ALBUQUERQUE — In one of the most stunning Class 4A state tournament results in recent memory, the eighth-seeded Capital Jaguars boys soccer team pulled off a gargantuan upset Thursday.

The Jaguars knocked off the top-seeded Albuquerque Academy Chargers 3-1 in the quarterfinal round of the state playoffs. The Jaguars scored twice in the opening half and picked up an insurance goal in the second half to advance to today's 4A semifinals.

Neither Academy nor St. Pius X, two of the most powerful teams in the state, escaped the quarterfinal round at the Albuquerque Soccer Complex. St. Pius, the No. 5 seed, fell to No. 4 seed and defending state champion Farmington.

The Scorpions (11-6) battled back from a 1-0 second half deficit to tie the score and send the contest into overtime. Jeremy Klepac and Naeem Begay netted goals for the Scorpions in the victory to topple St. Pius (12-8-2).

For Capital's Jaguars (17-4), who finished as the runners-up to Los Alamos in the District 2 race this season, Diego Pichardo, Luis Rios-Olivas and Jesus Garcia both earned goals in their upset.

Capital, which was scheduled to face Farmington this afternoon, split its two contests with Los Alamos this season.
