2014 Desert Oasis Boys Soccer Capsule


Head coach: William Matthews, seventh season

2013 record: 7-8-1 (4-6 Southwest, fifth)

Returning lettermen (starters): Nine (four)

Top athletes: D Luis Cisneros (Sr.), F Marcellous Curtis (Jr.), GK Damien Herrera (Sr.), D Kirk Schroeder (Jr.), D Alec Kuklish (Jr.), F Diego Hidalgo (Jr.)

Outlook: The Diamondbacks lost seven starters to graduation and are hoping to reload.

Curtis should be among the leaders on offense after registering four goals and six assists last year.

Herrera returns in goal, where he posted three shutouts last season.

“Desert Oasis will begin a new chapter in their school’s history,” Matthews said. “Led by four-year varsity sweeper Luis Cisneros and goalkeeper Damien Herrera, the Diamondbacks will be hunting for their first playoff berth.”
