The former Hilo High two-sport standout recorded his first career goal and assist Monday as the Spartans defeated No. 16 San Francisco 4-1.
Tolentino-Perry, a sophomore midfielder, opened the scoring in the 14th minute, taking a centering pass from Omar Lemus and heading the ball inside the far post.
