Torrey Pines Sweeps Titles

December 25, 1991

DEL MAR — Torrey Pines' boys' and girls' soccer teams won their respective championships of the Third Dave Goebel Tournament at Torrey Pines.

It was the first time the tournament featured a girls' division, and Torrey Pines won it in a landslide, beating Carlsbad, 8-0. In the boys' final, the Falcons turned a bleak first-half performance into a 2-1 victory over San Dieguito.

Coach Brian McManus said San Dieguito dominated the midfield and controlled 70% of the play in the first half, where Marguarito Rodriguez scored on a cross from Nate Hetherington for the 1-0 lead.

"I told the players they had 10 minutes if they wanted to play and they came out and did really well. They put pressure on right away."

Both Torrey Pines' goals came within that 10-minute window with Andy Strasner and Jose Carruitero scoring.

Torrey Pines (10-1-1) received $500, to be used for uniforms, for the victory. San Dieguito (10-1) received $250.

Sophomore forward Stacey Schweighart and freshman striker Summer Harrison were forces for the Falcons in the girls' game. Schweighart scored two goals--one unassisted--and had two assists and Harrison kicked in two goals as Torrey Pines improved to 8-0.

Also scoring for the Falcons were sophomore Kelsey Mullen, who added an assist and Ashley Hanson, who scored on a corner kick.
