BSoc: Royals draw with Buena

San Marcos picked up its first point of the Channel League season on Tuesday in a 1-1 draw against Buena at Warkentin Stadium.

Junior Efrain Galindrez, who had almost put the Royals on the scoreboard earlier in the match on a shot that hit the goal post, finally broke through for San Marcos by heading home a cross. The goal evened the score at 1-1.

Besides Galindrez, San Marcos head coach Rob Lauderdale singled out performances from senior Jake Castanha and junior Andy Mandrell.

San Marcos stands at 0-1-1 in the league standings while Buena, which had a bye last week, is 0-0-1.

The Royals host Santa Ynez in a non-league match on Friday at 3:15.
