Santa Barbara Boys Soccer Returns to Pitch, Posts 2 Shutouts at South Torrance Tourney

The Santa Barbara High boys soccer team picked up where it left off when it last played, posting a pair of shutouts at the South Torrance Tournament on Thursday.

The Dons had not played or practiced since Dec. 4 because of the Thomas Fire. Before the fire they were 4-0-1.

The inactivity didn't seem to hurt them on Thursday as they blanked Santa Monica 3-0 and Mira Costa 1-0. 

Gavin Guilfoyle, Owen Lambe and Juan Carlos Torres scored for the Dons against Santa Monica, while Jorge Ochoa delivered the game winner against Mira Costa. Goalkeeper Ben Roach posted both shutouts.

"I’m really proud of the effort the boys put forth today given that we haven’t been able to practice and we’re honestly pretty out of shape," Dons coach Todd Heil said. "But they found a way to win two games and get themselves into the quarterfinals, where we’ll play Peninsula at 12:30. 

Santa Barbara improves to 6-0-1.

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!
