SAN JOSE — The Grizzlies had their chances, but like so many other games this season, they struggled to find the back of the net.

Once the kings of 1-0 games, Pajaro Valley High’s boys soccer team saw its season end by that score, as Lincoln High’s lone goal held up in the first round of the Central Coast Section Division II tournament.

It was the Grizzlies’ seventh 1-0 game this season. It’ll be their last, as they were unable to get the advantage against the Lions.

Pajaro Valley tried to stuff the box with players in hopes of getting a goal by the Lincoln defense. The Lions responded each time by clearing the ball out.

In the 66th minute, Sergio Conda got the ball on the left side but was being nudged over to the left corner by a Lincoln defender. Conda broke free and, despite being parallel to the goal, let a shot attempt go. The ball nearly curved in and the Lincoln goalkeeper blocked the ball at the final moment, giving Pajaro Valley a corner kick that eventually got cleared out.

In the 74th minute, midfielder Miguel Fragoso raced down the left sideline with the ball. He passed it to Jonathan Cordova, who dodged a couple of Lincoln defenders before letting the ball fly. The ball went right at the Lincoln goalkeeper.

Lincoln tried to take advantage of Pajaro Valley playing up, as it got two man advantages in the final three minutes of the game. The Pajaro Valley defenders got back just in time to stop any shot attempts from materializing.

“We pushed up an extra midfielder to create more chances, and we kept the passes going,” said Pajaro Valley coach Juan Roman. “We just couldn’t put it in. That’s been our story the whole year.”
