Bassett finishes big season in tie

first_imgHaving already wrapped up the Montview League crown, Bassett High School’s boys soccer team ended league play Tuesday with a 1-1 tie against visiting Workman. The Olympians, who lost their first league game of the season 1-0 to La Puente, wound up finishing with a 10-1-1 Montview mark. Senior goalie Fernando Campos played well all game with 12 saves for Workman. “If we were giving out game balls, I’d give it to Campos,” Lobos coach Rick Alfaro said. “He played a spectacular game today.” For Bassett, the game was strictly a warmup for the CIF-Southern Section playoffs, according to coach Raul Contreras. He gave credit to the entire Montview League for a competitive run that should help Bassett in the playoffs. Workman (3-5-3) struck first Tuesday when Brian Flores scored in the 13th minute on an assist from Julio Velasquez. Bassett’s Jose Angel Lopez evened the game in the 12th minute of the second half. center_img “I think all the teams were at the same level, but we got lucky and won a lot of games at the end.” Alfaro was proud of the Lobos after a season of near misses. “We’re a really good team and had our chances, but couldn’t put the ball in the back of the net,” he said of some of Workman’s tough losses. The Lobos finish the season against La Puente Thursday, while Bassett has a bye. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
