Munoz goal delivers 1-0 win and first place for Eagles in tight Pac 7 race

Oscar Munoz sent the ball just beyond the outstretched hands of the San Luis Obispo goalie to deliver a 1-0 win for the Arroyo Grande boys soccer team on Monday night. The victory helped the Eagles recapture first place in the final week of league play in the jam-packed Pac 7 standings.

The Eagles improved to 9-1-1 in league and 15-8-2 overall.

Romario Mejia sent a ball from midfield past the Tigers defensive unit in the 36th minute and Munoz was able to score from about 5 yards outside of the penalty box with what proved to be the only goal of the game.

AG closes out the league portion of its schedule on Wednesday at Paso Robles. The Tigers host St. Joseph.

The game started with a moment of silence to honor the memory of Alex Maier, a senior forward from the Tigers, who passed away last week from injuries sustained in a car accident. AG players wore black arm bands to show their respect for Maier and the SLO High community.

The Eagles catapulted back into first place after Righetti lost 2-0 at home to Pioneer Valley. The Warriors are now 8-2 in league, while PV is 8-2-1. The Eagles can win the outright title with a win on Wednesday. The Panthers need to win their league finale and have AG to share the crown with the Eagles. The Warriors could capture the outright title with two wins the rest of the week and an AG loss.
