Bret Harte High School has accepted a girls' soccer
forfeit from Linden, according to Bullfrogs coach Jennifer Truman.
Linden was scheduled to visit Bret Harte at Dorroh Field on Tuesday night, but cancelled after a Linden student was killed in a car crash near the valley school that afternoon. Bret Harte (14-5-5, 10-3-2 Mother Lode League) receives a 1-0 victory in its regular-season finale.
The Bullfrogs are in the Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV playoffs as either the second- or third-place team
from the MLL. Their final finish depends on the outcome of tonight's scheduled makeup game between Linden and MLL champion Summerville.
If Linden wins, the Lions currently one point behind the Bullfrogs will be the second-place team. A Summerville victory or a tie would make Bret Harte the No. 2 team.
The playoffs begin Tuesday, with Bret Harte on the road against either Trans-Valley League champion Hilmar (if No. 2) or Golden Empire League champion Marysville (if No. 3).
