SOCCER ROUNDUP — Loggers, Tigers both win ahead of key matchup

The Eureka boys stretched their unbeaten run to seven straight games with a 2-0 win at McKinleyville on Thursday night.

The Loggers remain well in the hunt for a league championship with a pivotal game at Arcata on Tuesday.

Eureka scored twice in the opening half to take control of the game, and that would prove to be enough.

Trenton Gerber scored the opening goal off an assist from Tomas Paoli, with Donovan Millender making it 2-0 when he netted on a cross from Ean Savage.
