  • Freshman forward Ramiro Barraza scored both goals Tuesday in Taft College’s 2-1 state soccer playoff victory over Lassen Community College.
    The Cougars will host Cabrillo College Saturday in the semi-finals.  The winner gets a trip to the final four on Nov. 30-Dec. 2.
    Lassen midfielder Krishan Patel drilled a crossing pass into the left corner of the goal in the eighth minute to give the team from Susanville an early lead.
    Barraza took a pass from Andy Reyes in the 43rd minute to tie it and scored the game-winner minutes later on a header off a corner kick.
    TC (16-0-5) advances to the semi-finals against No. 13 Cabrillo, which upset No. 5 Fresno 2-1 after knocking off No. 4 Santa Rosa in last Saturday’s opening round.
    The game ended in a brawl when a Lassen player jumped a Taft player.  
    Players from both teams scuffled for several minutes before calm was restored.
    Referees will issue a report that could produce red cards.  The penalties won’t matter for Lassen, which ended its season 10-6-4, but it could affect TC.
