Prep Roundup: Carson High boys soccer shuts out Manogue
Despite missing three starters, Carson High put on one of its most dominant performances of the season Saturday afternoon.
The first-place Senators outshot Bishop Manogue, 25-1, en route to a 2-0 victory in a Sierra League boys soccer match.
Carson, depending on the outcome of the Wooster match, holds at least a 3-point lead with just three regular-season matches remaining (Damonte, Wooster and Douglas).
“We got a little frustrated and their goalie is really good,” Carson coach Frank Martinez said. “I knew if we kept at it, we’d eventually put one in.”
Probably the most frustrated player was forward Angel Gonzalez, who had five shots on goal in the first 30 minutes. A couple were at point-blank range, but he was off the mark. Three of the misses came in a 5-minute span in the opening half.
“Angel probably had four or five that he would normally make,” Martinez said. “It just wasn’t his day.”
Bishop Manogue’s only shot on goal came on a direct free kick in the 19th minute that glanced off the crossbar above keeper Jose Rodriguez, who played just the first half. Sophomore Leonardo Barajas played the entire second half.
The Senators finally got on the board in the 36th minute when Isael Lopez rifled a shot that the Manogue keeper appeared to have tipped. The ball hit the crossbar and dropped behind the line. Carson had a couple of more opportunities in the final three minutes, but was unable to convert.
Junior striker David Gonzalez scored in the 70th minute to make it 2-0. It was his first score of the season. Carson had only one shot on goal the rest of the game.
The defensive group led by Christian Martinez, Osvaldo Gomez, Guillermo Perez and Raul Lopez played well.
Another impressive thing about the win was that the Senators were missing Efren Ramirez (red card vs. Galena), Jose Loera and Cesar Medina.
