Hat trick lifts Cougars past Thy
Vince Bueno nails three goals to move Canyon one game closer to district playoff berth
By THOMAS GODLEY
Staring at a 1-0 deficit early in the game. Canyon Coach Danny Bueno knew the Cougars' playoff chances were in jeopardy.
Kerville Tivy was not the kind of team that gives up points easily.
"Just a few weeks ago they shut out Alamo Heights and took New Braunfels to the fourth quarter before giving up a goal.” Bueno said. "Those arc two good offensive teams, so I was leery when they scored first. We respect their defense."
His fears faded as the Cougars took control in the next ten minutes, scoring two goals before halftime and ultimately posting a critical 4-1 win
on the mad Friday.
Vince Bueno scored three goals for his thin! hat trick and 23a1 goal this season.
The win gives Canyon (6-4, 9-6-2) a clear shot at the playoff. They stand in third place behind New Braunfels (16-2,10-0) and Alamo Heights (12-3-3, 6-2-2). With a win Tuesday night against the Schertz Clemens Buffaloes, Canyon can clinch a playoff spot.
"That will be a big game at home for us," Bueno said. "If the fans can get out there and cheer us on, it will be a good way for us to end our last game at home."
The outlook was not so bright early on when Tivy’s Jeremy Steinruck followed through on a fake kick and nailed the ball past goalie Rugger Gottsacker.
The trickery came off a comer kick that was not unfamiliar to the Cougars.
"They pulled that play last time we played them, and I should have had the kids ready for it," Coach Bueno said.
The point proved to Vince Bueno be a nonfactor when,
moments later,Vince Bueno manuevered past defenders and was taken down in the box. Canyon was right back in the game with a goal on a penalty kick that locked it at 1-1.
Bueno was not finished. Shortly before halftime he broke through the defense again and put
a shot into the right side of the net, and Canyon was on its way.
Bryan Yuras, a defensive specialist, showed he could add to the offense, passing to Curtis Arens, who dribbled through two Tivy defenders and placed a solid shot in the far right side of the goal.
Bueno, who came out of the game with ten minutes remaining, finished the scoring with his third goal for the hat trick.
"Vince had a good game, but it was the entire team's unselfish play and ability to get the ball to the open player that gave us the win," Coach Bueno said.
"This has to be one of the better games we've played this season. All the kids stepped it up collectively."
