An incredible run to the 5A UIL State Championship Tournament has come to an end for the Wisdom Generals Boys Soccer Team. Aledo scored the only goal of the 5A State Semifinal game in the first half, and the Region 3 Champions were never able to find the equalizer, losing the match 1-0 on Thursday at Birkelbach Field in Georgetown, Texas.
Although the Generals had more shots on goal (19-8), and seemed to be in full control of the ball, it was the Bearcats’ Kyle Maurer who received a pass from Noah Knesek through on the left wing and found the back of the net from 20 yards out, about 25 minutes into the match. That goal stood up, as Wisdom could not find a way to score. They had plenty of chances, but it just wasn’t their day, as it had been in every playoff game up to this point.
“We left our hearts out there on that field today, and I thought we out-played them,” said head coach Fidel Andrade. “We kept putting the pressure on and had some chances, we kept hitting the post in the second half. So you start to think it wasn’t meant to be for us. I just hope we were able to make the city of Houston and our student body proud, and I’m extremely proud of this team.”
Joseph Irias led the Generals with six shots on goal. Eduardo Salgado had five and Cesar Montelongo had four.
It was the Generals second birth at State – they also made it this far in 2014 – only to lose in the semifinal game once again. Wisdom finishes the season with a record of 21-3-2, and they remain the only team from Houston ISD to ever reach the UIL State Championship Tournament in Boys Soccer.
Aledo (25-0-4) remained unbeaten on the season and advanced to the State Championship game, where they will face either Pharr Valley View or Frisco Wakeland on Saturday.
