Within the span of three days, the Rio Mesa High boys soccer team has gone from calculating its clincher to crossing its fingers.

“We still have our hopes,” Rio Mesa coach Brandon Fuchs said.

And now Oxnard High and Camarillo High are in front — neck and neck — with two games to play. Who knows who will be where when the music stops and the dust settles next week in what may be Southern California’s top league, top to bottom?

“I’ve said it and I’ll say it again,” said Oxnard coach Eric Montijo, “all six teams in this league can compete.”
