The San Pedro High boys soccer team would battle against in-city neighbor Port Of Los Angeles for the first time ever, and senior midfielder Patrick Schultz made this inaugural battle one to remember for him.

Schultz was a big reason why the host Pirates were able to come away with a 2-0 victory over the Polar Bears, since it was in large part due to his 36th minute goal and 64th minute assist that set up a scoring opportunity for senior forward Alejandro Vargas. 

POLA (0-3 overall) was only able to manage four shots against San Pedro junior goalie Cele Becerra, who managed to save two of them for the shutout.

San Pedro (1-0-1), coming off a 1-1 tie with University of Los Angeles in their season opener last Thursday, had several scoring chances and peppered shots left and right at Polar Bear goalies junior Elias Valenzuela, who had five saves, and sophomore goalie Brandon Mercado, who came up with six saves.

Schultz's goal came off a throw-in from sophomore defender Christian Sebastiani, as he was able to slip in the backdoor near the net where it almost looked like he was off-sides. In the second half, Schultz was also able to fire a high pass at the center of the box where POLA defended well at first, but it also left Vargas with a clear opportunity to shoot, as he blasted in his attempt past Mercado in the left corner of the net.

San Pedro will next take on Westchester on December 16 at home, while POLA will take on in-city neighbor Mary Star Wednesday at Daniels Field.
