- Ohlone 1, Marin 1
Late Tuesday afternoon the Renegades of Ohlone took an early lead against the Marin Mariners when play up route one, the middle of the park, opened up for sophomore Greivn Pacheco Quesada who found Martin Lopez on the break and the perfectly slotted ball caught Lopez at full stride beating the Mariners' back line, keeper Brunet for Marin spotted the action too late and could only come out to see Lopez neatly tuck the ball to the right side of the goal. This goal looked to be one of many for Ohlone as they marched through the field controlling much of the game.
Taylor Leidlheist sought to add another mid way through the half with a 35 yard shot that was unfortunate to hit the cross bar top from a direct free kick.
Ohlone's possession was certainly improved from last year's match against Marin, but still only a draw and single point could be taken as Marin were able to capture the final touch on a late minute direct free kick that bounced off the Ohlone wall and was scoped up by the Mariners Michael Carvalho for the draw goal against keeper Michael Beigarten.
Up to this point Beigarten was near flawless in his on field performance. Although Marin was kept mostly at bay, as the back line were led by Raoul Chavez, Beigarten did come up big with an early first half save a near point blank shot by Bengy Ruiz, giving Ohlone more confidence in its defensive third.
Half two, Quesada was unable to put the game out of reach of Marin on three breakaway attempts where one versus one with the Marin keeper failed to bare the fruits of his effort.
Coach Nordmo praised the play of sophomores Hector Romero and Chase Brower, and also new freshmen Jose Rodriquez and Jorge Alcaraz, who both helped anchor the back and midfield.
