The Van Horn soccer players continue to get frustrated with teams packing it in the defensive end on them.
But the Falcons also continue winning.
Angel DeAvila scored two goals and assisted on the other as host Van Horn remained undefeated at 17-0 with a 3-0 Crossroads Conference win over Summit Christian Academy Tuesday.
“We dominated almost 100 percent but they packed it in again on us, and we had shots hitting bodies and legs,” said Falcons coach Jesus Rodriguez, who said his team outshot the Eagles 40-0. “The guys were frustrated by them packin it in again on us, but I told them to take that as a compliment. But they also had an exceptional goalkeeper. He had a big impact.”
Juan Rangel headed in a pass from DeAvila in the 20th minute for the only goal Van Horn (3-0 conference) needed. DeAvila made it 2-0 at halftime with a goal in the 32nd minute and then sealed it with a goal on a Luis Mejia assist in the 74th minute.
