Carson boys rebound from loss
RENO — Oscar Ventura scored with five minutes left to snap a 1-all tie and give Carson a 2-1 win over North Valleys Saturday afternoon in a Division 1 crossover match.
Carson improved to 5-2 in league play, and will host rival Douglas Wednesday at 7 p.m.
“After the Wooster loss, the kids were determined to rebound from that game,” coach Mehdi Samii said. “We played an excellent possession and pressure game. I can’t single anybody out because all the kids played with great heart. This was a thrilling and well-deserved win.”
North Valleys took a 1-0 lead in the closing minutes of the first, but Carson managed to tie the game in the 58th minute when Cristian Hernandez was puled down in the penalty box and converted the kick. The score remained tied until around the 75th minute when Ventura, after a scramble in front of the net on a free kick, beat the NV keeper for the game-winning score.
JV: Carson topped North Valleys 4-1 on goals by Peter Garrett, Jaime Saldana, Robert Gonzalez-Altamirano and Eric Avila.
