Junior Jesus Galindo-Sanchez kicked a ball that went over the heads of Victory Christian’s defense. As soon as he had the chance, sophomore starter B.J. Askew calmly finished it around the keeper, into the bottom right part of the goal.
Askew scored once more in the first half, securing a 2-1 win for the Cavs against the Panthers on Sept. 22 at Cherry Island Soccer Complex in Antelope, Calif.
Although the Cavs were strong on defense, no other Cav scored.
The Cavs constantly put pressure on Victory, attempting six to eight goals.
Although the Cavs dominated the first half, Victory controlled the game for the majority of the second, resulting in one Victory goal.
For the next game, junior Adam Dean said that the Cavs need to work on their “first touch,” the initial trapping of the ball.
“We give the ball back to the opposition as soon as we get it,” Dean said.
The boys’ next game will be on Tuesday, Sept. 29, against Faith Christian (5-3).
