Sonoma Splits Spring Break
The Seawolves headed down to San Diego for Spring Break, and the Boys in Blue split the trip 1-1.
After a ten hour bus ride, and some field mishaps, the Seawolves took on the Oregon Ducks at La Jolla Elementary School, which felt like home on its grass field. Sonoma struck first, yet Oregon responded right away, and the game was a shootout with the first whistle. Each team went back and forth, with 5 all at half. Eventually, thanks to some late game heroics by all, and junior goalie Ben Beeman standing tall, Sonoma pulled out the 13-12 win.
On Monday, the sense of competition was still in the air, as the boys went to Pelly’s Putt Putt in Del Mar, and each hotel room, along with coaches, competed for first place bragging rights in the inaugural “Sonoma Spring Break Mini Golf Invitational”. Then, the boys headed out to Solona Beach to relax and enjoy the SoCal weather, Hawaiian shirt and black mustaches all.
Tuesday night saw the continuation of the intense rivalry between the San Diego State Aztecs and Sonoma Seawolves. In front of a Southern California faithful, featuring many alumni from all classes, it was a beautiful sight to see and hear. However, the Aztecs wanted to play spoiler, and they came out swinging early in the first quarter. The Seawovles found themselves down early. Despite a valiant effort, the Seawovles could not seem to get out of the first quarter rut, and the Aztecs came out on top 17-7.
Being 3-6 on the season, the Seawovles hold Cal next week, Apr. 2, to start WCLL North divisional play. These next three games will prove most crucial for the Seawolves, as it will determine seeding for the WCLL playoffs, held at Mt. Eden High School.
Shoutout to all the alumni that came out to support!
