Santa Barbara takes down Dos Pueblos, Paso Robles; Wins Cats and Hounds Tourney

The Santa Barbara boys soccer team defeated local rival Dos Pueblos 3-2 on Saturday in a non-league matchup as part of the Cats and Hounds Tournament in Atascadero.

The Dons came out of the gates hot, scoring three first half goals. Owen Lambe scored twice and Harrison Foy added a goal himself. 

Mathias Erikson scored his first career varisty goal to get the Chargers on the board early in the second half. 

Near the end of the match, Oscar Ferreira scored his second goal of the young season to bring Dos Pueblos within one, but the Chargers were unable to score again. 

Dos Pueblos head coach Matt York praised the play of Wyatt Babineau in center midfield, claiming that it was largely responsible for the turnaround after halftime.

Santa Barbara defeated Paso Robles in the championship match 5-4 on penalty kicks after regulation ended 0-0. Dos Pueblos took down Coast Union 4-1 in the consolation match. 

"Proud of the boys for a nice first week of the season," explained Santa Barbara head coach Todd Heil. "The key for us now is to not get complacent, stay humble and continue to work each day at getting better together as a team."

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!
