Mario Saenz delivers for Sierra Vista: The Sierra Vista High School boys soccer team entered Thursday’s CIF-Southern Section Division 4 boys first-round playoff game against visiting Culver City after learning earlier in the day it had lost junior forward Sebastian Ocampo, who was declared academically ineligible after scoring 24 goals and a big reason the Dons were undefeated and the second seed.
But Sierra Vista still has part of its dynamic duo with senior striker Mario Saenz, who picked up the slack by scoring both goals in the Dons’ 2-1 victory over the Centaurs to advance to Tuesday’s second round against either Bishop Amat or La Mirada.
