’ Golf, 2:30 p.m.
Today is the fourth week of Moore League action this season, and there’s only two more weeks until the individual finals Oct. 16-19. Poly and Lakewood face off at Recreation Park 18 Golf Course this afternoon.
High School Girls’ Tennis, 1:30 p.m.
This is the halfway mark of the season, and the last week of the first round of Moore League play. Poly is hosting Compton and Wilson is traveling to Jordan while Cabrillo visits Lakewood and Millikan hosts CAMS.
High School Football, 7 p.m.
The oldest rivalry in Long Beach highlights the games this week as Long Beach Poly and Wilson play at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Moore League action. The two schools first played in 1932. The Bruins were awarded the league title two years ago after Poly was forced to forfeit games, but the Jackrabbits got some revenge with a 32-7 win last season. This is supposed to be a Wilson home game, but because of the construction on campus, the game will be played at Wilson the following two years.
In other league action, Millikan is at Lakewood while Jordan hosts Compton. Millikan hasn’t beaten Lakewood since 2001. Elsewhere, St. Anthony is hosting Valley Christian at Clark Field. Both teams won CIF-SS titles last season, and have played a handful of local teams in the nonleague season.
Long Beach State Women’s Volleyball vs. Cal Poly, 7 p.m.
The 49ers (4-11,1-1) continue Big West Conference play at home this weekend. Cal Poly (13-2, 3-0) is atop the conference standings after an eight-game winning streak. Seven of those wins came via sweep. Mustangs middle blocker Savannah Nieman leads the Big West with a .422 hitting percentage, and setter Taylor Nelson has a conference-leading 12.23 assists per set.
Long Beach State Men’s Water Polo vs. Pacific, 7 p.m.
After four difficult nonconference tournaments on the road, LBSU (9-5) returns to Ken Lindgren Aquatics Center tonight for its first home game of the season. The 49ers have already lost to Pacific twice this season, including last weekend at the Mountain Pacific Invitational. LBSU leads the all-time series 48-30, but Pacific has won the last six meetings. The 49ers were eliminated from the 2016 Golden Coast Conference tournament by Pacific.
Long Beach State Women’s Volleyball vs. UC Santa Barbara, 7 p.m.
This is a much more winnable game than Friday night because UC Santa Barbara (3-11, 2-0) is the only Big West team with a worse overall record than LBSU. The Gauchos are led by outside hitter Lindsey Ruddins and junior Emilia Petrachi. Ruddins leads the conference with 5.63 kills per set. Petrachi is second in the Big West with 256 digs. LBSU’s Hailey Harward is third on the conference with 222 digs.
Long Beach City College Football at Golden West College, 1 p.m.
The Vikings (2-2) have had a disappointing start to their season considering their own expectations for the year. Golden West (2-2) has lost its last two games against LBCC, and last beat the Vikings in 2011.
Long Beach State Women’s Soccer vs. Hawaii, 6 p.m.
The 49ers (6-3-1) begin Big West Conference action this weekend at George Allen Field. LBSU is 19-7-3 at home over the last three seasons, and hasn’t lost to Hawaii since 2004. The 49ers lead the all-time series 6-2-3, and two of the last four meetings were double overtime draws. Hawaii (5-4-0) is on a three-game winning streak with an impressive 1-0 overtime win at Arizona State two weeks ago.
