On the opening day of the Inland Valley League season, Rancho Verde matched up with Eagles from Valley View HS.

RVHS had not beaten Valley View since 2010 in boys soccer, and additionally avenged a loss earlier this year to the Eagles, in the championship game of the Hemet Tournament. Goals by Alfredo Moreira and Eduardo Garcia powered this important road win for the Mustangs, and moved them to 13-3 overall and 1-0 in the IVL.
The rest of the RVHS teams did not fare so well against VVHS in the opening round of the IVL. Girls Soccer dropped a tough 4-1 home loss, while both the Boys and Girls Hoops teams lost as well. Boys Basketball was tied with 15 seconds left on the road, but lost 49-44, and Girls Basketball gave a great effort, but were overcome 69-15 by the Eagles.
