Six different players scored goals as Santa Barbara High's boys soccer team opened its season with an impressive 6-0 win over visiting Moorpark on Tuesday.

"The boys showed a lot of energy in our first match of the season and I thought even with the energy we were able to slow the game down, possess and dictate the game," said Dons coach Todd Heil.

The goals were scored by Heymar Hernandez, Brandon Garcia, Sloan Hanson, Alejandro Munoz Briones, Juan Zarate and Tyler Munoz.

Paulie Santana and Francisco Fonseca combined on the shutout in goal.

Santa Barbara outshot Moorpark 14-1.

"We did a great job tonight of defending as a team and making the game difficult for Moorpark.  I couldn't have asked for a better start to the season," said Heil.

The Dons head to Paso Robles this weekend for the Cats & Hounds Tournament. Their first two matches are against Nipomo and Firebaugh.

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!
