Late Goal Beats Laguna Blanca in CIF Second-Round Match

The California Military Institute scored in the final minute of regulation time and defeated Laguna Blanca, 2-1, in a CIF-Southern Section Division 7 boys soccer playoff match on Wednesday at Laguna.

Laguna Blanca broke a scoreless game in the 50th minute on a goal by Ethan Tyng and generated several more chances to score.

But CMI got the equalizer in the 65th minute on a penalty kick. The teams went back and forth for the final 15 minutes of regulation. CMI put together an attack in the final minute and scored the game winner.

"It's a hard way to end the season, but we can learn from this moving into next season," Laguna co-coach Goff Boyoko said. "Laguna Blanca, although unable to make it back to the CIF final, has a lot to be proud of."

Co-coach Jon Curry expressed his thanks to the team's four seniors, who were a key part of the team's success.

"Our group of boys have come so far this year," he said. "Although losing hurts now, we are excited to be returning a large group of players, continuing to build a culture around hard work, commitment and teamwork at Laguna Blanca.

"We are both excited for next year and thankful to all our parents for a great season."

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!
