Acosta, DePue reign on Homecoming
DEPUE — It was Homecoming Week at DePue High School and Carlos Acosta reigned as king on the soccer field once again.
The junior forward scored four goals to lead the Little Giants to a 6-0 win over Monmouth-Roseville Saturday as DePue celebrated the 2012 Homecoming along the shores of Lake DePue.
Acosta said it’s always nice to win on Homecoming.
The Little Giants have got their game back on just in time for regionals which start up Wednesday at Rock Island. After a good start to the season, the Little Giants went on a tailspin, losing five games in a row.
“The team’s talent level increased and the team’s physicality level increased, and we just didn’t respond the way we normally do, due to that,” DePue coach Tim Stevens said. “It’s not how good you play during the season, its how you play at the end. It’s a psychology edge to take the No. 1 team at regional and take them to task.”
Acosta said it was just about getting back together as a team.
