Cowboys fall to Cougar JV squad
Mountain View scores three second-half goals to take 5-2 victory
October 11, 2012
The Crook County High School boys soccer team suffered a tough 5-2 loss to the Mountain View Cougar JV squad Tuesday afternoon.
Crook County was originally scheduled to play Mountain View’s varsity team. However, according to Crook County High School athletic director Scott Polen, the schedule has been changed so that Crook County is now playing JV?teams in each of their matchups with the three Bend schools.
“When we went in there and saw that they put in JV?players, I tried to play everybody this time,” Crook County head coach Joel Carrillo said.
Mountain View scored early in the first half to take a 1-0 lead in the match. Crook County answered on a goal by Alonzo Lopez, then took the lead on a Diego Nunez goal.
“Diego’s goal was a really nice goal,” Carrillo said. “Really smart. And Alonzo carried the ball himself. They both showed really good skills.”
Mountain View scored the tying goal late in the half as the two squads went into intermission tied 2-2.
The Cougars took control in the second half, scoring three unanswered goals to take control of the contest. Ryan Bernhardt scored a pair of goals in the first 15 minutes of the second half for Mountain View. Andrew Bristow, John Nieto, and Phillip Orellana also scored for the Cougars in the contest.
“The second half was complicated,” Carrillo said. “It was important to get everybody playing time, but we got out of rotation. Then Mountain View started playing better and when I tried to put the best players back in, it was a little late. Mountain View has three teams and they have a lot of good players on their JV.”
With the loss, the Cowboys fell to 2-8 overall. The team faced Bend’s JV?team on Thursday, and then will host Redmond at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 16.
“We are going to continue to practice and work on our passing skills,” Carrillo said.
