Varsity Girls Soccer vs Horizon Honors

The Lady Falcons traveled for their away game to Horizon Honors. North Pointe was outscored 4-0, yet the lady Falcons were able to keep the ball for the majority of the game on Horizons side of the field. However, during this game we had 2 minor sprained ankles leaving North Pointe to finish the game with 10 players. “Aside from the injuries in the game, our ladies fought hard and made us proud playing competitivly with 10 players for the whole 2nd half – our shots on goal just make it in the back of the net – everyone played with heart today.” Said Coach Marcos.

Varsity Boys Soccer at Casteel

We played our first game of the season against Casteel tonight. We played well the first half and were down 3-2 at halftime. We made too many mistakes and played flat the second half and lost 6-2. Mario Montoya scored both our goals. Freshman Simon Lopez played great in the back and had a nice assist to Mario. We have a lot of new young guys and have a lot of work to do. Tonight’s game showed us some areas that we need to work on and I think this group of guys is going to work hard to improve. 

Varsity Girls Soccer at Casteel

The Lady Falcons traveled to Casteel for their 2016 season opener. North Pointe worked as has hard as possible to defend their side of the field and put balls into the back of their opponents net, yet were outscored 8-0. Several injuries made it difficult for the Lady Falcons to keep their heads in the game. “Staying focused in difficult games such as these is our take away. Losses will happen yet losing our composure is not part of a winning formula –  lessons learned for the next match.” said Coach Gil.

Varsity Soccer at Amphitheater – AIA State Tournament

We gave the No. 2 team Amphitheater all they could handle but came up a little short in overtime, 2-0. Our defense played great all game and our keeper played amazing and had 16 saves on the night. At the end of regulation we came so close to winning the game on a great run from Justin Markus but he couldn’t quite beat their keeper.  In the overtime period, Amphitheater made two perfect shots from far out to win the game. “Even though we didn’t come away with the win, I am very proud of this team. We had a great season and definitely left it all on the field tonight. We are losing some key seniors but the future of North Pointe Soccer looks very promising,” said Coach Harrison.

Varsity Soccer at Glendale Prep

We had a very important game against Glendale Prep, needing a win to keep our playoff hopes alive. Our defense was great again all game.  We created a few good chances to score but just couldn’t finish. The score was tied 0-0 at half.  Glendale Prep went up 1-0 on a penalty kick with about 20 minutes to play. We knew we had to score so we were on the attack for the rest of the game.  Right before time ran out Mario Montoya crossed the ball to the middle and Erick Padilla made a beautiful volley straight into the back of the net.  The final whistle blew right after and we were headed into extra time.  A few minutes into extra time Christian Escobar made a perfect free kick to give us the lead 2-1.  We held onto the lead and kept our playoff chances alive.  We finished the season 7-4 (9-5 including a mid season tourney) and are right on the bubble to make the playoffs, depending on some other scores.  “Obviously we want to make the playoffs but even if we don’t I am very proud of this team and the way they battled all year,” said Coach Harrison.
