HITTING THEIR STRIDE

Berries take down Bronchos for 3rd win in last 4 games

Logansport’s boys soccer team continued its strong play of late with a 4-1 win over visiting Lafayette Jeff on Wednesday.

The Berries jumped out to a 3-0 lead at halftime and held on in the second half despite playing almost all of it with just 10 players due to a red card.

“We dominated the whole game, I thought,” said Berry senior captain Luis Gonzalez. “We had a good effort of challenging the shots. We played pretty good defense this game, we didn’t get the shutout, but we still contested the shots and didn’t let them attack crazily.

“We challenged and pressured the balls in the air, especially Phil Stephenson, who had good wins in the air.”

For the second straight game the Berries (3-2) struck very quickly. Just over a minute into the game Gonzalez bent a corner kick towards the goal that a Jeff defender knocked in for an own goal to give Logan the early lead.

Hector Enriquez scored in the 27th minute and Gonzalez struck in the 30th minute after excellent team play by the Berries, and they took the 3-0 lead into the half.

Logan’s Pedro Hernandez was playing a good game defensively but was called for a double yellow card for dissent five minutes into the second half, leaving the Berries with just 10 players on the field for the final 35 minutes. He will have to sit out the next game as well.

“It wasn’t for physical play, it was for dissent toward the referee,” LHS coach Mike Turner said. “He knew he fouled, he just thought they both should have been called for a foul.”

The Bronchos capitalized when Brian Carapia scored on an assist by Jesus Rodriguez with 21:43 remaining.

The Berries answered that goal when Orlando Casimiro earned a penalty kick and drilled it through to make it a 4-1 game with 15:35 to play and were able to hold on from there.
