Familiar foes Rio Americano, Benicia to meet in D-III soccer final

Rio Americano, ranked No. 8 nationally by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America, will get a rematch with rival Benicia in Saturday's noon Sac-Joaquin Section Division III girls soccer championship match at Cosumnes Oaks High School in Elk Grove.

Both advanced by winning semifinal matches this afternoon.

Led by Alexa Heinzer's two goals, Rio Americano (18-0-0) downed visiting Rodriguez of Fairfield 5-0. Benicia (15-3-2) defeated Whitney 2-0.
