Todays match vs. St Francis was not an easy match. We knew that our squad was going to be tested on both ends of the field. We kept up with their speed and dribble minute by minute, at times we were even stronger. Although the score does not reflect the actual level our Woodside soccer athletes put, this was a match that could have gone either way. Today I select Fernando as player of the game. This young man is not only devoted to this team and the program but shows very good character on and off the field. In todays match he showed very tough and clean approach towards our opponent and the speed and placement of the ball in open space was set to our Mids and forwards very accurately. Congratulations young man and hope to see more of this in future games.
Weave had several games recently where the attitude, emotions and enthusiasm has been super low. Today's match was different, you boys got it going from the start. Field conditions weren't great but you adjusted quickly, Weather was ok and the length of the match was shortened by 15-20 minutes but again, all of you adjusted and made the best of it. 2 great goals by Mario and one from one of our team captains Jose Capi and don't forget the assist by our two boys Omar and Lucas. I am very proud of all and most with the great job our defenders are doing this season. So far we have 2 matches with 0 goals allowed, that's awesome! Your making it boring for our great keeper Danny but I'm sure he's happy too. As I said before, today everyone played well but one stood out and that's our other team captain and central defender Fernando Gutierrez of who is elected Today's player of the Game. Congratulations Fernando and keep up the great work.
WHS faced the league-leading Scots tonight. a team that puzzled them so far, falling each time.
With a championship on the line, both teams were eager to exert dominance, but a scoreless draw was the result, positioning CHS into a two-way tie for first and clinching a post-season appearance on an AQ for Woodisde for the first time that this coach can recall in recent history.
Although no goals were scored for either side, it was a tenuous battle with WHS giving it's best performance, but not it's most capable against the Scots in three tries. The 0-0 draw sustains the Wildcats as the stingiest defense in league play, led through work by Isaac P-S, Mauricio L and Victor A.
But tonight, midfield play was highlighted. Possession changes were frequent, and the Wildcats did a better job of keeping control in the middle of the field. From this coach's vantage point, this was a result of Fernando G's effort. Gauze in nose, he continued to battle for the full 80.
With Victor scoring (A-Alex) in the 16th minute to give WHS the initial lead, M-A countered in the 32nd and 54th minutes to beat the Wildcats 2:0.
Along the way, the refreshing return of the effort and contribution of Fernando was observed. It was a relief to see his return to the field after a protracted, ill-timed injury.
