Cowboys shut out Huskies 2-0

Christian Hernandez and Diego Nunez score first-half goals in road win over Sweet Home


The Crook County Cowboys scored two first-half goals, then held on to take a 2-0 shut-out win over the Sweet Home Huskies in non-league soccer action.

“I told the kids that you are a little younger than the teams you are playing,” Crook County Head Coach Joel Carrillo said. “But you have to prepare for the big games. I’m so happy right now and they know that they can beat somebody with more experience.”

The visiting Cowboys scored their first goal 10 minutes into the contest, when Leonhard Pusl took control of the ball on the defensive end of the field, passed the ball up the field to Diego Nunez, who hit Christian Hernandez with a perfect pass. Hernandez slipped the ball past Sweet Home’s goalkeeper and the Cowboys had a 1-0 lead.

Nunez scored a goal of his own late in the first half as the Cowboys extended their lead.

Although Crook County didn’t score again, Carrillo was pleased with the teams’ effort.

“We spent the time passing the ball and keeping the ball away from the other team to practice,” he said. “I’m so happy that they are having a good time and learning.”

Carrillo added that he was also pleased with the effort of the Crook County JV?squad. Crook County goalkeeper Christian Nunez had said that he wanted to play in the field. He got his chance on Saturday as he played half of the JV contest and scored the first goal of his career as the Cowboys won the JV contest 9-0.

“They played really well,” Carrillo said. “The team is looking good for next year.”

With the varsity win the Cowboys raised their record to 5-3-1 while the Huskies fell to 1-7 on the year.

Crook County is back in action today when they host Mountain View. The Cowboys are home again on Thursday when they take on the Bend Lava Bears. Both matches are scheduled for 4:30 p.m.
