The Bobcat soccer team marked up another victory on Monday with a 6-2 win over the Clarksville Panthers, while the girls lost, 3-0.

Coach Tom Souden said the Bobcats' record is now 4-2-2, and that they are tied for fourth place with Clarksville in the 3A/4A standings.

Clarksville has the No. 1 rated goalie in the region, and Souden said, "He's good. It was impressive that our kids got six goals on him.

"Eric Hill played an aggressive game and got two goals, one on an assist from Jose Ramirez on a corner kick. Eric slid in and side-tackled the kick and scored."

Souden said Sergio Aguinaga and Martin Pedraza also scored two goals each.


The girls lost 3-0 to Clarksville on Monday, in what Coach Souden called "our worst game of the season. We had a good chance to win, but it was hot and we got tired.

"We had three or four good chances to score, but it was like there was a fence in front of the goal. They scored on long shots, from 20-yards out."

Souden said Ginger Recinos played great at midfield, and Irma Aguinaga and Ana Arrizon had some good plays.

Coach Souden said their 6-0 loss was a learning lesson, as they faced girls that could really play the game.

"We had some great individual dribbling from Emma Cantele, and great defense by Daisley Juarez and Maribel Pinon," Souden said. "We learned a lot during the game."
