The Royals finish with an undefeated season in Channel League, going 8-0 on the year. They are 13-2 overall and expect to be selected for the Division 1 playoff bracket next week, said coach Rick Lehman. It would be their first appearance in the Division 1 playoffs.

San Marcos' ball movement won out on Thursday night, as senior captain Justin Lehman picked up multiple assists to go with his four goals. He dazzled the crowd with a fancy between-the-legs finish.

His all-around play earned him the game ball from the coaches at the end of the match. 

San Marcos now awaits its seeding for the CIF tournament. The playoffs begin 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!
