Find out where your favorite Long Beach team is playing this weekend.


High School Girls’ Soccer, 6:30 p.m.

Wilson is just two wins away from clinching the Moore League title, and the toughest game left on the schedule is tonight at home against rival Long Beach Poly. The Bruins held on for an exciting 3-2 win on the road earlier this month, so the Jackrabbits want some revenge to spoil the coronation. In other league action, Millikan is hosting Lakewood while Jordan travels to Compton.

St. Anthony will try to stay undefeated in Camino Real League play when it hosts St. Monica at 3:15 this afternoon at Clark Field. The Saints only have three games left on the regular season schedule.

Long Beach State Men’s Basketball at UC Riverside, 7 p.m.

Both LBSU and UC Riverside come into this week with three Big West losses. However, UCR is tied for third in the standings and LBSU is tied for eighth. That’s how close the Big West is this year. The Highlanders don’t have a player in the conference in top five for the major statistical categories.

Long Beach State Women’s Basketball vs. UC Riverside, 7 p.m.

This is the last full Friday of Moore League basketball as league leaders Long Beach Poly travel to Lakewood. In other action, Millikan is hosting Wilson while Cabrillo visits Compton. Both girls’ and boys’ games between Millikan and Wilson should be exciting as the Bruins look for upsets.

Long Beach State Men’s Basketball vs. UC Santa Barbara, 4 p.m.

The Beach is back at Walter Pyramid for an important Big West game against UC Santa Barbara. LBSU upset the Gauchos at home earlier this month, and have relied on its defense to maintain that momentum. JaQuori McLaughlin leads UCSB with 14.8 points per game, and that ranks third in the conference.
