Senior captain Fin Silver set up two underclassmen for goals, helping Dos Pueblos gain its first boys soccer win of the season, a 3-0 decision at Rio Mesa in a Channel League match on Thursday.
On both goals, Silver fought for the ball in the box and laid off passes to Miguel Greenberg, a sophomore JV call-up, and freshman Andrew Gomez for the finishes.
On the Chargers’ third goal, Silver kicked a ball that got deflected to Drew Hammers. He blasted a shot from 30 yards that went over the extended hand of the Rio Mesa goalkeeper and tucked under the crossbar.
“Drew had an amazing game, playing in multiple positions on the evening,” said DP coach Matt York of his man of the match. “It really felt like he was everywhere on the field. He was tough defensively and he did a great job distributing the ball offensively.”
York said Ethan Foong “had a stellar performance” on the defensive side, and senior Ryan Orosco “played beautifully for us getting up and down the sideline constantly throughout the game.”
Dos Pueblos is 1-2 overall and 1-1 in league.
