El Camino beats Lincoln on PKs to advance in girls D-III playoffs

El Camino has moved on to the second round of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division III girls soccer playoffs after winning a thriller, 3-1 on penalty kicks, Thursday night in Lincoln.

El Camino tied the match 1-1 late in the second half on a goal by Jaqui Ortega off a crossing pass from Carly Nelson. The match remained tied through two 10-minute overtimes before El Camino prevailed on PKs.

El Camino, the third-place finisher in the Capital Athletic League, will play Solano County Athletic Conference champion Benicia 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

In other Division III matches Thursday, Brianna Valencia's 70th minute goal proved the difference as Yuba City beat Vanden 3-2; Rodriguez defeated Natomas 4-1 and Antelope topped Bear River 5-0.

Antelope will play at Inderkum; Rodriguez at Colfax and Yuba City at Rio Americano in other Tuesday matchups.

Rio Americano is the defending section champion.
