In their second game of the season, after previously tying Cedar Park 1-1, the varsity boys soccer lost 3-1 to Rouse High School.

“I think we did a really good job of supporting one another in the midfield and defending first,” junior Cole Bolero said. “I think we could work on the third or second man tracking and counter attacks.”

The game kicked off in the low 30s with winds at Rouse and at halftime the Lions were down 2-0. However, sophomore Eduardo Escobedo scored off a half-volley the bring the score to 2-1. Later the Raiders finished the game off with another goal to seal the 3-1 win.

I am excited this year to see new leaders emerge and players showcase their abilities.”

— Coach Girard

“I thought we played pretty well during the game in keeping possession,” Escobedo said. “We just went behind early and the weather didn’t help.”

Up next the Lions will face off against McCallum starting at 7:30 at home.

“I am excited this year to see new leaders emerge and players showcase their abilities,” head coach Russ Girard said. “We have a talented team led by four year letterman Ian Milne and goalkeeper Anthony Rodriguez. Our goals will be to return to the playoffs and win games once we are there.”
