Moose sprint to postseason


ALAMOSA — The Alamosa Mean Moose Varsity Boy’s Soccer Team continues to stay undefeated (4-0) in the league with a record of 7-1 overall.  Saturday the Mean Moose dominated Bayfield 7-0 in a conference game on the road, exhibiting both strong offense and defense in true collaborative playing.

The Moose defense has allowed only three points in eight games, achieving a shutout for the first four games.  On offense, the Moose have racked up 33 points to 3 against worthy opponents.

The Moose’s only loss was in a non-conference game against Salida, which slipped by Alamosa 1-0.

Two days later, the Mean Moose rebounded with a 6-1 win in a home game against Dolores Huerta Preparatory High School.

The first goal against Dolores came 15 minutes in from a corner kick.  Aiden McComas had two assists with Isai Lemus netting two goals, first after the ball almost soared out of bounds and next after the ball slipped from Dolores’s tender.  Alex Antonio-Esteban shot successfully, Dolores’s goalie diving but missing with 19 minutes left in the first half.  In the second half, Lemus scored with 35 minutes remaining, followed by Benjamin Tailleur who pulled a move to sneak in a score.  Dolores pulled their only goal with about 4 minutes remaining.

The Moose drove the final coffin nail with less than three minutes left, Will Lipke passed in, with Jonathan Serrato driving the ball into the goal leading the Moose to a 6-1 win.

Alamosa’s final regular-season game will take place on Saturday 4/17 when they look to sweep the league series with the Montezuma-Cortez Panthers, kick-off is slated for 12 p.m. The first meeting between the Intermountain League rivals on April 3 ended in a 2-1 victory for Alamosa.
