The Lady Falcons defense: (Jr.) Citclay Ortiz, (So.) Nikki Gibbons, (So.) Kimberly Montes, and (Fr.)

(Fr.) Paloma Delgado was injured for the final game and unfortunately could not participate. “Today’s game, regardless of score started out with a huge needed bang. Intercepting passes and imposing will in the midfield and taking early shots on goal in the early 1st minutes of the game. We ended the season having zero subs and at times playing with 10 players, we ended this game with our head held high – I was very proud of their game ending season with the girls knowing where they stood throughout the whole game,” said Coach Marcos.
We played against North Phoenix Prep at Moon Valley tonight. We came out and played well from the beginning and won 8-0. Jacob Wood, Mario Montoya, Omar Escammila, Alex Ibanez, Chris Granados, and Muhammed Alkhakany scored goals today. We’ve been having some good practices of late and it was good to see the results on the field. We have an important game on Thursday and hope to continue playing well.
We played against valley Christian tonight at apollo. Im very proud of the way our guys played tonight. Everyone played real hard and had a real close game. Valley scored early but we scored a few minutes later off a great free kick from Mario Montoya that Jose Martinez connected with to tie the game up. We battled hard in the second half and came real close to scoring on a few occasions. Valley scored with 10 minutes left and won 2-1. It was unfortunate that we lost but I’m very happy with the effort. Now we just need to bring that same intensity for the rest of season when we get back from break.
