Parker Sports Wrap for the Week of January 30 - February 3

Boys Soccer

Our soccer team is 10-4-3 overall and 4-2-1 in the Coastal League after their two games last week.  On Monday, January 30, the Lancers defeated the San Diego Jewish Academy, 4-1, on Lauer Field.  Santiago Morera scored two goals.  One off an assist from Ryan Watson.  The other Lancer goal was scored by Alex Goskowics off an assist from Luca Marcelli.

On Wednesday, the Lancers hosted new league member Orange Glen.  The Patriots have a talented team and play an exciting brand of soccer.  They scored early in the first half. It looked bleak for the Lancers as they had trouble generating much offense.  Finally in the final ten minutes, Santiago Morera had an amazing goal off of an assist from Liam Crowley, to tie the score.  The Lancers continued to put heavy pressure on the Patriots goalkeeper, but ultimately the game ended in a 1-1 tie.

The Lancers will get a rematch with Orange Glen when they travel to Escondido on Monday, February 6.

Santiago Morera scored three goals in last week’s games.
