The South Pasadena High School varsity boys’ soccer team split its two most recent Rio Hondo League games to move to a 2-2-1 league mark (5-4-3 overall).
Last week, the Tigers crushed San Marino, 7-0, on Wednesday as junior Shota Maekawa scored a game-high two goals. Juniors Tilo Andac and Oscar Cassidy, and sophomores Roman Ogawa, Joe Hwang and Victor Zarazua each had one goal. Junior Aidan Kinney and Sawyer Fox had two and one saves, respectively, while splitting time as goalkeepers.
The Tigers ended the week by falling at La Cañada, 2-1, last Friday in a league rematch after previously tying the Spartans, 3-3, in earlier this month. Maekawa scored South Pas’ lone goal while Kinney registered five saves.
