Four different players scored goals for the Bishop Diego boys soccer team in a 4-0 season-opening win against Orcutt Academy.
The match marked the Bishop Diego coaching debut of Emmanuel Verduzco, a 2006 graduate of the school.
“It is surreal to be coaching on the same field where I made so many memories playing soccer for Bishop,” said Verduzco. “Most of these boys were born the same year I graduated high school, so this is a special group for me.”
Coach Verduzco is also the owner and Co-Founder of Ageless Fitness, a specialized fitness studio for seniors.
Sophomores Dawson Pennestri, Dallas Van Wingerden, Thomas Gaggs and senior Oswaldo Perez were the goal scorers for the Cardinals.
