The Santa Barbara High boys soccer team completed it’s unbeaten Channel League quest with a 2-0 win over Dos Pueblos Wednesday on Senior Night.
The Dons (19-1-4, 8-0-2) had already clinched the league title Monday but still wanted to end the season with just one overall blemish and none in league play.
They were able to do that with two second-half scores. First, Will Dunaway scored in the 55th minute followed by a score from Miguel Alvarado six minutes later to take a commanding lead.
In goal, Connor Lambe and Cesar Gregorio combined on the shutout. CIF pairings for boys and girls soccer will be released on Saturday.
