SOCORRO – The Lady Warrior Soccer team will host the annual Socorro Cup eight team tournament beginning at 1 p.m. Friday. The tournament will conclude on Saturday.
The games begin Friday with Valencia playing Grants. At 3 p.m. Belen with play Hatch, at 5 p.m. Alamogordo will play Bloomfield and at 7 p.m. Socorro will play Monte del Sol, a Santa Fe team.
Friday’s winners advance to play in the semifinals Saturday morning, with Friday’s losers playing in the consolation bracket. The third round will be Saturday afternoon and evening.
The Socorro girls and boys traveled to Grants last Saturday for a scrimmage.
“Actually we played pretty well,” Socorro girls coach Mitch Carrejo said. “We ended up winning 4-0 I believe. I just moved girls around and tried to play some different combinations. There were a lot of good things that came out. I like to be able to play somebody else besides just playing each other. For a first scrimmage we’re coming along pretty good.”
Carrejo said that there were still a lot of things the team needed to work on. So far this year Carrejo said he had 19 girls on the team, including six seniors. Class 5A Alamogordo would likely be favored to win the tournament according to Carrejo.
Alamogordo had participated in the tournament distant past but not in the last few years. Class 4A Belen had a strong team last year and is expected to do well. Valencia and Grants are also Class 4A schools.
