Magical Soccer Season Comes to an End at Regional Tournament

The best season in program history for the Frenship boys soccer team came to an end in the regional semifinals last Friday in a 1-0 loss to McKinney Boyd.

Early in the second half, Boyd junior David Ortiz made a nice pass to Roberto Gonzalez-Gutierrez who found the net from 12 yards out for the game’s only goal. FHS pressed hard to tie the game late but couldn’t find the back of the net.

The record-breaking season for the Tigers ends with a final record of 25-3 and included the program’s first ever district championship and playoff wins – three of them.

“It’s been nothing but an absolute pleasure to be a part of FHS this year, and I’m glad I could bring my experience and apply it with a group of outstanding young athletes,” said FHS head coach Scott Smith.

“I’m a bit sad tonight due to the manner in which the game unfolded because I believe our soccer players are worthy of competing in the state tournament. They are because this special thing about FHS is the way the kids listen and behave. It makes a world of difference and I’ve loved every minute of being here.”
