I looked at plenty of […]

The final week of the regular season in softball has arrived with plenty of league races to settle, but a bit more will be at stake for Sonora on Tuesday. The Raiders (19-3, 7-1) play host to La Habra (11-6-2, 8-0) in a Freeway League showdown at 3:15 p.m. Sonora will be seeking to create a tie atop of the league standings and stay in contention for its first league crown since 2004. The Raiders also are hosting their senior day before playing their biggest rival in the Freeway League. “There’s a lot going on,” Sonora coach Michelle Rodriguez said Monday. “It’s exciting. It’s why we do this.” Rodriguez said the Raiders have received key contributions from three seniors and a junior. The trio of seniors consists of pitcher Haylee Enriquez, catcher Mackenzie Shaw and right fielder/pitcher Ariana Ramirez. Junior Maddie McNally, the reigning Freeway League MVP, anchors the infield at shortstop. Defending league champion La Habra is coming off a 2-1 win against third-place Troy (4-4 in league) on Thursday. Senior Samantha Franck hit a two-run home run and freshman pitcher Marissa Rodriguez allowed just two hits for the Highlanders. “Good teams find ways to win close games,” La Habra coach Kevin Helms said. La Habra and Sonora will both be in Division 2 for the CIF-SS playoffs. The pairings will be announced Monday, April 29 at 10 a.m. STREAKING DOLPHINS Dana Hills, another Division 2 team, beat San Juan Hills 7-2 on Monday for its 13th victory in its past 14 games and the outright South Coast League title. “This team amazes us every week,” Dana Hills coach Brandon Cosenza said Friday night after a 6-1 victory against Aliso Niguel. “The energy and the enthusiasm. The way they go up there and swing the bats. “Never been more proud of a group because we have one girl moving on to play (in college).” Cosenza said his team started rolling during the Northwood tournament. The Dolphins’ hot streak includes a 1-0 victory against Mater Dei. UNITED FOR A CAUSE Villa Park’s players wore light blue ribbons in their hair Thursday when they hosted rival Canyon and coach Jess Carbajal, who is undergoing treatment for prostate cancer. “Villa Park wore it for me,” said Carbajal, whose own players also continue to wear the blue bows in their hair. “That was nice.” Villa Park assistant coach Tom Gordon is a prostate cancer survivor. “It was a pretty cool game,” Gordon said. “(Carbajal) was pretty stoked when I told him that we put on the blue as well. … Everyone is touched by cancer.” SURF LEAGUE WATCH If Marina (5-3 in league), Los Alamitos (4-4) and Huntington Beach (4-4) finish in a three-way tie for first place in the Surf League on Tuesday, the teams’ head-to-head records against each other in league will serve as the tiebreaker for the league’s two automatic playoff berths, Edison athletic director Rich Boyce said Monday. So if Los Alamitos beats Marina, the Griffins would have a 2-1 record against the Vikings and Oilers and will claim the first automatic entry. If Huntington Beach beats Edison, the Oilers would claim the No. 2 automatic entry because they have a 2-1 record against Marina. In this scenario, the Vikings and Edison (3-5) would need at-large entries for the Division 2 playoffs.

It’s a potentially decisive week ahead in the Premier League (Picture: Getty / PA) Liverpool and Manchester City continue to trade blows at the top of the Premier League and it is City who are again in action first this weekend when they entertain Spurs for the second time in less than 72 hours at the Etihad in Saturday’s early kick off. Once again Brand Ambassador Michael Owen shared his thoughts exclusively with BetVictor on all the weekend action. Manchester City v Tottenham Fernando Llorente’s controversial goal knocked Man City out of the Champions League (Picture: Getty) No quadruple for Manchester City this season after Spurs won an epic Champions League quarter-final on away goals at the Etihad midweek. City may count themselves unlucky, but they must dust themselves down and prepare for two tumultuous PL games over the next week given they travel to Old Trafford midweek for the rearranged Manchester Derby. City have won their last three PL games against Spurs and, let’s not forget, they did win the second leg tie on Wednesday. Spurs have much to play for themselves as they chase a top four finish – they cannot afford to just concentrate on the Champions League although they will be favourites against Ajax in the semi-final. Spurs will always be a threat on the break, but I feel City will take all three points and set up what promises to be an Old Trafford show down on Wednesday. Michael’s prediction: 2-1 Bournemouth v Fulham Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson tore Brighton apart last week (Picture: Getty) Bournemouth haven’t won in their last four home league games, but I think they will buck that trend against Fulham even though the Cottagers picked up a rare win and clean sheet against Everton at Craven Cottage last weekend. Bournemouth put five past Brighton at the Amex Stadium at the weekend and there are, almost invariably, goals in Bournemouth games with 110 scored so far in their 34 previous PL games so far this season. The Cherries to win a game with chances at both ends. Michael’s prediction: 2-1 [metro-zone-post-strip] Huddersfield v Watford Watford will be without the suspended Troy Deeney this weekend after his red card against Arsenal (Picture: Getty) Watford have lost three of their last four in the league, but they have reached the final of the FA Cup during this period and I think will return to winning ways against relegated Huddersfield at the John Smith’s Stadium. The Hornets were forced to play Arsenal with 10-men for much of the game at Vicarage Road on Monday and will have to do without suspended Troy Deeney, but Javi Gracia’s side have a number of squad players looking to get a minimum of a place on the bench at Wembley next month. I expect Watford to inflict a record 14th home league loss of the season on the Terriers. Michael’s recommendation: 0-1 West Ham v Leicester City West Ham put behind a couple of poor displays last weekend when they were unfortunate not to come away from Old Trafford with at least a point. A point is all I can see them getting against Leicester back at the London Stadium, however, with the Foxes looking for a third successive away league win for the first time in three years. I expect to see an open, entertaining clash with honours even. Michael’s recommendation: 2-2 Wolves v Brighton Brighton begin the weekend just two points above the relegation places having lost vital home games to Bournemouth and Cardiff this week without finding the back of the visitor’s net. These are worrying times for the Seagulls and I don’t expect them to get anything at Molineux with the hosts playing their first game back on home soil since they surrendered a two-goal lead in the FA Cup semi-final to Watford earlier in the month. Michael’s prediction: 2-0 Newcastle United v Southampton Southampton have won four of their last six PL games but will probably think they need one more win before they can consider themselves safe from the drop. Eight wins from 18 games shows what a good job Ralph Hasenhuttl has done since he took charge at St Mary’s. United picked up a very good three points at the King Power Stadium last Friday and they have won five of their last six home games at St James’ Park. I feel they may have to settle for a point against this progressive Saints’ side. Michael’s prediction: 1-1 Everton v Manchester United Romelu Lukaku returns to Everton on Sunday with Manchester United (Picture: Getty) United had their moments early on at the Nou Camp midweek, but they were, ultimately, well beaten by Barcelona and they need to bounce back at Everton on Sunday if they are to maintain their challenge for a top four spot. Everton will miss Andre Gomez after his retrospective red card against Fulham at the weekend when the Blues did not play with the energy or pace they had done in their good recent run. It is never easy at Goodison, but I feel United will take all three points and keep the pressure on the London clubs who are challenging for the Champions League places. Romelu Lukaku was left out at the Nou Camp midweek, but I feel he will be restored to the starting XI against his old club. He has much to play for. Michael’s prediction: 1-2 Arsenal v Crystal Palace Mesut Ozil will be asked to fill the void left by the injury suffered by Aaron Ramsey (Picture: Getty) Arsenal face a very difficult trip to Naples on Thursday, but I feel they will pick up maximum points against Palace and gain an 11th successive home league win on Sunday – a record for the club in top-flight football. Palace have picked up more points on the road (23 of 39) than they have at Selhurst Park so far this term and although they do have pace and power on the break, I feel the Gunners will continue their excellent recent home league run. Michael’s recommendation: 2-1 Cardiff City v Liverpool Sadio Mane has been in sensational goalscoring form for Liverpool (Picture: Getty) Cardiff gave themselves a chance of avoiding the drop when they won at Brighton midweek and the Bluebirds start the weekend just three points from safety. Had the Bluebirds lost at the Amex on Tuesday one would expect an air of resignation at the Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday, but there is likely to be a renewed optimism on the terraces following that win at the Amex. The Reds have the class and belief to cope with anything Cardiff can throw at them, however, and I expect Jurgen Klopp’s side to run out comfortable winners. Michael’s prediction: 0-3 Chelsea v Burnley Eden Hazard will be the key to Chelsea’s hopes of keeping their top four bid alive (Picture: Getty) Chelsea have lost just one of their last 20 home league games, but the Clarets have won their last three and I feel they will give the Blues plenty to think about at Stamford Bridge on Monday. Chelsea were in Europa League action on Thursday and they have two strings to their Champions League bow given they held a lead from the 1st leg in Prague. Burnley won the corresponding fixture last season, but I expect to see an Eden Hazard inspired Chelsea keep the points. Michael’s recommendation: 3-1 Michael’s weekend treble: Wolves, Bournemouth and Chelsea at 3/1 [metro-tag-post-strip]
