4A-7 boys soccer: Mitchell takes charge of scoring

TRINITY — In a span of 10 minutes in the second half of the 4A-7 district final between Mitchell and Wesley Chapel, the matchup went from a struggle to an anticlimax.

The Mustangs scored four goals in 10 minutes to claim back-to-back district titles and their third in team history with a 6-1 victory over Wesley Chapel on Friday night at Mustang Field.

"I didn't agree with the goal that they (Wesley Chapel) scored, but I loved how the guys reacted," Mitchell coach Oscar Ubillus said. "We played well, and it was good to get the guys some rest before the playoffs."

Mitchell bristled toward Wesley Chapel's lone score in the second half, a controversial goal by Max Caceres in the 62nd minute. Mitchell players and coaches called for a hand ball, but the goal stood and Wesley Chapel (10-13-1) trailed by one.

But from then on it was all Mitchell as the Mustangs received goals from Gabriel Ruiz, Alex Wegener, Jason Leslie and David Vasquez to give Mitchell a 6-1 lead with 5:11 left.

Mitchell got first-half goals from Chris McVeigh and Brendan Ross.

The Mustangs took 28 shots on goal in contrast to Wesley Chapel's 10, and their efforts on the defensive end held the Wildcats to rare opportunities and led to their third district title in the past six years.

"With 15 minutes to play it could have been 1-1, but they have a ton of more depth than we do and we were running out of steam," Wesley Chapel coach Brian Dorkowski said.
