Lady Warriors Finish Fourth In Socorro Cup

The Socorro girls soccer team opened its season by finishing fourth at the Socorro Cup last weekend.
Playing without sophomore Dezirae Armijo who was the top scorer in the state last year, the Lady Warriors opened with a 3-1 loss to Grants. Then Socorro tied Valencia 3-3.
Finishing second in its pool, the Lady Warriors then lost to Alamogordo 3-1 to finish fourth in the tournament.
Offensively, the Lady Warriors were led by Angelina Stanzione, who had four goals in the tournament.
“It was a good experience for us,” Socorro coach Mitch Carrejo said. “We are really young and there are some real positives.”
Armijo injured her ankle during preseason and Carrejo was not certain if she would play this weekend at the Roswell tournament.


Area volleyball teams opened their seasons at the Magdalena tournament.
Socorro defeated Cobre and Lordsburg but lost to Mountainair. Magdalena lost to Springer and Quemado but beat Alamo.

Boys soccer

The Socorro boys soccer team opened its season with an 8-0 loss to Valencia Tuesday at home.
Socorro assistant coach Kenny Gonzales said, “They start a bunch of juniors and seniors and we only have one senior and two juniors on our team. When it got to be 4-0, we put in our substitutes to give them some playing time.”
Sophomore Johnny Carrilli, who scored both of Socorro’s goals in a scrimmage loss to Grants last week, broke and dislocated his wrist, Gonzales said.
