MV girls soccer team can wrap up league title with win today

If the Mountain View High girls soccer team claims the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League De Anza Division title, the Spartans may want to send a thank-you note to Homestead.

The fourth-place Mustangs helped them out by stunning host Palo Alto 1-0 Feb. 7. That result, coupled with Mountain View’s 5-0 rout of Saratoga Friday, enabled the Spartans to move ahead of the Vikings in the race for first place.
