Soccer: Bobcats keep themselves in race

Tuesday, April 20, 2021

The Berryville Bobcats are hoping to force a three-way tie for the 4A-West conference championship. They did their part by recording two wins last week — beating Dardanelle 3-0 and Gentry 8-2.

“Going in, we knew Dardanelle was going to be be pretty big with with conference seedings and everything,” Berryville coach Bryce Moorman said. “Our kids did a great job understanding that as well. We we just took care of business. Our kids played great on the back half. We were able to get some goals that put them (Dardanelle) under some pressure. Our kids played loose, they played enthusiastic. It was awesome watching them do that.”

David Tapia scored two goals and Freddy Roque scored one for Berryville.

Against Gentry, the Bobcats gave up two first-half goals but that wasn’t enough for the Pioneers to overcome five goals by Tapia, two by Jesus Monroy and one by Francisco Tellez.

Berryville will host Harrison on Tuesday and visit Huntsville on Thursday.
