The San Luis Obispo High boys soccer team ended Righetti’s 22-game PAC 7 winning streak last week but ran into a wall in Atascadero’s Alex Aguiar on Wednesday night that prevented the Tigers (7-4-1 PAC 7) from moving a step closer toward a CIF-Southern Section divisional playoff berth.
The UC Davis-bound Aguiar scored his 19th and 20th goals of the year and dished out an assist in a 3-3 tie in San Luis Obispo.
“Alex Aguiar single-handedly saved the game for them,” Tigers coach Johnny Costa said. Aguiar assisted Joe Camarillo to tie the game at 1 for Atascadero (8-11-6, 2-7-2 PAC 7).
Aguiar gave the Greyhounds a 3-2 lead before Alex Frost tied the game for San Luis Obispo.
