Jacksonville’s Elias Silva is seen in action during Thursday’s District 35-4A match against Diboll at the Tomato Bowl. Jacksonville clobbered Diboll 12-0. The Indians improved to 10-7-1, 5-0-1 in district following a 8-0 rout of Lufkin Hudson Friday night. The Indians return to action at 7 p.m. Tuesday when they visit Center.

Jacksonville upped its slate to 10-7-1 overall, 5-0-1 in District 35-4A, following a pair of lopsided wins this week.

On Thursday the Indians humiliated Diboll, 12-0, and on Friday the Tribe toppled Lufkin Hudson, 8-0. Both matches were played at the Tomato Bowl.

Against Diboll, Roy Alvarez had a hat trick plus two — scoring a total of five goals — to lead the Indians to victory.

Danile Forry added a pair of points while Cesar Trujillo, Jeremy Quiroz, Favian Leyve, Rolando Alvarez and Anthony Velasquez all had single goals for the Tribe.

Jacksonville head coach, Randy Hammontree, stated the play of sweeper, Jeff Landrum and goalkeeper, Daniel Posada was “instrumental in the shutout.”

Despite a chilling rain falling throughout the match Friday, the Indians still managed to deposit the ball into the back of the net eight times against the Hornets.

Forry and Alvarez scored three goals each to pace Jacksonville while Velasquez and Ivan Carreon had a goal a piece.

Defensive standouts in the match, according to Hammontree, include Alvarez, Landrum, Posada, Kevin Quiroz, Cesar Trujillio and Michael Green.

The Tribe is back in action Tuesday when they are slated to journey to Center for a 7 p.m. match.
