In the first district match of the season, the Tigers got the better of the young Beeville squad 7-0 in Floresville. The Trojans suited just 13 players on Friday and most were just sophomores against a senior-laden Tiger squad.
“Against a team with speed, they stayed on their forwards and shut them down. Against a team with age, they showed that you could not get through the heart and determination of the largely sophomore team,” said head coach Taliesin McCall.
The Trojans kept the bigger and faster Tigers bottled up the entire match. When Floresville did get a shot on goal, Beeville keeper Marcos Ulloa stepped up and made the save look routine.
“The back defensive line stayed on top of every shot and pass, and so Joshua Schwindt, Will Landreth, Kurt Treviño and Sean Hatfield made sure every ball kicked towards the goal was tipped or off-balance,” McCall said.
Ulloa came through with 17 saves in the contest to keep the Tigers caged.
“Ryan Casarez stayed on top of their main scoring threat, and the boys worked together to shut down Floresville. It was an incredible game that had both stands on their feet, and a strong message of the boys’ will and determination,” McCall said.
The Trojans played last night (Friday) at home against the Pleasanton Eagles.
