District 32-4A champs Juarez girls ready for deep post season run

20120323-J-L-Girls-Soccer_dy-008It is not often that a school in its first season of athletic play is able to set the standard for subsequent teams down the road but that is what the 2009 Juarez-Lincoln girls did when they reached the regional quarterfinals of the state tournament.

That special team benefited from having some of the best players from La Joya the year before. That experience helped the Lady Huskies take down Edcouch-Elsa and Veterans Memorial before losing to Beeville Jones.

Alexandro Davila coached the team then as well as now and feels this year’s 2012 squad has the potential to go just as far.

Bench gives Mission first district victory over Sharyland

20120316_Soccer_Boys_Sharyland_v_Mission_lg_012MISSION – Playing with half their bench, including a few JV players, Mission held off Sharyland on Tuesday to defeat the Rattlers 3-2, and claim their first District 30-5A victory over their archrival at Rattlers Stadium.

Due to a missed practice, several of Mission’s starters were benched for the game against Sharyland by Eagles head coach Christos Barouhas, including starting goalkeeper Erasmo Vásquez, who was substituted by Alvaro Gonzalez.

“Yesterday we had practice and seven of our guys didn’t show up, so I suspended everybody for the game today, including my starting goalkeeper,” Barouhas said. “I had a lot of subs and three JV kids I moved up, and they did a great job. They knew what was at stake, and we won the game. It was a dramatic game, Sharyland always gives us good games, but we picked it up, especially the kids that hadn’t played before.”

Crucial soccer matches as end of district appears within sight

Two weeks from now, the district soccer season will be concluding for the Big Six schools of districts 61-4A and 30-5A. With no games next Friday due to Spring Break, the local teams only have four games remaining to secure their playoff spots and work towards a district championship.

For the boys, the district championship won’t be easy as both defending district champs are currently in second.

Sharyland was upset by Donna a week and a half ago, losing 3-2. Officially, the Rattlers are tied with Donna in the win/loss column and also in their point total, but the team’s two losses have come at the feet of the Redskins and thus relegating the defending champs to second place.

With only home games left on the schedule, Sharyland has a great opportunity to win the rest of their games. However, the Mission Eagles will pose a challenge to that strong finish.

Coach of the Year:
Andy Saenz, PHS

The second year coach turned around a district cellar dweller and took them to never before seen heights, winning 24 games and finishing fourth in district play. Saenz also competed well with the district’s traditional powerhouse teams, sweeping McHi and splitting with Memorial. The coach worked his boys hard during the offseason and it paid off as Mario De La Garza, Dominick Garza and the rest of the team helped make basketball relevant at Palmview.
