A season of plenty: 2011-12 winter sports all-league teams announced Phillip Brents | Mon, Apr 30 2012 05:51 PM

The 2011-12 high school soccer season was one of plenty for Metro Conference teams. Heading into the semifinal round of the San Diego Section playoffs, four teams — two girls and two boys squads — were in contention of advancing to divisional championship games.

Alas, only the Hilltop Lancers won to qualify for their second consecutive Division II boys final. The Lancers (20-3-3) left it all on the field in the title contest against La Costa Canyon but somehow couldn't solve the underdog Mustangs in absorbing an eventual 2-0 defeat.

Southwest lost to eventual Southern California regional champion St. Augustine, 1-0, in the Division III boys semifinals.

Eastlake (Division I) and Bonita Vista (Division II) also advanced as far as this year's girls semifinals.

Hilltop successfully defending its Mesa League boys title while Eastlake won this year's Mesa League girls championship.

South Bay League champions in 2011-12 included Southwest (boys) and San Ysidro (girls).

Junior Samantha Arellano paced San Ysidro's best-ever team with a phenomenal singular output of 55 goals and 11 assists as the Cougars finished 15-7-2 overall (9-1-2 in league play).

San Ysidro dropped a 3-0 decision to visiting Poway in the opening round of the Division I playoffs.

Saints win So Cal boys soccer regional title
The St. Augustine Saints boys soccer team proved to be opportunistic victors in grabbing a somewhat surprising 1-0 decision over the second-seeded Southwest Raiders in the San Diego Section Division III semifinals on a chilly late February evening at Montgomery High School.

But the sixth-seeded Saints will likely say that luck had nothing to do with it, as they added four more victories to capture this year’s Southern California Division II regional championship title. St. Augustine (19-5-4) outlasted top-seeded Cathedral Catholic, 2-1, in kicks from the mark in the section final played March 3 at Mater Dei Catholic High School. The Saints then defeated, in order, Desert Mirage (5-1), Santa Ana Valley (5-4 in overtime) and Lindsay (2-1) en route to claiming the state’s top trophy.

St. Augustine finished an amazing 7-0 in post-season competition.
