A Stab from the Past
Kathy and I attended a Tuesday night high school soccer game at Harry B. Orem stadium, a venue where we had spent many hours in years past. The eighth-ranked Mules were hosting Boerne, the top-ranked team in the San Antonio area, in an important district match.
Guess who? The Heights keeper and a teammate clear the ball from a Boerne corner kick.
A clearing header as an attacker crashes the party.
But ref, I got all ball!
Change of direction.
Strong defending in the air.
The Heights' keeper sacrifices his body to punch the ball clear.
Not a contact sport?
Sprinting for the ball.
Heading the ball towards goal - several Heights' attacks in the last five minutes almost broke the scoreless draw.
A helping hand as the game ends.
The 0-0 tie leaves Alamo Heights in first place, a half game ahead of Boerne, after the first complete round of district competition.
