Prep boys soccer: Farmersville puts in 'Super' effort for D-VI title

The Fresno BeeFebruary 25, 2014 

The "Seahawks" won again.

"It was like the Super Bowl," Farmersville coach Michael Jordan said after his top-seeded Aztecs received goals from Pedro Berber and German Gutierrez, and a standout performance from goalie Ruben Valencia to defeat No. 2 Mendota 2-0 Tuesday for a repeat Central Section Division VI boys soccer title.

Mendota (21-4-2) had scored more than 100 goals this season.

Farmersville (22-2-2) had given up only 13.

"So they were the Denver Broncos, a scoring machine, and we were the Seattle Seahawks," said Jordan, drawing an analogy with the Super Bowl won 43-8 by Seattle three weeks ago. "We play great team defense; we pressured them all over the field."

It was Farmersville's fifth section championship in 15 years under Jordan, and he'd like to think it will advance the Aztecs to the state D-III playoffs for the second straight year.

"I think we have a very good chance," he said, "but there are no guarantees."
