Soccer Roundup: Jordan advances to regional tournament; Seven Lakes, Tompkins seasons end in regional quarterfinals

Posted

Jordan doesn’t care that they are in their first varsity season.

The Warriors finished second in the District 19-5A standings, but are the last remaining team in the playoffs from the district heading into the regional semifinals.

Jordan came away with a 3-1 win over Pflugerville Weiss on Friday to stamp their spot in the regional tourney and keeping their season going.

Hani Taan led the way for the Warriors with two goals while Nico Flores added another. Cole Vernon had two assists on the night while and Marcelo Ojeda had one.

Jordan will play Richmond Foster at 6 p.m. on Friday in the regional semifinals, with the winner advancing to the regional finals at 1 p.m. Saturday.

Seven Lakes battles but falls in penalties

Seven Lakes did everything in their power to advance past undefeated and state ranked Ridge Point on Friday.

Despite going a man down and losing their starting goalie within 10 minutes of starting the game, the Spartans took the game to extra time and to penalties, battling and doing everything to keep their season alive.

But in the end, Ridge Point came away with a 5-4 penalty win, after the game ended at 0-0 at full time.

The Spartans end the season with a 16-3-2 record and as district champs in an extremely successful year. They will bring back a number of players next season and the expectations within the program are high.

Tompkins falls to Stratford

Tompkins twice battled back from a two goal deficit, but it wasn’t enough against Stratford in the regional quarterfinals, as the Falcons season came to an end with a 3-2 loss.

Stratford took a two goal lead in the first half, but Tompkins scored on a Daniela Sanchez Prado goal with an assist from Valentina Gianinetto to trim the lead to one at halftime.

Stratford scored again in the second half before Tompkins came back to trim the deficit with a goal from Sydney Nork off an assist by Gabriela Rodriguez in the 69th minute. Tompkins nearly tied things in the 77th minute, but the Stratford defense stepped up with a save and a deflected shot out of bounds and Tompkins wasn’t able to get another chance.

The Falcons end the year with a 13-4-5 record and a second place finish in district.
