Wildcats Soccer Coach Alexi Upton said opponent Nevada Community played really well in a 1-1 tie with the Wildcats Tuesday night (January 8) at Gerald Prim Stadium. He said several of the Braves play advanced club soccer. Coach Upton said soccer has advanced to where there are no longer any free games. He said everyone is good, knows how to play and will compete with you.

Coach Upton said if the Wildcats would have cashed in on some more of their goal chances, they would have won the game. He said the Wildcats had 5 to 8 chances to score down the stretch after they tied the game at 1-1. Coach Upton called the Community first half goal amazing.

In the second half, Wildcat Alejandro Diosdado scored to tie the match getting a nice assist from Enrique Arellano. Diosdado leads the Wildcats with 2 goals. Coach Upton said the Wildcats will be defensively sound but he said they need Diosdado and others like Arellano and Omar Hernandez to score goals. Hernandez is currently out with an ankle injury.

Coach Upton said the team is working on finishing their scoring opportunities and he added when they get better at that, the team will get much better. Wednesday Coach Upton said Kevin Yanez received the team’s pipe award for being the hardest worker for the Wildcats in the Community game.

The Wildcats, now 1-1-1 for the season play next in a Longview tournament Thursday through Saturday. Coach Upton said the Wildcats were in a pool with New Summerfield near Jacksonville, Jacksonville and Tyler Chapel Hill.
