Boys Soccer pulled out a dramatic 2-1 win over Crockett last night. The points were in jeopardy until a thunderous Luis Lopez strike from 25 yards was blasted in under the crossbar to settle the match. The winning strike was hit with such velocity that two or three goalkeepers could not have possibly made a save, and the technique required to produce such an effort on his “weaker” left foot made the goal even more impressive.
The team moved to 3W-0L-2D in district and extended their unbeaten overall record to 12 games (7-0-5). There will be little time for celebration though, as Austin High remains in first place with 12 points, and a crucial match to close out the first round of district against McCallum looms on Saturday morning.
Coach Zarate’s JVB picked up another big district win by a 3-1 scoreline. Jesus Nunez scored his first hat-trick for Lanier.
