The Los Cuates Cougars suffered a minor setback at the hands of Resaca Middle School and lost a really close game, 2-1.  After giving up two goals in the first half, the Cougars finally woke up and came out in the second half playing very good defense.  Led by Javier Espinoza, Adams Uwimana and newcomer Ramon Garcia, the Cougars did an excellent job of not allowing the Gators another point.   Filling in at goalie and doing an excellent job was Eric Pizarro, who did not allow a goal.  Victor Hernandez kicked in the only goal for the Cougars with about 15 minutes left in the game.  The Cougars came very close to tying the game several times, but Resaca’s goalie did an excellent job of preventing it.  The next game will be on Monday the 19th vs. San Benito’s Berta Cabaza.  We will be practicing real hard this week to get back on track and add another “W”. Go Cougars!

 The Los Cuates Cougar Soccer Team lost their first game of the tournament on Monday (11-26-12) vs. Vernon 1-0 but got right back on track in the double elimination tournament by beating Coakley 1-0 last night.  Jesus Gonzalez scored the only goal of the game to send the Cougars into the quarterfinals of the Consolation Bracket vs. Berta Cabaza on Saturday at 9am at Greyhound Stadium.  If the Cougars win that game, they will play in the Consolation Championship Game at 11am at the same stadium.  Our goalie, Eric Pizarro and the defense led by Javier Espinoza, also included Frankie Aguilera, Ramon Garcia, Rodrigo De La Fuente, Mark Sanchez, Alexis Lucio, Jose Ortiz, and Noel Torres, denied any chance of the Coakley attackers from even coming close to scoring a goal.  Our offense which included Victor Hernandez, Adams Uwimana, Fernando Barrientos, Armando Quezada, Jesus Delgado, Eric Munoz, Samuel Garcia, Adrian Torres, Mario Mueller, Israel Cano, and Alejandro Maya had 8 shots on goal and just couldn't get the game out of reach for Coakley.  So the game was very exciting and tense. Good thing we only needed one goal.  Good Job Cougars and Good Luck in tomorrows games.  Go Cougars!

The Los Cuates Cougars Boys Soccer Team Is On Fire!   The team is playing their best soccer of the year after a slow start.  The Cougars defeated a very good Riverside team that no other Los Fresnos School could defeat this year, in a very tough and exciting game last night.  The Cougars came out tough and scored first in the first half with a goal by Jesus Gonzalez, who leads the team with 6 goals on the year.  But Riverside pressed hard and eventually scored on a controversial play with about 4 minutes left in the game to send the game into penalty kicks.  Eric Pizarro would block the first kick by Riverside, but the next three would score.  On a stroke of luck, the last Riverside kicker shot the ball wide right and missed.  Adams Uwimana, Jesus Delgado, and Victor Hernandez would score on penalty kicks to tie the shootout 3-3 with one kicker left for Los Cuates.  That kicker would be our very own Goalie Eric Pizarro.  With the game in his hands, Eric shot the ball at the bottom left corner of the goal past the Riverside goalie for the 4-3 victory.   Eric Pizarro was named MVP again as he was in the Tournament.  The Midfield played by Adams Uwimana, Jesus Delgado, Samuel Garcia, and Alejandro Maya, who filled in for a missing player, controlled the game very well and fought hard.  And last but not least, our very strong defense led by Javier Espinoza, Ramon Garcia, Rodrigo De La Fuente, and Frankie Aguilera did what they always do.  They stopped a very big and fast Riverside attack throughout the whole game.  Other players who helped in the victory were Adrian Torres and Armando Quesada.  Thanks to all who came out to support our team.  We couldn't do it without your support.  The Cougars will play their final game of the season on Monday December 10th vs. Liberty at 5:30pm at Liberty Memorial.  Please come out to support us on our final game.  Go Cougars!
