No. 15-ranked San Marcos got the best of the Dos Pueblos boys in a Channel League rivalry lacrosse game on Tuesday, prevailing 10-8,

The Royals led 7-2 at the half after rattling off five unanswered goals in the second quarter.

The Chargers came roaring back early in the second half, pulling to within 7-6 after pumping in four unanswered goals. 

A back-and-forth fourth quarter brought the game down to the wire. Dos Pueblos scored two goals while down 10-6 to narrow the deficit, but the Chargers couldn't close the gap entirely and San Marcos held on for the victory. 

Strong second-half defense by Dos Pueblos goalie and team captain Justin Juarez was the key to the Chargers getting back in the game. Ethan Kahn had two goals and two assists in the effort and John Essig added four goals to lead the offense. 

San Marcos (8-1, 1-0) will play their second Channel League match on Friday against Thacher. 

Dos Pueblos (5-2, 2-1) visit Dunn for a non-league game on Thursday.

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!
