Islanders News · Seniors Hallal Delivers and Leon Denies, CHS Boys Soccer Defeats Point Loma 2-1

Senior Eli Hallal dominated the pitch as CHS Boys defeated Point Loma 2-1 in a match that literally came down to the last couple seconds of the game.

Hallal bulleted a goal from 25 yards out early in the first half. Point Loma answered midway through the second half with a corner kick scramble to tie 1-1. With less than 5 minutes in the game, Hallal towered a header into the net to take the lead once again, 2-1.  With the exception of a brief post-yellow-card sideline visit late in the second half, Hallal played the entire game, dominating both offense and defense.

Drama escalated when a penalty inside the CHS box was called against the Islanders with just seconds before the end whistle. Senior goalkeeper Enrique Leon read the kick perfectly to deny Point Loma a tie, deflecting the penalty shot to win the game.  CHS Boys, 3-0, go to Mission Bay High School on Wednesday, April 11 to defend their perfect record.
