EL DORADO — Revenge was sweet for El Dorado’s soccer team Tuesday which posted a 2-1 win over Union Mine to spoil the Diamondbacks’ Senior Night.

Union Mine won the first matchup 4-0 on the Cougars’ pitch.

El Dorado ( 2-11-1) scored its first goal in the second minute when Oscar Santana took advantage of a misplayed ball by the D’backs (2-11-1) near Union Mine’s net. Santana scored from two yards out for a 1-0 lead.

“The last three games we have really been turning the tide,” El Dorado coach Tony Giles said. “For them to be successful against their rivals, it’s a big step for our program.”

The Cougars’ second goal came at the 17th minute from Brandon Eldridge who worked the ball down the sideline, cut toward the middle and scored.

“We were possessing the ball, knocking it around, linking it up,” Giles said.

Union Mine head coach Christina Savage added, “It was tough because we made defensive mistakes right off the bat, and it’s hard to recover from those.”

The D’backs scored their only goal of the game in the 50th minute when Raine Scott carried a possession down the field and was successful from three yards out.

In the final 15 minutes, Union Mine had three shots on goal: both Scott and Bryce Yaple connected with the crossbar and Ernesto Aguilar’s shot to the side of the net.

“They were all great shots,” Savage said.

The Cougars’ defense toughened in the final minutes to preserve the win.

“I think in the end, they turned it up,” Giles said. “The last couple of games, they’ve really believed in themselves.”

Union Mine seniors who played their final home prep soccer game were: Trey Sturges, Esteban Gonzalez, Ryan Gunn, Juan Manuel Ballesteros, Nick Boring, Jett Hagerty, Levi Sattler-Petrocchi, Dalton Keck and Christopher Lee.
