Prep Roundup: Tigers show ‘passion’ in beating Eagles

The San Luis Obispo High girls soccer team found some redemption Friday afternoon.

In December, the Tigers fell to Arroyo Grande on penalty kicks after a scoreless regulation tie in the Premier Division championship game at the prestigious Garces tournament in Bakersfield. Friday, they defeated the Eagles 4-0 in PAC 7 league play.

“My girls had amazing passion (Friday),” San Luis Obispo coach John Clarke said. “Nothing was going to stop them from winning.”

Brady Candaele got San Luis Obispo (14-0-2, 3-0) on the board in the 37th minute by converting a pass by Alessa Moscoso. Moscoso then assisted Kiele Argente to make matters 2-0 in the 43rd minute.

Moscoso pushed the lead to 3-0 in the 74th on an assist by Lindsay Remmenga before Shannon Fontes posted the final tally five minutes later thanks to an Elizabeth Schmidt feed.

Lauren Harper made seven saves for San Luis Obispo. Cheyenne Rodriguez had one save for Arroyo Grande (12-3, 2-1), which opened the season ranked No. 9 in Division III of the CIF-Southern Section.

“They definitely had something to prove,” Eagles assistant coach Johnnie Reinhardt said. “They’re a good team. They bumped us off the ball, and they’re very fast.”

Clarke said his current squad bears a resemblance to the 2007-08 edition led by Cal Poly signee Afton Thulin that won a school-record 27 games.

“I see a lot of similarities with this team,” Clarke said. “We’re extremely upperclassmen-heavy. These girls have the same drive, the same will and the same passion as that team. But we’re not getting ahead of ourselves; we’ve got a lot more good league teams coming up.”
