San Marcos Goes 0-1-1 at Buena Soccer Tournament

Owen Bates scored both goals for San Marcos in a tie and a loss at the Buena Soccer Tournament on Wednesday.

The Royals started the day with a 4-1 loss against Oxnard and played Thousand Oaks to a 1-1 draw in the second match.

"In the game against Oxnard, we lost focus midway through the second half," San Marcos coach Daniel Torres said. "We gave up two goals in a span of two minutes after we had worked hard to tie it. We gave up at least two goals that were avoidable and you can't do that and expect to win."

Against Thousand Oaks, the Lancers tied the score on a penalty kick with three minutes left in the game.

"As cliché as it sounds, we have to play from beginning to end, otherwise teams will make us pay. We can't have the mental breakdowns we had today," said Torres.

The Royals play Santa Barbara in the fifth-place semifinals 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!
