Bulldog Soccer kicked off their season with a big win over LaVernia this past Saturday.



Bandera Bulldog Soccer kicked off the season traveling to LaVernia and battling for their first big win over the Bears this past Saturday.
“It was a good win for us because LaVernia is a good team,” Head boys soccer coach Clifton Tierney said.
Bandera’s defense held strong throughout the game, shutting down the Bears at their goal and holding them to 0.
With 12 minutes left in the game, Abram Mata scored the winning goal.
“Our defense played strong and our physicality played a huge part in the win,” Tierney said.
Earlier in the week on Tuesday, Jan. 3, the Bulldogs took on and defeated the Burnet Bulldogs in preseason play at Bulldog Stadium.
The Bulldog’s offense was on fire with high octane rallies to their goal, scoring four goals, while holding Burnet to one goal.
Bulldog goals were scored by Abram Mata with two goals, Nick Aguirre with one goal and Dimitri Garcia with one goal.
The Bulldogs held their own against powerhouses San Antonio Brandies and Smithson Valley in earlier scrimmage play.
Bandera played a home game against Alamo Heights on Tuesday and will travel to Uvalde this Friday, with JV starting at 5 pm and Varsity kicking off at 7 pm.
