PREP SOCCER: Position change nets NLC win for Goshen boys

GOSHEN — Player movement is something a coach wants from his team in soccer.

But it was the position change of Goshen senior Emmanuel Ortiz from midfield to forward that changed the complexion of a high school boys game with Northridge Saturday night at Goshen.

Ortiz netted a pair of goals for the Goshen Redskins in a 3-0 victory over the Raiders in an important NLC and Elkhart County matchup between the two rivals.

Earlier, the Raider girls blanked the Redskins, 5-0.

“Emmanuel is always a player that is going to create offense, either for himself or for a teammate,” Goshen coach Viratham Mounsithiraj said. “He will make things happen.”

Ortiz broke up a 0-0 tie with 1:34 remaining in the first half when he scored on a penalty kick. The Northridge goalie stopped the first attempt only to have the referee rule that he had moved off the line. Ortiz took advantage of the second chance.

“The goalie can move anywhere he wants as long as he doesn’t come off the line,” Northridge coach Todd Woodworth said.

“Anytime you give up a goal it deflates you a little bit. We had broken down so badly on the play it didn’t surprise me Goshen scored. But it did a little that it was on a penalty kick.”

Ortiz tallied the third Redskin goal at 29:25 of the second half. Junior Jesus Dominguez was credited with the assist.

“Emmanuel was at midfield in the first half and he wasn’t getting many touches since Northridge as most teams are going to do key on him,” Mounsithiraj said. “That’s why we moved him to forward for the second.”

Woodworth credited the way Goshen played as a reason for the way his team played.

“This group had played well up to this point, but that was not reflected in tonight’s game,” Woodworth said. “But you have to give credit to Goshen for that. It was very disappointing to me the way we played.

“The way Goshen played there was very little at the midfield. They have seven people behind the ball and then would move it down the field to the other two or three. It was pretty effective. Goshen is very talented up top and they took advantage of it. ”

“Northridge is such a good possession team,” Mounsithiraj said. “We told the guys they had to be patient and every time we got an opportunity we had to make the most of it. I was pleased we did that. At times in the past when we faced good possession teams we would get in a hurry and try to do things on our own.”

Dominguez tallied Goshen’s other goal at 35:36 of the second half assisted by Sebastian Flores-Cruz.

“All three of our goals were on counter attacks,” Mounsithiraj said. “That is one thing we keep telling they kids is soccer is a game where things don’t always happen the way you want.”

Goshen 4-0, 1-0 NLC) is at Plymouth Thursday while Northridge (3-2, 1-1) hosts Mishawaka Marian Monday.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
