Quick! Somebody tell the La Joya Juarez-Lincoln boys soccer team that they’re doing it wrong! As a former 4A team that just this year made the jump into 30-5A, a district that includes the defending state champion Sharyland Rattlers, the Huskies are doing it all wrong! They are not supposed to have bettered the Mighty Rattlers twice this season, they are not supposed to have a 12-1 record and they are most definitely not supposed to be atop the standings in one of the toughest 5A districts in the state.
Unfortunately for the Rattlers and the rest of District 30-5A, it doesn’t look as if head coach Victor Ramos’ Juarez-Lincoln squad is going to stop doing it wrong anytime soon; case in point: The Huskies’ 2-0 Tuesday night victory over cross-town rival and 2012 playoff team the La Joya Coyotes. This came on the heels of a 3-2 victory over Sharyland last Friday.
“It was a good game,” said Ramos. “We dominated the whole game and we tried to open up spaces, but they were playing defensively so it was kind of complicated for us to go in. We finally got a goal in the second half when they started playing offensively, which opened up spaces for us.”
