Heritage comes back in soccer win

Rock Canyon scored first but lost match 2-1

Heritage’s boys soccer team rallied to earn a 2-1 Continental League victory over Rock Canyon in a Sept. 13 match played at Halftime Help Stadium.

Eagles coach Adam Buseck made some personnel changes in the second half but insists it was his team that ignited the comeback after the teams played a scoreless first half.

“We have a lot of juniors who play a lot, we do have a lot of seniors too, but the juniors really have matured,” said Buseck. “It’s showing that they want to fight and win games.

“With our group we talk about a mentality of dealing with adversity, staying positive, don’t let the referee bother you, don’t yell at each other, don’t yell at your opponent. The guys did a good job of buying into that against Rock Canyon.”

Sophomore Liam Gilbert scored both Heritage goals in the comeback win after Rock Canyon’s Aiden Bowman gave the Jaguars a 1-0 lead in the 65th minute with a penalty kick goal.

Gilbert tied the game with a goal 13 minutes later and won the game with his second goal with 3:40 left to play in regulation time.

“The first one I kind of found a space inside the 18, got a punch on the ball and shot it on goal and it went in,” said Gilbert. “The second one, Zach (Armijo) shot it and a player checked it right to me.

“We just had to stay focused. We’ve won the last two games so it can only being going up for us.”

Heritage improved its overall record to 3-2-1 and 1-0 in the Continental League while coach Luis Beimad’s Rock Canyon team slipped to 2-3-2 and 0-1.

“It was our first win in league so that sets us up to start league play,” said Buseck. “The Continetal League is still tough. It does feel open this season and this sets us up for league play and we’ll see if we can get more.”
