Ontario girls soccer team holds off Chaffey

Sam Nieves provided the game’s only goal as Ontario (11-4, 1-0) defeated Chaffey, 1-0, in the Mt. Baldy League opener.

After finishing the 2014-15 season at 1-9 in league play, the win against the Tigers is yet another stepping stone to what has already appeared to be a turnaround season for the program.

“This is a good one for us,” said Art Robles, head coach of the Jaguars. “This is the first time we beat (the Tigers) in a few years.”

Chaffey has won the last six meetings against the Jaguars, including last season’s league finale that end at 3-2 in overtime.

“The girls have been thinking about this game for a bit,” Robles explained. “We even had some alumni come back to watch the game.”
Goalkeeper Andrea Banuelos shutout the Tigers’ scoring attack at the net with six saves including a second half penalty kick.

Ontario will continue league play on Wednesday at 3:15 p.m. against Colony.

“We are very confident at this point in the season,” Robles said. “It is a good time to play (Colony.)”

PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Adrien Perez, Ontario, Senior, Forward
Take your pick: 23 goals, 12 assists, a CIF championship, a second consecutive league MVP. There were plenty of reasons to choose Perez (pictured above) as the Player of the Year, but what sealed the deal was the fact that he completed the last portion of a historic season playing through a debilitating knee injury. The Loyola Marymount-bound senior was the leader of a team that authored a legendary run through the Division 4 playoffs to claim the program’s first ever CIF championship and the second of any kind in the history of Ontario High School. Penalty kicks and overtime were how the final two games of the season ended for Ontario, but Perez was holding up a plaque when it was all said and done.

COACHES OF THE YEAR: Vince Mangione and Moses Venegas, Ontario
The co-coaches led Ontario to the school’s first ever soccer CIF championship and the second CIF title of any kind. The unseeded Jaguars defeated the No. 2 seed before winning a semifinal on penalty kicks over the No. 3 seed and ultimately claiming the CIF-SS Division 4 championship game in overtime on March 1. Of course, Ontario had to win its final five regular season games to claim a share of the Mt. Baldy League championship and begin the greatest postseason run in school history.
