El Dorado 0, Vista 0

Defense was successful for the El Dorado High boys soccer team in its Sierra Valley Conference contest against Vista del Lago at the Cougars’ field Tuesday.

Vista, which averages nearly three goals per game, was held scoreless thanks to the Cougars’ mark-up defense. The Cougars’ offense was also held in check and the match ended in a 0-0 tie.

“Our defense has been suspect, and what the boys haven’t been doing is stepping to the ball the past two games,” El Dorado head coach Tony Giles said. “But these guys stepped up. It’s all coming together.”

In the first half, El Dorado (0-1-1, 0-3-1) had two chances to score against Vista (1-1-1, 5-1-1). In the 19th minute, forward Jose Santana battled with a Vista player for the ball and drove it 15 yards toward the net but missed wide.

In the 26th minute, Gabe Hurwitt also had a shot at the goal but the Eagles’ goalie moved up to make the grab.

Although the Cougars were unable to score in the first 40 minutes of the game, the defense of Hurwitt, Santana, Michael Seguira, Alex Jimenez, Javier Aguilar, Manny Guerra, Aaron Line, Tyler Rossi and Chance Hospitalier played toe-to-toe with the Eagles.

In the second half, that unit plus Isaac Bugbee continued their standout play that kept the ball at midfield most of the final 40 minutes. At the 50th minute, Segura had another shot but missed.
