OHS Pirate Sports Update
Boys soccer scores OT upset
The No. 12-seeded Pirates upset the No. 5 Falcons, 2-1, on Diego Ruiz's golden goal just three minutes into overtime. OHS advances to the quarterfinals and travels to face No.1 San Diego at 5 p.m. Saturday.
After battling to a 1-1 tie through regulation, Oceanside wasted little time in the extra period. Yan Bautista squeezed the ball through to Hassan Diaz, who threaded a crossing pass to Ruiz who banged the ball into the net and started the celebration that was three years in the making.
Lincoln Newcomer gave the Pirates an early 1-0 lead on an assist from Eric Walker. The Falcons tied it a 1-1 just before halftime. The sides battled each other through a scoreless second half and into overtime before Diaz end it.
Girls basketball presses its way to quarterfinals
From the start, it was obvious what strategy the Oceanside girls basketball team was going to use against Helix Wednesday night. The No. 8 Highlanders had a distinct size and strength advantage against the No. 9 Pirates in the first round of the CIF Division 2 playoffs. Left with little choices, OHS had to make it a full-court contest using its variety of pressure schemes to tire out Helix. Objective achieved.
Oceanside raced out to a 25-12 halftime lead and never looked back pushing the lead to nearly 30 en route to a 54-38 victory. The Pirates will travel to No. 1-seeded Olympian Saturday. Tipoff is at 7 p.m.
Nevaeh Mageo led OHS with 23 points. Martina Griffin added 20 points. Alivia Gillespie had six points, which improves Oceansides record to 19-6.

Congratulations to our Pirate Players and a BIG Thank you!
Oceanside High School’s premium digital media production company. Our TV/Film & Broadcast Journalism students worked all fall semester learning and sharpening their production skills in order to bring you the finest digital entertainment that OHS has to offer.
Students were given the task to select a public work and copy it to the best of their ability. At this point in the semester we had covered the basics of camera operation and this was their first go around in implementing those newly learned skills. Enjoy the video below!
