Cowboys defeat Hawks

Crook County erases a two-goal deficit to take a 5-3 win over La Pine


The Crook County Cowboys erased an early deficit to take a 5-3 victory over the La Pine Hawks in Tuesday afternoon, non-Diego Nunezleague, soccer action.

“They were thinking that last year they beat the team very easy and they think that they would do it again so they were not prepared,” said Crook County Head Coach Joel Carrillo about his team’s performance early in the game. “They learned from the experience that teams aren’t easy. I’m so happy that they learned the experience to try hard at the first of the game.”

La Pine opened the scoring on a free kick from just outside the penalty area. After the early goal, the Crook County defense stiffened. The Cowboys finally tied the game midway through the first half on a goal by Diego Nunez. However, La Pine responded with another goal to retake the lead. Zane Abrams scored again for the Cowboys late in the first half to tie the game a second time.

The late goal gave the Cowboys momentum going into the second half. The Cowboys took advantage, and the second half was all Crook County as the Cowboys outscored the host Hawks Zane Abrams3-1 with Nunez, Abrams, and Byran Martinez each scoring goals in the half.

“It was a good match,” Carrillo said. “A really good match. We won and now we need to get ready for our next game.”

With the victory, the Cowboys moved their record to 2-1 while the Hawks fell to 0-3 on the season.

The Cowboys opened the Intermountain Hybrid season on Thursday with a road game against the Mountain View Cougars. The team is on the road again on Tuesday when they take on the Bend Lava Bears in a 3 p.m. contest.
