Dos Pueblos splits boys soccer games
The Dos Pueblos boys soccer team split away games this week.
The Chargers beat Buena High School 1-0 Wednesday in one of those games.
Dos Pueblos made its goal with five minutes left in the game, Coach Julio Flores told the News-Press in an email.
The victorious play began with Andy Duran assisting on a cross from the left wing side, Flores said.
The ball went to center forward Ronan Hugo, who sent it past the goalie for the win over the Ventura school.
In an away game Thursday, the Chargers tied with Pacifica 1-1.
“Alvaro Contreras starts the game off with a goal,” Flores said. “One minute into the game, Fred Jones gets up on the attack from his right full back position (and) crosses the ball, and Alvaro is there to strike it (into) the upper corner.”
Flores said the Chargers had further scoring opportunities in the second half against the Oxnard school but couldn’t capitalize on them.
“Then with 8 minutes renaming, Pacifica ties the game,” the coach said.
He noted the Chargers’ goalie, Diego Garcia, got two stops.
And in an away game Wednesday, Canoga Park defeated the Dos Pueblos boys soccer team 3-1.
The Chargers’ Fin Silver scored the team’s goal during the second half, Flores said, praising Silver for his efforts playing center.
