Boys Soccer Extends Unbeaten Start to Six Games

Boys Soccer had a huge weekend winning all three of their matches at the UT Club Soccer Tournament. The team showed class and heart in pulling off wins over strong programs from Wiess, Sulphur Springs, and Cedar Creek by a combined score of 12-4. This group has maturely dealt with adversity and injuries to important members of our team, and they just keep playing the game, never believing that they are out of it. They have great chemistry. They are unselfish. They root for each other, and they don’t care who gets credit for scoring the goals.

In the match Saturday, Lanier took on a Cedar Creek team, led by one of the best high school players in Central Texas, that has never lost to Lanier and not been beaten by more than two goals in the past four years. Lanier went behind in the first minute of the 2nd half before showing great poise, sticking to the plan and running off four goals without reply to earn a huge 4-1 win for our program. The team now has a record of 4-0-2 and will look to continue the unbeaten start against Eastside on Tuesday night at Nelson Field.

Georgetown Eastview 1-1

Lanier earned a hard-fought draw against 2015 State Semifinalist Georgetown Eastview today. Shelove Dorsainvil scored his fourth of the season and Edgar Mejia provided another assist to give Lanier the lead early in the 2nd half. Jorge Nava was outstanding at Goalkeeper but could not keep out a screamer from 30 yards as Eastview grabbed an equalizer with 20 minutes left. Great team performance – next game is 4 pm tomorrow at Georgetown HS.

Burnet 11-1

Boys Soccer opened the season against Burnet High School in the Georgetown Governor’s Cup. Lanier ran riot in the first half, with Luis Lopez scoring the first goal of 2018 just 40 seconds into the match getting on the end of a ball fed in by John Palma. The Vikings scored 8 more times in the first half to take a 9-1 lead into half time. Lanier kept a clean sheet in the 2nd half while adding two more goals to come away with a lopsided 11-1 victory at full-time.

 Shelove Dorsainvil came off the bench to score a first half hat-trick in 15 minutes. Edgar Mejia scored two and picked up three assists. Manny Reyes and Rodrigo Suarez both impressed on their Varsity debuts contributing an assist and a goal respectively. At the other end of the pitch, Michael Varela anchored the back line with Agustin Ugarte and Chris Torres in front of confident Goalkeepers Jorge Nava and Edwin Arteaga.
