HOUSTON - It has been a long time coming for the Elsik Rams soccer team.

After several years of stellar regular seasons, but disappointing playoff results, head coach Vincenzo Cox and the 21-2-3 Rams have broken through and have reached the state semifinals.

Elsik will face Brownsville Hanna (25-1-3) on Friday.

The Rams have been ranked near or at the top of the state and national rankings and they feature a team full of international flavor with players whose families come as far away as Nigeria to as close as Mexico.

Somehow they ve put it all together. But for them, winning a title is more than just a trophy. It s about pride, especially coming from Elsik High School.

KHOU 11 Sports reporter Daniel Gotera talked with Rams.
