The Hobbton Wildcats’ soccer team got by the Lakewood Leopards in Wednesday’s soccer action, 3-2.

Wildcat coach Bryan Martinez said, “It wasn’t the best game we have played. We didn’t do as well as we should have. We weren’t on top of our game, and lowered ourselves to the game of the opponent. We played lazy. The lack of communication really hurt us. It was a win but we didn’t win like we should have.”

Hobbton’s Daniel Villagomez scored one goal and Eber Gomez scored two.

For the Leopards, Jonathan Gonzalez scored 1 goal, and Sadi Zabala gained a score for the Leopards.

On the other side of the field, Lakewood’s head coach said the game was a heartbreaker and really felt pleased with the way the Leopards played.

“This was one of the best games as a coach I have ever been a part of. It was almost heartbreaking to walk away from this game, because I really felt like the (Lakewood) boys deserved this. Hobbton would get a point, then we’d return, and it went back and forth until Hobbton got a penalty kick. I’m always proud of the team. They really gave it all they had,”Coach Faircloth asserted.

Lakewood is now 2-5-1 overall, and 2-4 in the conference and they travel to Spring Creek next Monday. The Wildcats play again Monday hosting the Rosewood Eagles.
