Santa Barbara Falls at Cathedral Catholic in Soccer Regional Semifinals

Santa Barbara High's boys soccer team experienced one of those days where it struggled to finish its chances and suffered a 2-1 loss to top-seeded San Diego Cathedral Catholic in the semifinals of the CIF State Division 1 Regionals on Thursday.

Santa Barbara outshot Cathedral Catholic, 10-4, but came up with only one goal.

"Unfortunately, we picked the wrong day to not be at our best in front of their goal," said Dons coach Todd Heil.

Cathedral Catholic led 1-0 at halftime and added second goal before Brandon Sanchez found the back of the net for Santa Barbara in the 65th minute.

"We pressed but we just couldn't get the equalizer," said Heil.

Santa Barbara finished the year at 23-7-3 and had an incredible postseason in CIF Division 1, going 5-2.

Cathedral Catholic (17-6-2) will play No. 2 seed Loyola for the regional championship on Saturday.

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!
