Cowboys season ends with 5-0 loss to Storm JV team
Summit proves to be too fast for Crook County in shut out victory
October 25, 2012
The Summit Storm JV team controlled the ball for much of the match as they took a 5-0 win over the Crook County High School boys soccer team.
The Storm jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the game’s first 10 minutes and never looked back as they rolled to the shutout victory.
“Even though we lost, I’m so happy with how the boys have improved,” said head coach Joel Carrillo following the match.
The contest was played on Summit’s artificial turf football field, and Carrillo believes that impacted the game.
“The kids were not prepared for a turf field,” he said. “It’s more difficult because the ball goes faster and Summit is a faster team. They are so fast.”
Carrillo added that once the Cowboys adjusted to the fast field, they were able to play better.
“It was good that the boys learned about how to play on a turf field,” he said. “Since it was the last game of the year, we wanted to play everybody and let them all have a chance to get used to that kind of field. It was a good learning experience for the boys.”
Carrillo added that he was especially pleased with the performance of goalkeeper Christian Nunez.
“He has learned so much,” Carrillo said. “He’s not letting the ball bounce anymore, and he made a lot of great stops.”
The loss was the final game of the season for the Cowboys who finish the season with a 3-11 record.
