Bliss 3, Gooding 0
Armando Cordoba scored twice, once on a penalty kick, while Steven Rubio added a third for the Bears in its shutout victory.
“The first half ended 0-0, but Bliss maintained possession the majority of the half,” said Bliss coach Dustin Henkelmann. “(Bliss) created many chances, but had a hard time finishing. Gooding’s goalie had an excellent first half. Despite that, Bliss executed the best passing game they’ve had all season.”
Added Henkelmann: “Bliss came out swinging in the second half. Armando Cordoba (Junior) took a shot that took a deflection off of a Gooding defender. Not long after Steven Rubio (sophomore) scored on a PK; and Armando Cordoba netted the third and final goal.
Despite the lower score that Bliss isn’t used to, this was one of the best games that I’ve seen Bliss play. Their chemistry on the field was solid, and their passing game was of a much higher caliber than usual. I’m very proud of my boys.”
