Prep sports roundup: Birmingham wins City Section Division I boys' soccer title

One of the most heated rivalries in City Section sports is Birmingham vs. El Camino Real in boys’ soccer, and the two teams met in the City Division I title game Saturday night at L.A. Valley College.

After a scoreless first half, Adrian Diaz of Birmingham scored on a penalty kick, then the Patriots added another goal from Anthony Najafi to come away with a 2-0 victory to repeat as City champions in the first season for head coach Gus Villalobos, a former Birmingham player and longtime assistant coach.

Afterward, there was fighting between players and no handshakes as officials attempted to regain control. It‘s not yet known if any players will be barred from playing in next week’s Southern California Regionals.
