The Aliso Varsity Boys Soccer team saw their season come to an end in the CIF Quarterfinals on Friday night in a 4-1 loss at Huntington Beach High School. In a game that was dominated through the first 25 minutes by Aliso, it was Huntington Beach that tallied the first goal. Just seven minutes later, the Oilers converted a penalty kick to go up 2-0 and extended their lead to 3-0 at the 37th minute.
The Wolverines came out strong in the second half and the team's two leading scorers hooked up for a goal. Senior Zach Daniels crossed a ball over to senior Sawyer Sachen and Sachen found the back of the net to get Aliso back into the game.
However, Aliso was unable to get any other shots on the Huntington Beach goalkeeper and the Oilers scored an insurance goal with 11 minutes left.
The Wolverines end their 2021-22 campaign with a 14-1-3 record and it marked the final high school game for the 16 seniors.
Sachen ended the season with 19 points on 9 goals and one assist. Daniels finished second wth 18 points on 7 goals and 4 assists.
It took 68 minutes, but Aliso's Varsity Boys Soccer team finally broke through as senior Misha Feoktistov scored to lead the Wolverines to a 2-0 victory on the road at San Marcos High Santa Barbara on Tuesday night. Feoktistov gathered a ball that was deflected off a Royal player and with the visiting goalkeeper out of position, shot into an open net to give Aliso a 1-0 lead with just over 12 minutes remaining in the game. It was Feoktistov's fifth goal of the season.
In a back and forth affair, Aliso couldn't quite get any shots on the San Marcos goalkeeper. San Marcos struggled to get any attempts on Wolverine goalkeeper Steele Arlasky as the Aliso back line of Josh Fisher, Jackson Harris, Ryan Mann and Curtis LeQuang didn't allow any solid shots.
After Feoktistov's goal, San Marcos pressured Aliso over the next ten minutes. However, senior Sawyer Sachen sealed the win, scoring his team leading eighth goal of the year on a breakaway after a counter attack.
Aliso advances to the CIF Division I Quarterfinals to face Huntington Beach High School this Friday at Huntington Beach. Game time to be determined.
Zach Daniels scored one minute into the second half and Mitchell Cosper added an insurance goal to lead Aliso Boys Soccer to a 2-0 win over Mater Dei High School tonight at Wolverine Stadium.
Aliso and Mater Dei battled in a physical game that didn't see too many scoring opportunities in the first half but did see four players cautioned.
The Wolverines struck early after the break as a pair of kindergarten friends put Aliso on the board. Senior Curtis LeQuang sent a ball that found Daniels' head who directed it into the net for the 1-0 Aliso lead.
Goalkeeper Steele Arlasky came up with some big saves in the second half to keep Mater Dei off the scoreboard. A pair of point blank saves by Arlasky came at the 19-minute mark that stopped some Mater Dei second half momentum.
With eight minutes remaining, senior Sawyer Sachen had a mini breakaway and found the junior Cosper to the left of the net and Cosper coverted the pass to double the Aliso lead.
Aliso will play at San Marcos High School of Santa Barbara on Tuesday, February 15 in the second round. Game time is yet to be determined.
