Magallon makes right coaching move

first_img:There is a reason why Rudy Magallon is known as “El Maestro” — The Teacher. The Artesia High boys coach is a mastermind when it comes to prep soccer. With his team trailing by a goal in the Suburban League opener to Bellflower, Magallon didn’t wait until halftime to make an adjustment that put the Pioneers (8-5-1) in position to come away with a 2-1 win in double overtime. After several missed shots by his two forwards in the first half, Magallon decided to take them out and subbed in the 6-foot-2 Jose Gonzalez, who used his height on a corner kick to head in a goal and tie the score. Jordan Rover scored twice as the Griffins (8-2-2, 1-0-0) won their Sunset League opener.

Of course it would be wrong to give coach all the credit. His goalkeeper, Ivan Arechiga, played a major part in stopping virtually every Bellflower shot. “He made some saves,” Magallon said of his 5-7, 130-pound goalie. “I tell him every ball you have to go at it like its the last one. That’s just the way you have to play because you know he is not the tallest in the world. But he makes up for it with a lot of heart and goes for every ball. That’s just him.” : Daniel Frias Los Alamitos 5, Fountain Valley 0 center_img “He’s a player that doesn’t get a lot of playing time. He gets it in spurts,” Maggallon said. “But I always tell my players if you go in there for a minute, be ready because you can make a difference and he made it.” Both teams battled in a well-played and hard-fought game. In overtime the Buccaneers appeared to be worn out and played more defense than offense. In the five-minute double overtime, a Bellflower defender clipped Artesia forward Jose Rios inside the box, resulting in a penalty kick that Rios converted. last_img read more
