The Mountain Home boys excelled while the Lady Tigers stumbled as this year's soccer seasons continued last week.

Juan Sanchez, Brandon Zacharias and Abraham Salinas each scored goals. Fernando Martinez had an assist. Meanwhile, Jack Richelieu had 11 saves on goal.

"It was a great win," said Tiger boys head soccer coach Jay Lockett. "We finally come together and everything worked perfectly -- well, as well as could be expected."

"It's just great to see them coming together and playing like they're supposed to be playing and as the games go on we're just going to get better and better," added assistant coach Tre Baham.

The win improved the Tigers to 2-2-1 on the season.

Mountain Home has a busy schedule coming up. They hosted Middleton on Tuesday and travel to Emmett on Thursday, Sept. 6, before they host Columbia on Saturday and Nampa on Monday.
