San Marcos and Dos Pueblos went at each other before settling for a 1-1 draw in a Channel League boys soccer rivalry match on Tuesday at Warkentin Stadium.

“An extremely fun game by two great teams,” said DP coach Matt York.

“From a fan’s perspective, it was a pretty entertaining game,” San Marcos coach Daniel Torres said. “We both had good looks throughout the game and could only find the back of the net once.”

San Marcos took a 1-0 lead late in the first half when Erick Hermenegildo jumped on an errant ball in the Dos Pueblos 18-yard box and scored.

Dos Pueblos answered in first-half stoppage time. Nate Lang received a nice ball from the goalkeeper and fed a through ball to captain Oscar Ferreira for the finish.

Ferreira was tough to handle. He had two goals called back and was unlucky to score on a well-struck free kick. He curled the ball over the San Marcos wall and it hit the right post. The ball ricocheted across the goalmouth and struck the left post before being cleared.

Both teams created good chances in the late going of the game.

“It could have gone either way,” Torres said. “We have some things to fix before our next game, but we also have some things we can build on. We're still taking it one game at a time and I'm looking forward to seeing how we respond.”

York said he can’t wait for the rematch.

“We cannot wait to play these guys again as it is always fun to compete against a rival,” he said.

Dos Pueblos is  5-4-3 and 1-0-1 in league. San Marcos is 6-5-2 and 0-0-1 in league play.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
