Lions beat North Lamar 3-1; Lady Lions wrap up district title


GREENVILLE — Greenville 3,

North Lamar 1

  Greenville’s Lions squared their District 19-4A soccer record at 4-4 with a 3-1 victory over North Lamar on Friday night at T.A. “Cotton” Ford Stadium.

  Miguel Sanchez booted in two penalty kicks and assisted on another goal as the Lions improved to 8-11-1 for the season.

  Miguel Sanchez set up Sergio Sanchez with the game’s first goal about four minutes into the contest. Sergio’s goal found the right side of the net.

  Miguel Sanchez made it 2-0 before halftime, scoring on a penalty kick.

  Tyler Henderson cut the Lions’ lead to 2-1 when he scored an unassisted goal for North Lamar.

  Miguel Sanchez nailed down the victory with about 1:55 remaining on his penalty kick after Mario Bueso of Greenville was taken down near the goal, drawing a red card for a North Lamar defender.

  “The effort was definitely there,” said Lions coach Bert Green. “We need to continue to clean up mistakes.”

  Green said North Lamar’s goal happened on a communication breakdown.

  The Lions’ intensity level stayed high through the end of the match.

  “They work hard every day,” said Green.

  The Lions will get a break for spring break before resuming District 19-4A play at home on March 20 against Princeton.
