BEEVILLE – On Friday afternoon, the JV Trojan soccer team started the second half of district play and had a chance to avenge a 4-1 loss that occurred earlier in the year to Floresville.

This time the results were much different and the match resulted in a 0-0 tie.

“One of the main reasons behind the tie was the stellar play of the defense led by the man in net, Cat Cisneros. He had another monster game keeping Floresville off the board,” said JV coach Joshua Blake.

Cisneros was assisted by teammates out front who included Nick Harris, Jared Landreth, Adrian Segovia, Daniel Chavez, Mo Solis (playing sweeper) and Christian Smith playing stopper.

“The defense has stepped up in the last few matches considering we have had very few offense of players. They understand they are being counted on to play hard the whole game and that is what they are doing,” Blake added.

The offense was led by Michael Sierra-Hoffman and Robert Rodriguez.

“These two combined to be a terror for Floresville as they had several shots on goals,” Blake said.

“They were not alone and without the help of Jason Garza, Bryce Koenig and Brent Koenig, they would have never gotten the shots that we got.”

During the game the offense had crisp passing and the Trojans were playing together.

“After the game I told the guys that was a great game and in soccer, a tie is just as good as win. They played their hearts out to avenge a defeat from earlier in the year and responded with a tie,” said Blake.

The young Trojans will be back at Veterans Memorial Stadium on Friday when the Pleasanton Eagles fly here.
