South shuts out Harlingen 3-0

HARLINGEN — As Harlingen South head coach Julian Robles put it: “It was a game of checkers.”

In the second of two games Robles and the Hawks made all the right moves and adjustments in the second half, as Harlingen South pulled out a 3-0 victory over crosstown rival Harlingen at Boggus Stadium Tuesday night.

“I was very glad to see that the boys can adjust to a number of game situations,” said Robles. “It was a very emotional game especially being the Bird Bowl because it’s always emotional. I think its going to help us out in the long run especially since some of our lettermen stepped up and did what they had to do.

“In this district these points mean a lot. It’s a tough district and right now we’re in a great position, and that’s what you have to do in this district, claw and scratch for points.”
