The Varsity boys soccer team played the Vista Ridge Rangers last Friday in their first game of the season and fought to a 1-1 draw.

“It’s hard to tell how we stand up against everyone else in district after playing just one game, but I was very happy to earn a point against Vista Ridge,” head coach Russ Girard said. “They were a very good team. With that being said, the season is a long journey and we will have to see where we end up in March.”

The Lions scored first with a goal by sophomore Reid Jimenez and an assist by sophomore Angel Ruiz. However, the Rangers tied it up and the game finished 1-1.

I was very happy to earn a point against Vista Ridge.”

— Coach Girard

“We thought they were going to be really good and we were a little scared, but then we started playing well, so we felt we had a good chance of beating them,” Jimenez said. “Then I scored and all our confidence went up so we thought we could easily win this game until they got an easy goal.”

Up next the Lions will be playing at home against Vandegrift at 7:30 today.
