FAIRFIELD — There wasn’t a tie this time around.

The last time the Armijo and Rodriguez high girls soccer teams played March 20, the game wound up in a 1-1 tie. This time around, the Indians shut out the Mustangs in a 3-0 Monticello Empire League victory at Ed Hopkins Memorial Stadium, Tuesday.

Each goal for Armijo (9-4-2, 5-3-2 MEL) came on a one-on-one break away with a Rodriguez (4-8-7, 2-5-3 MEL) keeper misplaying the ball, leaving an easy open net for the visitors.

“(Rodriguez) has a great defense,” Indians coach Brad Burzynski said. “We weren’t going to score with long shots from far away, so what we did was create one-on-one matchups and that worked for us today.”

It took Armijo only 12 minutes to find the net as senior Monique Evans went on a break away. When Rodriguez’ keeper Sarah Free came out, Evans went left, leaving Free behind her and kicked it in for an easy goal.

Aly Bowers scored in the 38th for the Indians, while Evans scored in the 50th, almost identically to how she scored in the first half.

On a break away, Evans approached the goal and as Nikki Castro came out for the Mustangs, Evans went right and put it in the back of the net.

“When you don’t capitalize and the other team does, that makes it challenging,” Mustangs coach Josh Levine said. “There were chances where we outplayed them, but there were moments where they outplayed us and were a little better. Had we finished some of those chances, it might have turned the game around.”

Rodriguez had four shots on goal in the game, with the closest coming from Natalie Neal in the first half. She was lined up for a penalty kick from 35 yards out, kicked it to the right of the net but Indians keeper Taylor Morris was there with the diving save. Another close chance for the Mustangs was in the 47th minute. Neal was 15 yards away and missed the goal to the left by a couple of feet.

“The girls came in and were competitive,” said Burzynski. “We played 80 minutes better than (Rodriguez) did. Tonight, we played harder.”

The Mustangs host last place Will C. Wood, while Armijo travels to Napa, Thursday.

    I'm not a parent of any of the players, nor do I represent an expert in the field of soccer. I'm just a parent to my son, a Rodriguez student who had asked to go and support his high school girls soccer team. What I witnessed was a disappointing 3-0 loss by a frustrated group of Rodriguez athletes. The girls competed gallantly, but obviously were not given the chance to compete to win. Ironically the teams MEL record (2-5-3)was identical to the formation being played. Sadly a formation of this type can be detrimental to scoring as well as allowing the opponent break away scoring opportunities. I don't blame the girls, they played their hearts out. As a matter of fact they appeared to play their best when the subs came in - although, I don't understand why the subs were not the starters. “When you don’t capitalize and the other team does, that makes it challenging,” Mustangs coach Josh Levine said. “There were chances where we outplayed them, but there were moments where they outplayed us and were a little better. Had we finished some of those chances, it might have turned the game around.” That quote by the Rodriguez coach is utterly ridiculous. Was coach Levine even at this game? At no point in the match did Rodriguez outplay Armijo; I further contend that it was poor coaching, untimely substitutions and an inferior starting lineup that resulted in the outcome. I don't know what happened to a promising team that started 3-0-3 that has since gone 1-8-4, but if I had to make an educated guess I can sum it up in 2 words, Josh Levine.
