Regardless of who or where it plays, so far things seem to be going fairly well for the Mexico varsity boys soccer team in this new era under first-year coach William Gleeson.
After first debuting with a home jamboree that garnered several layers of preseason success that then carried over into a well-played season-opener at Elsberry on Aug. 28, the Bulldogs next challenge took place at home in the form of their initial home game last Thursday against Fulton. Not only did this contest double as Mexico's opening North Central Missouri Conference game of 2018-19, but the Hornets are one of the few teams the Bullogs are familiar with because of the jamboree and that knowledge paid off in spades as they used that information to come out ahead 7-3.
"The goals (were) scored by Dalyn Feigenspan, Diego Vasquez, and Jeff Haines. Two goals (each) were scored by Alan Ventura and Emmanuel Hernandez," said Gleeson. "Staying calm and playing our game helped us in this contest."
Mexico, 2-0 overall, 1-0 NCMC, has another league game at Marshall today and is at Battle for a non-conference game on Thursday.
