U4 Walmart vs. Pepsi

On Saturday, November 4, the U4 Walmart team played against the Pepsi team. Walmart players Bella Carrillo and Jacob Carter engaged the Pepsi team with several drives on the goal. Robbie Pollio took advantage of a loose ball and managed a huge single run drive that just missed the goal. Shaurya Multani played an exciting game in his assists. This was the last game of the 2017 U4 Fall season.

U10 El Cazador vs. Goad’s Home Improvement

On Saturday, November 4, the U10 Goad’s Home Improvement team defeated the El Cazador team 9-0. While Goad’s is the top team in the age division, El Cazador has one of the division’s youngest teams. Despite the score, both teams traded a lot of excitement on the field.

Offense was supported by Clara Mills and Robbie Rossman who always provide quick thinking and aggressive gameplay. They forced Goad’s to adjust positions several times in order to score, especially in using kicks that would clear their tenacious midfield position.

El Cazador’s offense managed several well-executed drives on the Goad’s goal. Wings Kevin Arqueta and Patrick Fowlkes managed to move forward aggressively and evenly with strikers Cherish Adkins and Maddie Wiebking during the first half. These were well executed plays that were disrupted by a key Goad’s player and a strong goalie.

Chase Lewis provided great defense during the match-up and once again disrupted several drives at key moments. Lewis returned several balls to El Cazador offense in those key disruptions.

Paige Owen managed her first full half in defense and disrupted several drives. As a new Southside Soccer player for the season, her higher level of engagement in this game demonstrated a massive level of improvement since August.

El Cazador player Asher Long provided great utility as a go-to player. He was critical in the striker role and demonstrated superior command of the game. Like Owen, Long played a solid game and provided great field coverage.

El Cazador player Daniel Hicks played the first half as goalie. He managed four saves on nine goal attempts. In the second half, Madison Taylor had five saves on nine attempts. Both goalies did an outstanding job against a very tough team, and a few of their saves were literally crowd-pleasing show-stoppers.
