MUNSTER | On Saturday, the boys soccer match between Times No. 4 Munster and No. 5 Bishop Noll was called with the score tied 2-2 at the 14:52 mark in the first half after a 60-minute weather delay.

That's how it would end from the rest of the game that continued Wednesday evening.

It didn't end without some close calls, though, as both teams had good chances to score.

In the 61st minute, sophomore forward Gabriel Anguiano had a wide open shot after Munster keeper Xavier Hofferth came out of the net trying to corral the ball, but he bobbled it away and Anguiano's shot went off the right post.

"He's gonna dream about that one tonight," Noll coach Armando Garza joked.

Six minutes later, Harris Kouklakis misfired on two shots within 20 seconds, as one went inches over the goal and the other went a foot to the right.

"We can't take anyone for granted," said Garza. "I would have loved a victory and we had a couple of opportunities. I was worried that we wouldn't come out with the same fire we did on Saturday, but we did, which was good."

On Saturday, junior midfielder Alex Avalos netted Noll's first goal when he shot towards the high right side over the outstretched arms of Hofferth in the 13th minute.

Just one minute later, the Mustangs (3-0-1) got their first goal when they drew Noll keeper Jonathan Lozano out of the box, Nik Kajmakoski passed to Peter Panos, and he skied one over Lozano for the easy open goal.

Five minutes later in the 19th minute, Noll (3-0-1) tallied its second goal when freshman Alejandro Hernandez booted a free kick from about 45 yards out that Hofferth and the defense misplayed, as the ball bounced over his head and into the net.

Demetri Georgalas hit one on a free kick in the 26th minute after Noll was flagged for a handball just outside its own goalie box.

"We basically gave them two goals and that shouldn't have happened," Munster coach Jim Prasopoulos said. "I think we outplayed them at points, but we couldn't finish.

"We're still in the discovery phase because I have not designated a JV or varsity roster yet this year. We're still trying to find the right combination of players, which will take a little time," he added.
