No. 24 Canyon del Oro beat No. 14 Youngker 3-2 Friday, moving the Dorados into third place in Division I, Section V play behind Ironwood Ridge (8-1) and Salpointe (8-0). The match made the Dorados playoff eligible but the victory for Canyon del Oro (4-7) may not be enough to qualify for one of the six at-large berths available for Division I while Youngker (6-3) still needs to play two more matches to meet the 11-match minimum required for postseason play.
