Mineral Wells Index

— FORT WORTH – Omar Hernandez and Gilbert Castorena each scored as the Mineral Wells Rams defeated Brewer, 2-0, here Tuesday night in a District 12-4A match.

The win lifts the Rams’ district mark to 4-2-1.

“The boys played very well,” Rams head coach Rolando Borjon said. “At half the score was 0-0 but I told the boys that we were playing very good and we were controlling the game.

“I was very pleased at half. We were playing at our best. I told them to just continue to play and we would catch a break and put one in.”

The two goals came 11 minutes apart. Borjon was very impressed with Castorena’s goal.

“With about 13 minutes left Serjio Castillo crossed a ball on the top of the 18-yard box where Gilbert trapped it with his chest and shot it on a volley into right bottom corner of the keeper.  

“It was a one, two, punch kick; it happened so fast.  We up 2-0 and our defense finished the game.”
