San Marcos finished the regular season with 3-0 boys soccer win over Buena in the final Channel League match between the two schools.

Buena is moving to the Pacific View League next season.

Levi Sheffey took a pass from Rosalio Manzo and blasted a shot past the goalkeeper from inside the 18-yard box to open the scoring the 19th minute.

Tony Garcia picked off a Buena clearing ball and volleyed it from 25 yards for an unassisted goal in the 28th minute.

The third goal featured some nice combination work between Michael Palmer and  Erick Hermenegildo. Palmer dribbled the ball 40 yards down field, fed it to Hermenegildo on the right wing and got a return pass at the top of the 18-yard box. Palmer finished the sequence with a one-time shot past the goalkeeper.

"It was a great combination by the two," said Torres.

The coach praised the defensive work of Kei Faulkner, Saul Sosa, Palmer and Alan Monge on the back line and Cesar Melchor in goal.

The Royals finish at 11-7-2 overall and 5-2-1 in league.

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!
