Sophomore forward Miguel Fregoso recorded only his third goal of the season in the 53rd minute to give the Arroyo Grande High boys soccer team a 1-0 win over Arroyo in El Monte on Tuesday in a wild-card game of the CIF-Southern Section Division 5 playoffs.
The win granted the Eagles (13-10-4) a first-round meeting Thursday afternoon with Carpinteria (15-6-1), last year’s division finalist that knocked Arroyo Grande out of the playoffs in the second round after winning a 5-4 shootout.
“It was a great team effort, especially after going on the road for three, four hours,” Arroyo Grande coach Brad Bowdey said. “To play on their field and come away with a win, it’s a great tribute to the boys. They’re happy to be in the tournament now.”
