Tonight, I headed down to Galena Park ISD Stadium to catch the Humble boys in action against District 22-5A champs North Shore.

If it had not been for three North Shore goals in the first 15 minutes, this one might have been much different.

Humble appeared to be a bit gun shy early on, and an experienced and athletic North Shore squad made them pay for some early mistakes. In addition, the absence of senior goal keeper Jose Orozco, who was injured in a club game two weeks ago, clearly hurt the team.

In the second half, Humble made a couple of adjustments and managed to pull the game to within two when Alberto Padilla scored five minutes in off of a strange rebound. The play developed when Michael Rus-Vid penetrated the defense and fired a close range shot in the box that was blocked directly in front of the goal. It appeared that North Shore’s keeper had fallen on and safely secured the ball, but instead the ball squirted out allowing a Padilla to make the heads up play.

North Shore would add another goal to make the final tally 4-1, but the young Wildcats still managed to make some impressive plays. Not too bad for a team with seven freshman on the field, lacking their all district keeper.

For those of you don’t already know, we had a special guest reporter make an appearance at the Atascocita boys game tonight. as our previous fearless sports leader Jonathan Yardley returned to his Observer roots handle some game coverage for us.

You can also check out full coverage from Jonathan, and Carmen’s coverage of the girls game (here).
