first_imgAnother big test loomed Saturday, Grimes against state Class C no. 11-ranked Bishop Ludden, whose coach, Oscar Vergara, was honored earlier in the week by the United Soccer Coaches group as a High School Coach of Significance.Vergara was one of 41 high school coaches from across the United States to earn this honor, which recognizes coaches who, through character lessons, make an impact on and off the field.What the accolades could not do was impact the game, though, as Grimes shut out Ludden 4-0, led by Mawien, who earned two of the Cobras’ goals. Mugushu also converted, as did Jack Gutchess, with Matt Tarby stopping all eight shots he faced.
