CORPUS CHRISTI -- Floresville’s varsity Tiger soccer team made history this year when it qualified for the playoffs. The team had never reached the playoffs during the school’s history, and the Tigers went on to beat Victoria West and Rockport-Fulton during its first two playoff games. After falling to La Joya Juarez-Lincoln on April 10, however, the team’s season has come to an end.

The Tigers faced off with a tough Huskies soccer team, and eventually fell by the score of 4-1, but the contest wasn’t a runaway.

La Joya scored the game’s first goal during the first half of play, but Floresville did a great job holding off the majority of attacks. Floresville Head Coach Robert Trevino said the Huskies had about 13 shots on goal in the first half alone, yet time expired in the half with the score at 1-0. Trevino praised his experienced defense, crediting Richard Marrero, Joseph Martinez, Gerardo Alvarado, Rafael Arellano, and goalkeeper Esteban Mireles.

In the second half of play, La Joya found ways to exploit the Tiger defenses, and managed to tack on another 3 goals. Floresville managed to score a goal of its own, as junior Godswill Orzabal used his speed and ball-handling skills to get free over the right side of the offense, and take a line-drive shot into the open net. When the game finally came to an end, the Tigers were a bit short, falling 4-1.

“We faced a tough, well-coached team,” Trevino said. “It was a great benefit to our kids to get that experience.”

Trevino also took a moment to reflect on the Tigers’ record-setting season. The team will return a number of players next year, and the Tigers should be back in the hunt.

“Overall, the season was a success,” Trevino said. “I am so proud of all my players for their dedication, and for buying into being great teammates, and all the sacrifices that come with it.”

Floresville ends the 2012 soccer season with an overall record of 13-10-2, and went 8-2-0 in district play.
