San Marcos scored off a rebound just before halftime and continued on to its 2-1 boys soccer victory over Dos Pueblos at Warkentin Stadium on Tuesday night.
“The first half seemed like San Marcos had most of the possession and we really struggled to hold the ball and build up any sort of attack,” Chargers coach Matt York said.
The Royals added another goal in the second half before DP finally responded with Seba Dupont’s goal to cut its deficit in half. San Marcos’ goals were not reported by press time.
