Southlake Carroll Wins Boys 5A State Soccer Title

View Comments ()



    Southlake Carroll's boys soccer team won its first championship since 2001.

    Karl de Zoeten and Mac McGuire both scored goals to lead Southlake Carroll to a 2-0 win over Round Rock McNeil and the boys 5A state soccer championship.

    Twenty minutes into the second half on Saturday, de Zoeten scored off a header from teammate Alex Petit's corner kick. Then with 3:38 left to play, McGuire nailed his goal in the back left pocket of the net to put the Dragons up 2-0.

    But before McGuire's goal, Round Rock McNeil punched back admirably. Nothing would get past Southlake goalkeeper Oshick Shams though, whose diving saves and one-handed grabs earned him the game's MVP honor.

    The victory gave Southlake its first state championship since 2001.
