Nico Mackie leads Dos Pueblos in 3-0 Shutout of Buena in League Opener

Nico Mackie notched seven saves and turned in a strong performance at goalkeeper in Dos Pueblos' 3-0 boys soccer victory over Buena in the Chargers' Channel League opener on Friday at home.

Oscar Ferreira won a 50-50 ball with Buena's keeper and stayed composed enough to find the net to open the scoring for the Chargers. Later in the first half, Jorge Gomez sent a corner to the face of the goal and defender Mark Sotelo got a clean header on it to give Dos Pueblos a 2-0 halftime lead. 

The Chargers (5-4-2, 1-0-0) rounded out the day's scoring in the second half when Nate Lang sent a ball through to Matt Carlson who put it in the net.

Head coach Matt York praised the play of Mackie after the game, saying, "His performance had a bit of everything: absorbing hard contact, playing smart balls out of the back, skying to grab loose balls in the air, and quick saves to preserve the shutout."

Dos Pueblos takes on rival San Marcos away on Tuesday.

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!
