Alejandro Blanco led the Tigers to a 4-1 victory here Saturday in a state quarterfinal playoff match-up with the Providence Christian Highlanders. Blanco finished the game with a hat-trick. Jose Gonzalez opened up the game in the first minutes with the 1st and only goal of the first half. Blanco scored all 3 of his goals in the 2nd half. Two of them were from well-placed headers from amazing crosses by Omar Velazco and Ivan Figueroa. Alejandro’s other goal came off a self-play where he dribbled down the middle of the field and placed an unreachable shot to the top left corner. The Tigers now advance to the final four, where they will face off arch rival St. George’s in Sumner, WA at 8 P.M, November 18.
