GSoc: Royals fall apart against Buena

San Marcos was giving perennial power Buena all it could handle in the first 20 minutes of their Channel League soccer match.

The Royals were ahead 1-0 when the tide suddenly turned. Buena capitalized on a couple of errors to score two goals before halftime, and the Bulldogs dominated the second half and won 5-1.

“It was tough to watch,” said a frustrated San Marcos coach Macie Berlin.

Natalie Widmer scored the goal for San Marcos in the 18th minute off a feed from Emma Jones.

The Royals fall to 6-4-6 overall and 1-2-2 in league.
