The two hottest teams in H-DNL boys soccer continued to roll on Saturday morning.
Both Del Norte and Eureka posted wins to move ahead of Fortuna in the standings in the tightest championship race the league has seen in several years.
The Warriors won 2-0 at Arcata and knocked the defending champion Tigers out of contention, while the Loggers won 3-1 at South Fork.
The win for the Eureka boys, who are unbeaten in six straight games, leaves them alone atop the standings with 16 points with one game remaining, while Del Norte now has 15 points with two games to play.
The Warriors are the only team of the three contenders to hold their fate in their own hands and if they win their final two games they will be crowned league champions for the first time since 1995 and just the second time ever in program history.
They travel to Eureka on Monday in a game that will have a huge impact in the championship race, before returning home to host McKinleyville in their league finale on Wednesday.
Fortuna, which had a bye in league this weekend, also remains in the chase with games at South Fork on Monday and at home to St. Bernard’s on Wednesday.
Both of Monday’s games kick off at 6 p.m.
If the Loggers beat the Warriors they will be guaranteed at least a share of the league crown which would be the first for the school since 2007.
