El Toro began 2017 by defeating former Sea View League rival Mission Viejo 18-2. After winning two consecutive Sea View League titles, El Toro will play in the South Coast League this season.
El Toro’s unselfish offense took advantage of a defensive plan that seemed intent on shutting down Tyler Collins, the Chargers’ leading scorer. All offensive starters participated in the El Toro scoring. The Chargers’ barrage was lead by Jared Vlach who scored 6 goals on 7 shots. The faceoff combo of Triston Ranullo and Dylan Holmes won 16 of 21 attempts.
The Chargers (1-0) travel to Santa Margarita on Friday for a matchup of defending league champions. It will be the season opener for Santa Margarita.
