Iboa, Phoenix boys trip up Hidden Valley

MURPHY — Typically a barn-burner of a boys soccer match whenever Phoenix and Hidden Valley square off, the Pirates proved to be too much this time around.

Omar Iboa scored a pair of first-half goals and Jalisco Macias padded the lead with a goal in the second half to help Phoenix remain unbeaten with a 3-0 victory in Skyline Conference action Tuesday.

"A 3-0 victory in our league, which is always so tough, it's a pretty good day for the Pirates," said Phoenix coach Dennis Flenner. "We're pretty happy."

Carlos Mena picked up the shutout in goal for the Pirates (9-0, 4-0 Skyline).

Iboa's goals came within a seven-minute span in the first half, and mirrored each other. He scored on a high 25-yard drive in the 29th minute, then took a pass from Danny Giardina and scored on a similar shot in the 36th minute over the head of goalie Caleb Aldstadt.

"They were just kinda high shots that our keeper just didn't pick up on and it ended up just going over his head," said Hidden Valley coach Tim Hannah, whose team dropped to 2-5 overall and 2-2 in Skyline play.

After receiving a pass from Jonathan Hernandez, Macias dribbled around the box before finally delivering a shot into the back of the net in the 57th minute to help secure the victory.

HENLEY 6, ILLINOIS VALLEY 0 — At Klamath Falls, Ryan Conley and Danny Celemin each scored twice to lead Henley to the Skyline Conference victory.

Travis Mortenson and Sam Johnson also scored for the Hornets. Earning assists were Sean Demaris, Jake Lamouroux, Juan Romero, James Richardson, Alex Ramirez and Celemin.

Henley led 1-0 at halftime.
