After a fun-filled day of competition against Alumni in the New Year, AHS Soccer is in full swing! The Boys program has four teams for this year and all jv teams have held there own in scrimmages and each side opened district play with ties. Varsity tied defending Region III champions Houston Lee (2-2) at home while also doing well in other scrimmages. Boys varsity won their first game (3-2) over Clear Creek last Monday before dropping their first district game to Dawson (1-3) this past Friday. After a bye on Tuesday, the 'Bhoys' returned to the field very hungry at home. After a hard fought match, the Jackets walked away with a shutout (1-0) to end Sam Rayburn's 2 game unbeaten streak. The 'Bhoys' now await Pasadena Memorial with a 1-1 record. Awards for this 2014 AHS Boys Varsity Soccer Team.

Well, it was an amazing season! Despite the uncertainty that comes with being in a new district (considered the two best for Boys Soccer in all of Region 3) we started off with great excitement and success. Although we accumulated 10 wins this year, to equal that of last year’s feat, many of them were not in district. Injuries continued to mount forus as the season progressed and 22-5A opponents are too strong to play when you are not at full strength. With Christian Gallegos receiving a scholarship and chosen with Blane Nauck on First Team All-District . . . Nefis Silva & Emanuel Becerra also being looked at for soccer scholarships and joining Hayden on Second Team All-District . . . AND Ricardo Esparza and Zac Gonzalez receiving Honorable Mention, we received many individual honors. But as a team tied for fifth place, we only watched as two of our rivals advanced deep into the playoffs. But next year is going to be a different story. As we watch 17 Seniors leave this year, we have 18 soon-to-be Seniors for next year. This group compiled an impressive 16-3-2record while winning a tournament, as well. The bar is not being lowered but raised yet again! The ‘Bhoys’ have been great at assisting the AHS campus, Alvin Youth Soccer, and the rest of the Alvin area all year. They will continue to work hard in serving others, as well as, preparing for next season.
Jacket Pride Never Dies!

AHS Boys Soccer completed an Alvin ISD district sweep over Pasadena ISD this week-end. AHS Boys beat a great Memorial side 2-1 and AHS Girls hammered out a decisive 3-1 over Memorial which gave them sole possession of 1st place. Manvel Boys topped South Houston 2-1 and Manvel Girls taking care of SOHO's ladies 3-0. It has been a great 24 hours for AISD Soccer! With just seconds left in the first half, Senior #9 Emanuel Becerra finally pierced Memorial's net with a great assist by Junior #37 Zac Gonzalez. It was Becerra's 16th goal of the season. In the 55th minute, Christian Gallegos (current Houston Chronicle 'Player of the Week') scored to advance the Jackets 2-0. Nick Gonzalez played a perfect game until the Memorial Mavericks found the back of the net in the final minute of the game. Also, Boys JV orange played Memorial's JV in a battle for the best JV side and tied 0-0. Saturday (2/23) marked the end of the halfway mark in 22-5A action.As Rayburn and Alvin fight for a playoff berth, not a wholelot of ground was covered the following Tuesday night (2/26) in Pasadena. Alvin struck first (18thminute) with a goal by #9 Emanuel Becerra followed by another one from #7Christian Gallegos off a pass from Ricardo Esparza 2 minutes later. And yet a third Alvin goal, just minutes later, would be retracted from an off-sides call. Then things were quiet until the final 3 minutes of the first half. Rayburn would score back-to-back goals before Anthony Ibarrola placed Alvin up3-2 seconds before half-time. In the second half, Rayburn scored in the 50th minute to even things up. Rayburn would resist a lot of pressure and even survived facing a penalty kick when a very flagrant foul inside the box was ignored with just minutes remaining. After full time expired, the two teams went into penalty kicks. #17 Nefis Silva, #22 Blane Nauck, #9 Emanuel Becerra, and #18 Jorge Trevino all scored but Alvin still fell 4-5 in the shoot-out. However, the "Bhoys' won 5-4 in a shoot-out with Manvel 3 days later (3/1). After tied 2-2 (goals by #22 Blane Nauck and #9 Emanuel Becerra / Assists by C- #8 Anthony Ibarrola), A.Ibarrola, E. Becerra, B. Nauck, R. Esparza, J. Trevino would all score penalty kicks while #0 Nick Gonzalez had 1 save to edge Manvel 5-4.
AHS Boys Varsity Soccer hosted state powerhouse Dobie Tuesday evening (2/12/13) and started of to a slow start that allowed the visiting Longhorns to notch some quick goals. But the Bhoys fought back with goals from #22 Blane Nauck and #9 Emanuel Beccera (2). But despite the 3 goals scored on Dobie (the most by any district opponent) the 'other' burnt orange pressed on with a 7-3 victory. Friday (2/15/13) night witnessed a similar situation unfolded at Pasadena's Veterans Stadium. However, the Yellowjackets (down 1-4 at halftime) rallied back to claim victory with 4 second half goals courtesy of Captain #7 Christian Gallegos (2), #22 Blane Nuack, #9 Emanuel Becerra, and Captain #8 Anthony Ibarolla. Assists from Nauck and Gallegos place them as the first and second assists leaders (respectively) and Emanuel's goal is his 14th of the season. JV Orange won 5-1 and expanded their wins coloumn to 11 with just one loss. In district they are currently 4-1. Tuesday night, Boys Varsity took a 1-0 first half lead (courtesy of #9 Emanuel Beccerra, assisted by Anthony Ibarrola) but watched Pasadena comeback with a second goal late in the game to even prevent a shoot-out. The 1-2 loss was eerily similar to opening night at home against Rayburn. JV was the opposite starting off unusually sluggish. Down 0-2 in the first 10 minutes, they tied it up before halftime but the score would remain 2-2 at the close of the game.
After an 8 hour bus ride to Ft. Worth on Thursday January 24th, AHS Boys Varsity Soccer stepped out of the bus ready for business! Facing the host school in the 2013 Boswell-Saginaw X-Town Shootout, the Yellowjackets brought a game to former AHS Boys Soccer Coach James McCarry's squad. Seldom losing at home, mighty Boswell came up short 4-1 to Alvin. Bringing the ‘sting’ was #9 Emanuel Becerra with 2 goals and an assist, Captain #7 Christian Gallegos with a goal and an assist, and #8 Anthony Ibarrola with an assist. Hayden Basiliere had many saves and posted a shut out in the 1sthalf while Nick Gonzalez filled in well in the 2nd half. From this match the tone was set for the remainder of the tournament. Decatur would fall the next day 4-0 (Captain #7 Christian Gallegos 2 goals before leaving game with an injury, #9 Emanuel Becerra with a goal and an assist, and #22 Blane Nauck & #17 Nefis Silva both with an assist) before Dunbar was also shutout by the Jackets (goals by #22 Blane Nauck (2), #18 Jorge Trevino (2), #37 Zac Gonzalez with a hat trick (3) and #19 Ricardo Esparza with several assists) setting up the Championship with Lake Dallas. Ultimately, Alvin triumph 5-1 on a close final (Goals - #22 Blane Nauck, Captain #8 Anthony Ibarrola (3), and #32 Julian Arias). Needless to say, the route home Sunday (1-27) was much quicker with celebrating the victory and holding the trophy. Two days (1-29) later the Boys faced former 24-5A foe Clear Brook. After a halftime lead of 2-0, the Jackets actually had to battle back to tie up the match 4-4 (goals- #11 Pedro Lara, #22 Blane Nauck, #19 Ricardo Esparza, and Captain #8 Anthony Ibarrola) in the closing minutes. In the resulting shoot out to break the tie, Alvin outlasted Brook 7-6 with #19 Ricardo Esparza making the clinching goal. Three days later, on Friday (February 1st) the boys opened up district play with 22-5A opponent Sam Rayburn. On a night that would see all Pasadena schools prevail, the tired (and still without #7 Captain Christian Gallegos) Alvin side scored first with a header from #8 Captain off of a throw-in by #22 Blane Nauck. However, Rayburn would answer a couple of minutes before the half before scoring the go-ahead goal with about 30 minutes left. But Tuesday Alvin would travel to Manvel to best their inner district rival 3-1 (Goals by #9 EmanuelBecerra (1) and #11 Pedro Lara (2) & assists by #22 Blane Nauck, #10 Ivan Torres, and #37 Zack Gonzalez). Alvin encountered Pearland on Friday (2/8) and despite a barrage of shots, they experienced their first shut-out as they came up short 0-1. Boys JV maintained their unbeaten streak in district and overall season reaching double digits in the win column with a 10-0-0 record. Varsity is now 8-4-1 facing Dobie at home on Tuesday Feb 12th.
JV Boys had the best results of the 4 tournaments AHS Soccer was involved in over the week-end. As the older boys recovered, the Lady Jackets returned from Lufkin, and their JV gained success and momentum, the JV 'Bhoys" are still relishing a decisive victory in the final of the Santa Fe JV tournament. Along the way they kept a perfect record and accumulated 19 goals and only allowed 3 despite missing their starting keeper due to injury. Game stats include 2 separate hat tricks for Junior Jorge Aguilar and a hat trick for Junior Ramiro Reyes. Sophomore Laureano Garcia and Junior Luis Garcia each scored a pair, as well as, Freshmen Pedro Carrazco and Gustavo Atrian.
AHS Boys Varsity played Seven Lakes (Katy) Thursday (1/17) in Pearland as part of the Pasadena ISD Cup. Who's Seven Lakes? Well, last year alone their girls were in the state final last year and lost the shoot-out that determined Texas 5A State Champions and their boys lost the shoot-out that determined the state's Region III representative (the team that won the shoot-out lost in a shoot-out for state champions). Seven Lakes played well in the first half but so did we (probably slightly better) and it was 0-0 at the half. They scored 2 goals in the first 5 minutes after half-time but then we really took it to them but somehow only managed 1 goal (they have great keeper) courtesy of #17 Ricardo Esparza. They were lucky it was 1-2. Unfortunately, in the last few minutes, it ended up 1-3. Alvin was without captainand current lead scorer #7 Christian Gallegos due to injury.
Other injures left a depleted Boys Varsity squad to battle Channelview (1/18) in Pasadena. Despite missing a few key players, Alvin still managed a decisive 5-0 win over Channelview in the Pasadena ISD Cup First half goals against Channelview came courtesy of #18 Jorge Trevino, #22 Blane Nauck, and #9 Emanuel Becerra. Second half goals were scored by #8 Anthony Ibarolla and Becerra.
Day three (1/19) of the PISD tournament allowed some starters to return to the Alvin side. Although a powerhouse in high school soccer, Westfield was outplayed by Alvin. Unfortunately, the score did not reflect that as the survived a barrage of shots that were deflected of their goal posts. In the end, Westfield held on to their2-1 lead. Alvin’s lone goal was #17 Ricardo Esparza, saving AHS from being shut-out. In fact, Alvin has scored in all their games and scrimmages in 2013.
Well, the Bhoys opened up the 2013 season with a scrimmage at home against Angleton (1/4). The match was tied 0-0 until Alvin put in 3 goals in the last 20 minutes. Junior Blane Nauck (#22) scored 2 goals with Junior Pedro Lara (#11) adding another.
The following day (1/5) they played an outstanding young alum side in our annual Alumni Scrimmage and bested the recent grads 4-0 with goals coming from Junior Zac Gonzalez (#37), Senior Ricardo Esparza (#17)Senior/Captain Anthony Ibarrola (#8) and Pedro Lara. Goal keepers, Senior Nick Gonzalez and Senior Hayden Basiliere, mended the nets with these two shutouts. JV Boys Alumni games were played against 'old Alumni'. A few noteworthy goals were from current JV coach Kyle Ketter (Class of 1999) and Varsity coach Shawn Ruby(Class of 1994) with others from Rogelio 'Chivas' Ortega (Class of 2001). Boys had 37 Alums comprising two teams and the girls fielded a single team of alums. Jose Lopez (Class of 2011), currently in the Navy, flew in from Hawaii for the 2nd year in-a-row just to play in the scrimmage. Next year we look forward to having many more former AHS Soccer alumni present.
With our 3rd competition in 5 days, the boys were a little flat against Houston Lee on Tuesday (1/8). Down 1-2 with less than 20 minutes left, Houston added 2 more goals as we were out of gas. Alvin's lone goal came off the boot of Senior Emanuel Becerra (AHS' leading scorer last season).
Our batteries were recharge in time for Friday night's opening game (1/11) against Santa Fe. Senior/Captain Christian Gallegos (#7) and Blane Nauck (#22) added a pair of goals while Emanuel Becerra (#9) had the other one.
Last night AHS Boys Soccer thumped our old rival Clear Creek. Again the Jackets scored lightening fast with the first goal coming from Captain Christian Gallegos in less than 4 minutes. The score would hold for most of the first half until Senior Captain Anthony Ibarrola scored with Ricardo Esparza also finding the net just before time expired in the first half. In many ways the second half mirrored the first half. Hayden Basiliere's shut-out was brilliant as continued with Nick Gonzalez between the posts. Emanuel Becerra scored in just 4 minutes after half-time before Christian and Anthony would net their second goals of the match. Julian Arias and Ivan Torres gave assists out of the back while Blane Nauck provided a pair of assists, as well. Final score Jackets 6-0 Creek. Coach Bass let the boys know this was the best result AHS Boys soccer has ever managed against a Creek school since he's been here (1996). The Jackets now have a 2-0-0 record for the young season. JVorange continued their unbeaten record edging past Creek 3-2. Girls play tonight in Lake Jackson against Brazoswood and the boys have a full bus following them.

Our first scrimmage was on January 3rd - the season is on! AHS JV white topped Manvel JV white 4-1 and AHS JV orange beat Manvel JV red 5-2. The Varsity teams tied 2-2.
Our inaugural Alumni game(s) were 5pm and 7pm on Saturday (1/7). They were a huge success with over 40 alum present and another 100+ family and fans in the stands! JV tied 1-1 and Varsity pulled away with a 4-1 win after a 0-0 halftime score.
Alvin opened their spot in the 2012 Friendswood Tourney drawing a 0-0 tie against our district defending champions Dickinson. The next day the Jackets faced Dobie (Ranked in ESPN / Powerade Fab 50 as 3rd in Texas and 4th in the US) with a loss followed by a rebound win against Dawson. Tourney result 1-1-1.
Our first game after the tourney brought AISD rivals Manvel at our house. This intense game was exciting to watch as our Jacket edged out the Mavericks for a 1-0 win.
Travelling to Angleton, our boys were not ready to play at the opening whistle and fell behind 2-0 in less than 2 minutes. But our Jackets battled back. Down 3-1 at halftime, Alvin walked away with 3-3.
After leading Atascosita at home for most of the game, the visitors tied the match just before halftime and then scored the go-ahead goal with about 5 minutes remaining.
Friday (January 27th) our jackets faced Elsik at home. Elsik is currently ranked 3rd in the US and 4th in Texas. Our Jackets took the challenge and with a lot of heart drew 1-1 before the 2nd half but Elsik managed to get in some quick goals to open up the score.
Tuesday (January 31st) not only closed out the month of January but also our non-district play. Brazosport visited Memorial Stadium and battled hard for a 0-0 tie. Our record before district begins is now 2-3-3 (with 2 of our three losses to the # 3 and #4 nationally ranked teams). Friday (2/3) our boys battled their first 24-5A opponent of the season.
Friday (February 3rd) our Bhoys opened 24-5A action in style with a solid 3-1 victory of rival Clear Brook. We are now 3-3-3 overall and 1-0-0 in district play. Also our 2012 Soccer Band made their debut and gave a spirited boost for our district premier. We love our AHS Soccer Band!
Tuesday the Bhoys traveled to Clear Springs. During the 1st half one of our defenders received a red card which dramatically affected the match. Ultimately we lost. However, every team that won last Friday, lost tonight (except for Clear Creek). The district is all knotted up early on.
Friday (February 10th) our Boys' provided some real goooood home cookin' despite being short-handed as Alvin topped Clear Lake 2-1. Tremendous contributions from everyone - except Soccer Band, we missed you! Viva Alvin Futbol!
Our Boys' had a tough week this time as they dropped a heartbreaker on Valentine's day in Dickinson after being tied 1-1 with less than 13 minutes. But persistent fouls by the Gators gave them an unfair advantage (as well as allowing a dog on the field!). Their luck didn't change at home on Friday (2/17) when our still-injured Jackets had Clear Brook visit. During the rain, the Wildcats benefitted from an undue penalty and some luck after we failed to capitalize on multiple 1st half opportunities. Boys JV was also edged out at the end of their Dickinson battle (2-1) near the end of play but blasted Clear Creek 4-1 (again the Wildcats received a penalty for their lone goal - everybody BUT Alvin seems gets these!)
Tuesday (February 21st) Alvin went ahead of the Bucs 1-0 in just 8 minutes of play. The lead would stand until Brazoswood tied it up around the 15th minute. The Bucs then took the lead (2-1) about 5 minutes later. However, our Yellowjackets tied the game at 2-2 with less than 20 seconds before half-time. The second half was fought hard with great chances for both sides. This only our first tie against a district opponent as the Bhoys do not like to settle for a tie.
Friday (February 24th) the Bhoys beat Pearland at home 2-0. Our first goal came at the 16th minute. the 1-0 lead lasted into the half. After the break Pearland came out playing well. It was a very intense second half with opportunities from both teams. However, we drove the nail in with just a minute and a half remaining. Viva Alvin Soccer!
Tuesday (February 28th) we travelled to Clear Brook and dropped a close one 2-0. They got a lucky goal and we had an own goal at the end of our match where we hit the crossbar several times.
However, Friday (March 2nd) we bounced back at home as we hosted district-leading Clear Springs and avenged an earlier defeat. Tied 0-0 at half time, the Yellow Jackets finished the match with 2 goals. It was a great game by our defense that posted their second straight shut-out at home. Extra school support came from our awesome Soccer Band! With 5 games left, Alvin still owns a play-off berth.
Wednesday (March 7) we hit the road to Clear Lake. An early Jacket goal around the 10th minutes mark proved to be all that there would be as the Bhoys collected another victory and another shutout.
Friday (March 9) game began despite surrounding bad weather. While looking good at Memorial stadium, the game was called at the 18th minute mark due to lightening strikes within a 10 mile radius. The match had to be rescheduled the following day (Sat March 10). At 10:00am the game restarted with a depleted Jacket roster due to SAT testing. The end of game scored ended in a 4-1 loss for our Bhoys.
Monday (March 12) the Jackets were back at full strength despite the start of Spring Break. The Bhoys connected for 3 goals in the first half and another in the second half to topple district leading Clear Creek 4-0.
Game day returned on Tuesday (March 20) as the Jackets hosted Brazoswood for our Senior Night. 2 goals in the first half was enough to provide another game winner for our Bhoys. A late PK call in the last 10 minutes prevented another defensive shutout for Alvin. However, the win sealed the deal for a playoff berth - the first since 2007 and the 5th in school history!
In sole possession of 2nd place, AHS Boys Soccer travels to Pearland Friday (March23) for the last match of the regular season. There is a lot of action taking place around the district as this last week will determine 2nd, 3th, 4th, and 5th place. Good Luck Bhoys!
Well, the Bhoys faced a determined Pearland side that broke from a 0-0 halftime into a 2-0 win. Pearland's win ties Alvin for 3rd place in the final 24-5A district standings.
Congratulations to Captain Jared Nauck for being selected to the Texas Association of Soccer Coaches' (TASCO) Senior Showcase. He will represent Alvin in Georgetown this May.
