CCISD soccer boys ready to open 24-5A campaign – Houston Community Newspapers: Sports
With tournament play over, District 24-5A will open the boy’ssoccer season on Tuesday, Feb. 1, with a full schedule.
Clear Creek played in the Vista Ridge Tournament. the Wildcatsbegan by defeating Lubbock 3-0 in the first game, but then lost toWaco 1-0 and Hendrickson 2-0.
The injury list grows for Creek.
“We are pretty beat up right now,” according to Creek coachChris Cobb. “We played eight games in 10 days. I have severalstarters out with injuries.”
Plans are underway to get everyone healthy in time.
“We are hoping to recover quickly and be ready to go 100% fordistrict,” Cobb added.
Clear Lake is feeling the aftereffects of losing players tograduation last year.
The Falcons are 2-5, not one of their brightest starts inseveral years.
Lake coach Jered Shriver can lament without hesitation after theKILT Cup in the Woodlands a couple of weeks ago.
“Although we went one win and two losses I felt like we playedsome positive soccer, especially with 19 or so new varsityplayers,” Shriver said.
“Getting so many guys varsity experience against such goodcompetition was very important.
“So even with one win, it was a decent weekend.”
This past weekend the Falcons played in the Pasadena ISD Cup.that didn’t go too well as Lake wound up the tourney 0-3.
“Those losses were much harder to take as we didn’t play as wellas our games in the Woodlands. Plus we had beaten Aldine 2-0 beforethe Pasadena tourney and had done so in pretty convincing fashion.So I was expecting much more positive soccer and better results,”Shriver said. North Shore downed the Falcons 3-1 and Pasadenaposted a 3-0 shutout over Lake.
However, he is not giving up on the Falcons.
“But my guys strongest asset is their work ethic,” Shriveradded. “They play and play and play.”
“I know my guys will gain more confidence in themselves asindividual players and more confidence in each other as a varsityteam.
“We’ll grow as players and develop more chemistry as the seasonprogresses. we are looking forward to our last two non-districtgames to straighten things out for our first district match againstBrazoswood.”
In a non-district game the Clear Brook boys posted a 3-0 shutoutover visiting Jersey Village. Senior defender and team captainLandon Sikes got his hat trick.
The Falcons host Brazoswood on Tuesday, Feb. 1, at 7 p.m.
