The 2017 All-San Pedro News Pilot Prep Boys Soccer Team

The 2016-2017 seasons for San Pedro, Port Of Los Angeles and Mary Star Of The Sea High boys soccer was a curious mix. One school would repeat as a league champion, another suffered through forfeits, and another benefited from forfeits to become a league champion.

That repeat champion would be Mary Star High, as the boys soccer team and head coach Chris Guastella started off the season hot, finish 13-3-3 overall, and win nine Camino Real League games in a row to successfully defend their league title even though it did mean sharing it with St. Paul of Santa Fe Springs, who dealt the Stars their only defeat in a league opener.

The season ended prematurely with a 4-0 first round loss to Wilson of Hacienda Heights in the CIF-Southern Section Division 6 playoffs, but that didn't diminish the accomplishment for Mary Star, or high-scoring junior forward Victor Garnier, who earned his second San Pedro News Pilot Prep Boys Soccer Player Of The Year award.

Garnier, who scored 45 goals as a sophomore, once again posted high marks for Mary Star this season.

Meanwhile, San Pedro and coach Peter Hazdovac navigated through a tough beginning, found their footing fast and ended up as the Marine League champions by a technicality, having never defeated Banning of Wilmington (2-0 loss & 1-1 tie), yet the Pilots forfeited five league wins and lone tie. Even so, the Pirates still finished 13-5-3 overall, 8-0-2 in league as they made things tough on everyone else, with the two ties coming against Narbonne of Harbor City.

In spite of their 1-0 loss to Reseda in the first round of the CIF-Los Angeles City Section Division II playoffs, Hazdovac is still honored as the 2017 San Pedro News Pilot Prep Boys Soccer Coach Of The Year.

It was a really hard pill to swallow for Port Of Los Angeles this year, as they forfeited four wins and two ties due to an ineligible player (fifth year of eligibility) to finish 1-13-1 overall, 1-11-1 in the Crosstown League.
