The Lobos have only a cou- ple of days before facing a very good Clemens team on Friday night at home, but taking third place in a tournament with so many highly ranked teams is a positive sign for this young Lobo squad. The Lobos faced Manor after a Thursday win 1-0 over Aldns and a 1-1 tie with Reagan on Friday. On Saturday afternoon, Leh- man was not quite sure where they stood in the standings of the Rebel Cup. A win against a good Leander squad would have placed them in first place of their group. Le- hman got just that, using skill- ful play to defeat Leander 4-2, earning the Lobos aTop 5 finish in the 2013 Rebel Cup. The first thing on the Lobos' minds was to generate more offense, since they only scored two goals in two games. "We talked about putting the ball in position; keeping the ball at the point. We just kept the ball on the ground. Faster play also helped," said Sansom dur- ing the weekend. The Lobos took their coach's advice and came out looking to score early and pressure the Leander Lions' defense. Fresh- man Diego Garcia responded with 3 first half goals, all in the first 15 minutes of play. Then, in the 25th minute, junior Manuel Diego hit an arching cross which fotmd senior Delfino Moncivais. who nailed it home for a 4-0 lead for the now confident Lobos. From there, it was time to fo- cus on the defensive effort to try and preserve a shutout. Lean- der already had 2 shots on goal which bounced offthe crossbar, and they would finally break through before the half with a goal of their own to make it 4-1. The Lobos maintained con- trol of possession in the second half. Save for one goal allowed. the Lobo defense held firm for the remainder of the contest. The strong play of sophomore midfielders Rene Torres. Bryan Percastegui, and lunior mid- fielder Albert Percastegui lim- ited the Lions' chances. Tortes was quick to point out the collective effort from the en- tire team. "I say the defense played a big part in (the win). The defenders kept the ball up, working to the midfield, which (in turn) gave us 468-4451 122 Main Street Downtown Buda at the traffic light Open every day 295-6008 Lehman beat Akins during Thursday's play in the 2013 Rebel Cup.

"(Manor) had a good showing; they fled (Cibolo Steele) 0-0. Our hands will be full. If we play like we did against Reagan, we Hill be in trouble.
