Houston, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/02/2012 -- In a recent article by the Houston based Cypress Creek Mirror, Adam Coleman caught up with Scott Tucker, coach of the Langham Creek Lobos high school soccer team who recently enjoyed the end of the Lobos play off drought as they recorded their first play off win in more than 5 years. Last week's 1-0 defeat of Aldine was the first time the Lobos have made it past the round of the play offs for 5 years. The victory, which came courtesy of Fernando Cardona's goal at the start of the second half secured a bi-district play off win which sent the Lobos into the area round of the play offs where they will meet Seven Lakes.

The Lobos, 17-5A district champions finally scored their first goal in the play offs for many years which seemed to please coach Scott Tucker, who had set a pre season target of getting through the first round of the play offs. He told The Cypress Creek Mirror that "I told these guys the last time we scored a goal (in the play offs) was in the regional quarterfinals against Chavez in '07." He further added that "We definitely feel good about where we're at. Just glad to be here right now and glad we bought another day for us."

The Lobos had progressed to the first round of the play offs for the sixth consecutive season but had fallen at the first play off round every year before this success. The victory over the Aldine Mustangs was no mean feat as The Mustangs were coming off the back of a very good season where they had given Alief Elsik, one of the best teams in the state trouble all season long. Coach Scott Tucker will be hoping The Lobos can extend their season some more with a victory against Seven Lakes next week.
