After a busy Tuesday of Varsity soccer, Wednesday saw just three matches throughout San Antonio. Clark won two matches against Brennan while a thrilling match saw South San Antonio manage a win against McCollum in a nine goal game.
In the only girls’ match of the day, Clark managed a 2-0 win over Brennan at Farris Stadium, with both goals coming in the second half. Clark’s win that came late keeps their perfect run going, as they now move to 3-0.
The woman who starred for Clark in the win was Emma Troilo who provided the assists on both goals. The freshman forward showed that she has a strong soccer career ahead of her, proving vital to her team throughout the match.
In the first half, neither side was able to find a goal, after a half which was often bogged down in midfield. Despite that, Clark always seemed to have a measure of control over the match, and eventually in the second half that would show through.
Sarah Steffen, the sophomore midfielder, scored the opening goal for Clark through Troilo’s assist. Troilo was able to get space and then was able to cut the ball back for Steffen to run on to and powerfully hit it past the keeper.
The second goal, and eventual winner was scored through an all-Freshman combination as Troilo was able to set up her strike partner Andrea Santos. Santos was able to bury the chance well and wrapped up the 2-0 win.
In the boy’s game it was a much easier win for Clark as they cruised to a 4-0 win with two goals in each half. Clark dominated the match from the opening whistle with junior midfielder Daniel Rodriguez the star, scoring two goals and providing an assist.
Angel Caballero scored the first goal of the match as he put away the ball from Luis Carlos Garcia, and they never looked back. Daniel Rodriguez scored the second goal of the match, again off a ball from Garcia to make it 2-0 at the half.
After the break Daniel Rodriguez was at it again, this time putting away after a ball from Alex Villarreal. The final goal was an all Rodriguez combination as Daniel Rodriguez turned provider, setting up Alan Rodriguez to wrap up the 4-0 win.
Fans were treated to a stunning nine goal match as South San Antonio managed to put six past McCollum. South managed to take a 3-1 lead in to the break, which saw them control it, despite a strong come back from McCollum, they cruised to the 6-3 win.
