CASTROVILLE — The soggy soccer match Monday at Condor Stadium ended up being a learning experience for both the Alvarez and North Monterey County high school boys soccer teams.

The Eagles believe they can hang with anyone. The Condors have work to do if they want to repeat last year’s memorable run.

Alvarez scored two goals within the first 12 minutes of the game, and that proved to be enough as it defeated host North Monterey County 4-1 in a non-divisional match.

Jose Alamo scored the first two goals for the Eagles, which improved to 4-0 this season.

North Monterey County also got a goal in the first 15 minutes, as Angel Flores got a feed from big man Adolfo Castellanos and fired it in past the Alvarez goalkeeper

The Eagles didn’t let another goal get by the rest of the way and kept their unbeaten streak intact.

“This was an eye opener for us,” said North Monterey County coach Sergio Marquez. “This will bring everyone back to reality. This will make us stop thinking about last season and let them know to make this season their own.”

Richard Gutierrez said the team is playing to prove to doubters it should be in the Monterey Bay League’s Gabilan Division, the stronger of the two leagues.

“I told them to go out and make a statement and let people know that we shouldn’t be down (in the Pacific Division) and that we should be playing with the big teams,” Gutierrez said. “They took the challenge.”
