PREP BOYS SOCCER: Hat trick for Huerta

Redskin sophomore again has three goals in Redskin victory

EMMA — One player scored all three of the goals, but Goshen coach Viratham Mounsithiraj considered the Redskins’ victory Tuesday night at Westview to be one of the team variety.

Sophomore forward Isaac Huerta netted all three goals for the Goshen High School boys soccer team in a 3-2 win over the Warriors at Westview.

Westview had a lead of 1-0 until nearly halftime and a 2-1 advantage in the second half.

“That was what I talked to the kids about,” Mounsithiraj said. “Twice they were down and found ways to come back. Our skills did not win us this game. It was our effort.”

The Redskins played short-handed as three starters and two reserves missed the contest. Juniors Geovanny Martinez, Emmanuel Ortiz and Edson Trujillo were the missing starters. Senior Angel Gonzalez and junior Pablo Rangel were the absent reserves.

“It was good that we did what we needed to do to win,” Mounsithiraj said. “They missed the game due a meeting that was scheduled over the summer.

“I told the guys this is the way I would like to see them play all the time. The Westview kids never gave up. They kept putting pressure on us and their defenders were getting back all the time. They played for the entire 80 minutes and that is they way I would like to see our guys play.”

Westview coach Dennis Berkey was pleased with his team’s play.

“We didn’t show up last year at Goshen and we talked to the kids about that,” he said. “Tonight we got the effort we needed.

“It was a game of streaks. Goshen would possess the ball for a stretch of about seven or eight minutes and then we would control the ball. You would like to come out on the other side of the scoreboard, but I was pleased with our effort.”

Goshen (3-0) is at Northridge Saturday with a 7 p.m. start.

Westview (2-1) hosts Hamilton Friday.

Huerta’s game-winning goal came with 1:09 left to play. He was assisted by Antonio Zamora.

“Isaac (Huerta) is very competitive,” Mounsithiraj said.

“He helped us on the outside with his speed and quickness. We gave him the space and let him chase. He can put a lot of pressure on a defense.”

Huerta’s other goals were at 2:45 of the first half assisted by junior Jonathan Martinez and at 13:33 of the second half assisted by sophomore Antonio Zamora.

“We just never gave up in this one,” Huerta said. “We just kept on fighting.”

It’s the second straight contest in  which the first-year varsity player has scored three goals.

“The team did a great job of getting me the ball in the right places. My three goals were because of my teammates,” he added.

“On the last goal I saw one of my teammates with the ball and made a run. No one came up with me so I took the shot.”

Berkey felt his kids played well against Goshen’s speed.

“Overall we did a good job of handling their speed,” the coach said.

“Goshen puts a lot of pressure on the outside. Jaron Lewton and Damon Hershberger (Westview juniors) can attest to that fact.”

Westview took a 1-0 lead at 24:41 of the first half on a goal by junior Reed Oesch, assisted by senior Austin Borg.

The Warriors went up 2-1 at 21:03 of the second half on a goal by Borg with the assist going to sophomore Lucas Hunter.

The Redskins had an 8-7 in shots on goal while Westview was up 9-4 in corner kicks. Senior Hector Gallegos and sophomore Tyler Born both made two keeper saves for Goshen.

Junior Tarrin Beachy made two saves for the Warriors.

“Goshen finished that last play,” Berkey said. “It was not like Tarrin was out of position.”

 The Redskins (3-0) were 6-0 winners in the JV contest.

Scoring goals for Goshen were Jose Martinez, Kevin Argueta, Zamora, Seth Kurtz, Jesus Olvera, and Carlos Sevilla. Credited with assists were Zamora, Sebastian Flores Cruz, Alexis Martinez, and Angel Castillo.
