The varsity soccer team gained their first win of the season on Tuesday, Jan. 12, taking home a 3-0 victory over Wimberley.

Despite three losses and two ties, the team has had a rewarding season so far. With only a few returing players, head coach Brian Ormonde said it is almost like DSHS is starting out with a whole new team.

“There’s been a big change in the coach because I coached the girls last year,” he said. “But the guys are adapting pretty well. It’s still an inexperienced team because there aren’t many returning varsity players.”

Junior defender Pedro Casanova said it was good to finally take home a win.

“I was extremely hyped when we won,” Casanova said.

With Wimberley’s varsity soccer team vastly improving this year, there was a bit of competition for the Tigers.

“I was happy we didn’t get scored on,” said Coach Brian Ormonde. “We have a great defense this year and we have a lot of young kids this year and they played really well”

Ormonde said Casanova scored one particularly impressive goal, kicking the ball from 35 yards or so away.

“Pedro is always very unselfish and passes the ball,” Ormonde said. “And I told him before the game ‘just shoot the ball’ and he went out there and right away he took a nice shot.”

With any more upcoming games and tournaments there is still time to go out and watch the Tigers win!

“3-0 is a good win in soccer,” Ormonde said. “Most games are 1-0 or so”
