The Spanish Springs Cougars escaped with a 1-0 home win over Bishop Manogue in a boys prep soccer crossover league game Wednesday night, but beyond that, there wasn't much to smile about.

Cougars coach Rob Moreland was frustrated with his players' attitudes and inability to support each other on and off the field, stressing his squad looked selfish.

"This was a good educational experience for our kids," Moreland said. "We need to play as a team and not try to do everything individually. Those problems showed today."

Spanish Springs forward Victor Garcia scored the lone goal of the match. It was an unassisted score that came in the 12th minute of the match.

According to the SSHS stat sheet, the host Cougars got off 21 shots while Manogue did not get off a single shot at the Cougars' goal.

"The one goal we got, the ball was just bouncing around in the box and Victor put it in," Moreland said. "Their goalkeeper did well. He stopped a lot of shots. We were pounding them the whole game and just couldn't get it in."

Spanish Springs improved to 3-0-1 in conference clashes and it will go to Hug Saturday for a key 1 p.m. league game against the traditionally tough Hawks, who sport the same 3-0-1 record.
