It was another busy Friday in San Antonio varsity soccer as the teams continued their early season play, warming up ahead of district play. In the biggest match of the night Steele showed why they are highly rated as they managed a big 3-1 win over Harlandale, the same score line that Central Catholic managed to beat Johnson by, while Boerne Champion managed a 2-0 win over MacArthur.
The first half was tight between the two sides, but eventually Steele’s quality showed and they claimed the victory. Senior forward Jason Fotakis was the key man for Steele as he scored one and provided an assist.
Steele opened the scoring through Fotakis as he put away a ball sent in to the box by senior midfielder Kendall Hayter. The ball found Fotakis perfectly allowing him to apply the finish and put Steele ahead.
But before halftime Harlandale pulled a goal back as junior midfielder released an impressive shot to level the scores heading in to the break. Despite that Steele kept their heads up and was able to come out from the break determined to restore their lead.
It wasn’t long before Steele had their second goal and got the lead back as Fotakis turned provider setting up junior forward Matthew O’Brien. Later in the half Steele wrapped up the 3-0 win when Matthew Madrey found the final goal.
In a rare battle between a private and public school Central Catholic ran out the winners against Johnson, winning 3-1. The lone scorer for Johnson was Ethan Caban, who put away the ball from Seth Holzmann.
For Boerne Champion the star was Tyler Childs the senior attacking midfielder who scored a goal either side of half-time. The first was assisted by Darwin Cruz who continued his good form while the second came from Nathan Gilbert, allowing Childs to wrap up the 2-0 win.
