The Beeville boys played the visitors even through most of the first 40 minutes. A Cardinal broke free with 11:24 left in the first half and got a good shot on goal that eluded the Beeville keeper to hit the back of the net for a 1-0 Southside lead. That score held up the rest of the half.
The second half was all Cards as the Southside boys scored four goals en route to a 5-0 win.
“There was some great efforts by our boys. While Marcos Ulloa was in the goal, he only let in two goals,” said head coach Taliesin McCall.
“This was a great effort as he had over 12 saves. The Trojans never let their heads drop, and never stopped hustling.”
Forward Steven Garcia made a good run at the Southside goal in the second half. Out front of a Cardinal defender, Garcia’s kick sailed just wide early in the second half that would have tied the match at 1-1.
The Trojans played the Harlandale Indians on Tuesday night in San Antonio. The team will be back in Beeville on Friday night to tangle with the Floresville Tigers in the first match of the second round of District 57-4A play.
