Despite numerous chances to score, North Dallas played to a 0-0 tie against Seagoville in Tuesday’s nondistrict game at Henry Stadium.
North Dallas Coach Jose Aguirre said he wasn’t pleased with the first half play but the adjustments at halftime helped in the second half.
“It was kinda bad the first half. I expected the guys to play more for each other. They were making some bad passes,” Aguirre said. “But at halftime, we talked about it. We had to make some adjustments. We had to play more for each other. We also had to play more for the team.”
Aguirre noted that Seagoville was a “physical opponent.”
“They picked that up and created more chances,” he said. “We’re getting there. We’re progressing in our attacking. The defense had another shutout. We’re also very happy because our defense is pretty solid.”
Seniors Kevin Zuniga and Jose Cervantes led the defense, along with freshman goalie Angel Rios.
Asked about what the scoring attack needs, Aguirre said, “Chemistry on top and less individualism. More combinations on top. It’s something that we have to continue working on in practice because there’s a lot of new guys.”
