Boys Soccer beat LBJ 3-2 on Saturday morning as Luis Lopez grabbed the winner with only 2 minutes left on the clock. Andy Madrid played the through ball to set up Luis's goal, returning the favor for his own two goals, both set up by Luis in the first half. JVA and JVB both won their matches against LBJ, 2-1 and 4-2, to complete a 3 game sweep of the Jags. 

The Vikings were cruising, up 2-0 at the half and well in control. An early wobble in the 2nd half allowed LBJ back into the game, but with Lanier still leading 2-1, LBJ had a player sent off for a bad slide tackle on Juancarlos Hernandez. Lanier squandered several chances to put the game away, the clearest opportunity fell to Ricky Hernandez who pounced on a rebound after Rodrigo Suarez's free kick was too hot for the goalkeeper to handle. Ricky and Josue Montalvan were both on the scene to help the ball another 2 yards over the line, but Ricky's tap in was somehow parried wide by the recovering Jaguar keeper.

Lanier was prepared to settle for 2-1 when LBJ appeared to snatch a tie, scoring on a counter attack with just 5 minutes remaining. The Jaguars may have drawn too much encouragement from their 2 goal comeback. As they continued to pour forward seeking a winner, they themselves were caught on the break as Michael Varela won back possession deep in his own half and then started the move that Luis finished in a breakaway against the keeper.

The result keeps Lanier at the top of the table, tied with Dripping Springs on 12 points. The next game is Wednesday night, 7:45 pm at Nelson Field against 3rd place Lockhart. You can see the goals on hudl-linked below-
