Tony Garcia took charge in Tuesday's boys soccer rivalry game with Dos Pueblos, scoring two goals and assisting on another in a 4-0 San Marcos victory in a Channel League game.

Garcia ripped a left-footed rocket into the side netting for a 1-0 lead in the 34th minute. 

Owen Bates made it 2-0 in the 41st minute, finishing a corner kick from Garcia.

Garcia scored his second goal in the 54th minute off an Oscar Perez assist for a 3-0 lead.

Dos Pueblos came close to scoring but its shot went wide.

"We were lucky not to concede a goal on that play and we were able to get the third goal," said San Marcos coach  Daniel Torres.

Aaron Contreras scored on a backheel for the Royals' fourth goal, with Perez getting the assist.

"Overall, I was happy with the performance from the boys in a scrappy game," Torres said. "Sometimes it's OK to get a little dirty to get a win. Our backline was superb."

Bryce Tomlinson posted the shutout in goal.

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!
