NOBLE – An outstanding defensive outing and a goal by Isaac Cruz lifted the Ada Cougars to a 1-0 season-opening soccer victory over the Noble Bears Friday night.
“We played very hard and with great confidence,” said Ada head coach Cole Jones. “I have challenged this group in practice over the past few days, and I am very proud of how they reacted.”
Strong center midfield play by Coleman Prince and Salvador Vallin played a key role, according to Jones.
“They had to defend most of the field as we switched up our formation for this game,” Jones said.
Jones also praised his defensive line in Isaiah Castaneda, Eli Alvarez, Dominick Lowry and Philip Jones.
“All played very well and made it hard for Noble to get anything through,” said Cole Jones. “Jagger Pedigo created a spark as he came off the bench as an outside midfielder.”
