Grapevine Faith boys make it back to back

Grapevine Faith Christian captured its second consecutive TAPPS Division II state championship Saturday with a 1-0 victory over El Paso Lydia Patterson at Central Catholic High School's Bob Benson '66 Stadium.  Michael Hinkley scored in the 28th minute, and goalkeeper Chapman Odom had five saves to lead the Lions in a contest played in heavy wind.

"This is the greatest feeling in the world," Hinkley said. "I just really have to thank God for pulling us through these last two games and helping us win another championship."

Hinkley's goal was set up when Dylan Ingle found Dan Hancock near the box on a free kick from around the 50-yard line.  Hancock then pushed it off to Hinkley, who was just outside the box and booted it in from 20 yards out into the right side of the goal to give the Lions (15-3-3) a 1-0 lead.

The Faith defense denied Patterson's offense a single goal, even though Patterson (8-4) had six total corner kicks compared to three for the Lions.  Patterson's defense was just as unyielding with goalkeeper Jose Saenz finishing with four saves. Both squads finished the game with six shots on goal.

"The wind was blowing really hard right in my face, especially in the second half, so I realized I needed to buckle down and tuck the ball in real tight," Odom said. "That's a great team we played. They had some great shots. My defense bailed me out a bunch of times."
