BOYS SOCCER: Bulldogs Fall at Canyon Crest, 4-2

SAN DIEGO — The Calexico High School boys soccer team has begun its toughest stretch of the season as the Bulldogs went to Canyon Crest Academy, falling 4-2 to the Ravens in a battle of CIF-San Diego Section Division I teams.

The rest of the difficult five-game stretch includes matchups against Open Division teams St. Augustine and Del Norte, plus matchups against Division I Rancho Bernardo and Point Loma.
