The Coastal Bend College men’s soccer team didn’t win last week, but the Cougars did leave with a sense that they can compete for a region championship. The Cougars (1-2-1) played to a 2-2 draw with visiting Jacksonville in their home opener on the CBC campus, then fell 3-1 to defending national champion Tyler. “I, as well as the entire team, feel like there’s nobody in this division that we can’t go toe-to-toe with the rest of the season,” said first-year Cougar coach Brian Byrd. “We really built our confidence over the past few weeks and we’re excited about moving forward.” Against Jacksonville, the Cougars rallied for the lead, but a late goal forged a tie. Jacksonville scored in the fifth minute, but CBC tied it in the 45th minute when Gerson Flores found the back of the net. In the second half, Abraham Lopez put the Cougars on top in the 60th minute on a run out after a through ball. Jacksonville scored in the 78th minute to tie it, though. “We gave up a goal that we shouldn’t have,” Byrd said about the finish. “We played much better than the other team. “We need to learn how to finish games.” Against third-ranked Tyler, the Cougars had a chance to tie it in the second half, but were denied on a penalty kick. Martin Agredo scored two first-half goals to put the Apaches ahead, but CBC cut the margin in half when Lopez scored in the 60th minute. The Cougars had a chance to tie it shortly thereafter, but Tyler’s Junior Santos turned away a penalty kick. Agredo added a third goal in the 72nd minute to cap the scoring. “The boys played really hard. It was a very physical game,” Byrd said about the Tyler match. “We missed a penalty kick that could have tied it up at 2-2 and, right after the penalty kick, they went up 3-1. “We fought really hard the rest of the game. The boys played with a lot of pride. We’ve got to learn to beat teams like national champions if we want to get to the next level.” Kevin J.

Soil & Water District announces conservation awards
Image 1 / 4
BEEVILLE – The Bee Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) hosted a Local Work Group (LWG) meeting on Aug. 20 with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) at First National Bank. The SWCD and NRCS have the LWG every year to give people involved in Bee County agriculture an opportunity to provide their input on how conservation funding should be allocated for the next fiscal year; about 17 area producers attended the meeting. The Bee SWCD annually recognizes Bee County ag producers with conservation awards. Awardees are producers who are doing an exceptional job in their category. The Bee SWCD Conservation Rancher for 2014 is Albert Kessler with the K3 Ranch of Cadiz. The Bee SWCD Friend of Conservation for 2014 is Fuller Tractor of Beeville. The Bee SWCD Conservation Farmer for 2014 is Mark Sugarek of Beeville. The Bee Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is a grass-roots organization which assists landowners in installing soil and water conservation practices in Bee County. The district is led by a five-person board of local agricultural producers who serve without pay and one paid clerk. The district is assisted by the NRCS and the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board (TSSWCB) technical personnel. While the main focus of their assistance is directed toward technical assistance to private landowners, they also assist local units of government by providing technical advice on erosion control, drainage, vegetation and soil information. The Bee SWCD is a state-empowered entity but is not a taxing authority; its operation relies solely on fund-raising projects and donations; any funds raised locally are matched by the TSSWCB.
