Tiger boys' soccer team nets avalanche of goals

Friday, April 15, 2011

Green Forest boys' soccer coach Juan Zuazua has a problem most coaches can only dream about.

His players score so many goals in most games it's impossible for him to keep up with who recorded the assists for his team.

This problem happened again for Zuazua on Monday in the Tigers' 12-0 victory over Bergman on April 8. In this game, an incredible 10 different Tigers scored goals.

Joao Cavalcanti led the Tigers with two goals.

David Beas, Eric Perez. Yazer Hernandez, Jose Pulido, Severin Phister, Rolyn Perez, Quebin Guerrero, Walter Valdez and David Rios each scored one goal.

Zuazua said the victory over Bergman is just another indication of how fine of a team he has this season. The Tigers are now 3-0 in conference play.

"This is the best team we have had in seven years," Zuazua said. "My team is in high gear. It will be very hard for anyone to defeat us."

The coach said he is looking forward to playing cross-county rival Berryville next Friday.

"I have been to three of their games and I have studied their game. I think I know their strengths and weakness now.

"We are ready to be conference champions for the third time in a row."

This year's Green Forest team is made up of players from all over the world, including Brazil and the Czech Republic.
