Marble Falls boys soccer finishes year with 3-0 win against Vista Ridge
FROM STAFF REPORTS
MARBLE FALLS — The Marble Falls High School boys soccer team ended their season with a 3-0 victory against Cedar Park Vista Ridge on March 19.
The win ensured the Mustangs finished the year on a two-game winning streak.
“It feels good,” Marble Falls head coach Michael Nave said. “It’s certainly special for the seniors.”
After a scoreless first half, Nave said he told his players this contest was like so many in District 51-4A: physical, with very few mistakes.
So 30 seconds into the second half, sophomore Jesse Arreguin scored the first goal. Six minutes later, senior Eric Dominguez added the second goal with an assist from Arreguin.
Then 20 seconds after that came a 45-minute delay because of lightning.
“I was very concerned (the delay) would stymie the momentum we had,” Nave said. “And (Vista Ridge) might see it as an opportunity. I told our players that we can’t let it be an opportunity for them, and they didn’t.”
With the win, the Mustangs finished the season tied for fourth in district but missed the playoffs because of goal differential. Marble Falls was -7, while Vista Ridge was -1.
ON OFFENSE: Goals – Jesse Arreguin, unassisted (2nd half, 39:30); Eric Dominguez assisted by Arreguin (2nd half, 33:44); Dago Galvan assisted by Irvin Camacho (2nd half, 14:20)
RECORDS: Marble Falls finishes the season at 12-8-2 overall and 4-6-0 in District 51-4A; Vista Ridge was 4-6 in district play.
