Prep roundup: Coahulla Creek back to winning ways in soccer

Following back-to-back Region 5-3A losses after an undefeated start to the season, Coahulla Creek High School’s boys soccer team needed a win Saturday against visiting Sonoraville.

The Colts — ranked No. 9 in the eurosportscoreboard.com Class 3A poll — got the win, a 3-1 victory that improved them to 6-2-1 overall and 5-2 in region play.

Now, they need a rest.

“It is good to bounce back from the losses,” Colts coach Eric Parker said. “You could tell the boys are tired. We are keeping things in perspective. We are playing all right. We just look emotionally and physically drained.”

It was the third region contest in five days for the Colts, and the team will get a break this week with games on Tuesday and Friday only.

“I need a few days to get our legs back a little bit, and it is good to have a little break,” Parker said.

Martin Garcia scored 10 minutes into the game for the Colts, and the first half ended in a 1-1 tie. Sadoth Fraire put Coahulla Creek ahead for good with a goal in the 54th minute, while Alex Vivar added an insurance goal late.

Coahulla Creek girls 5, Sonoraville 1: Regina Pacheco finished with a hat trick and also had a pair of assists as the Lady Colts (3-6, 3-4 Region 5-3A) rolled to the win during the morning match in Varnell.

Nohemi Reyna scored off of a corner kick from Pacheco and Hannah Grant added the final goal off of a Pacheco assist as well. Keeper Melissa Cabrera finished with 15 saves.

“It was the best game we have played all year,” Lady Colts coach LaDawn McClary said.

“The defense was solid, and everyone was in the right positions. You can really see everyone really buying into what we are trying to do.”

Dalton boys 2, Maryville (Tenn.) 0: Justen Macias scored in the 14th minute to put the Catamounts (8-0-1) ahead and Kobe Perez added a second goal in the 45th minute as Dalton wrapped up its time at the Cleveland (Tenn.) Invitational.

Dalton, which is undefeated in 31 straight matches, outshot its opponents 15-2. Catamounts goalkeeper Samuel Fraire made one save in the shutout.

Northwest Whitfield boys 3, Siegel (Tenn.) 0: Bryan Villa scored and set up another goal as the Bruins (4-2-2) rolled in their first of two games Saturday at the Cleveland (Tenn.) Invitational.

Nicolas Infante and Miguel Villa each added a goal for Northwest, while Kevin Centeno had an assist and Jose Marquez recorded eight saves to earn the shutout in goal.

Northwest outshot Siegel 18-10 and won nine corner kicks to Siegel’s two during the morning matchup.

The Bruins’ second game, against Oakland (Tenn.) was not completed at The Daily Citizen’s deadline.

Southeast Whitfield boys 1, McCallie (Chattanooga) 0: In the final day of the Baylor Invitational in Chattanooga, Artemio Lopez scored off of a corner kick from Isael Gutierrez in the final minute of the game, which was played at McCallie.

The Raiders (7-1-1), ranked No. 3 Class 4A, had two consecutive corner kicks as the game drew to an end, and after McCallie was able to knock the ball out the first time, Southeast converted on the second chance.

“It was the third game in three days for both teams, and you could tell,” Southeast coach Kevin Kettenring said. “Both teams were just kind of knocking it around.”

Southeast finished with a 10-7 edge in shots on goal, and Ivan Ortiz had a pair of saves in goal for the shutout.

Dade County girls 3, Murray County 0: In a late result from Friday, the Lady Indians fell to 4-3 overall and in Region 7-2A play.
