Cattleman’s squad keeps Ninjas scoreless

September 23, 1987

In the Battle for Blanco, the Cattleman’s National Bank soccer team played a great game. The Ninjas had a terrific defense, lad by goalkeeper Carson Hostetler. Aaron Stenulson and Daniel White moved the ball well through the midfield. Troy Abbot, Hooly Head, and Lauren Elsey also showed a lot of hustle for the Cattleman’s team.

The offense came close to scoring, but even the gutsy play of Danny Bethke could not produce a goal. It was a spirited game that both Blanco teams played, and the Ninjas showed great improvement.

This Saturday the Cattleman’s National Bank team tries again at 11:45 a.m.
