Wildcats Soccer Coach Nicky Wiggins said his team played real hard in a 1-0 victory over Pittsburg on the road Tuesday night. Johnathan Alvarez scored the Wildcats’ goal. It was the Wildcats’ final non-district game.
Coach Wiggins said Pittsburg was a pretty good team and he added they were very physical. He called the match a good little dogfight to be in right before district play. Coach Wiggins said the atmosphere was good in Pittsburg with fans from both teams really getting into the game. With the Wildcats in the lead, he said every time Pittsburg got past midfield their fans thought they were going to tie up the game. Coach Wiggins said his team made the game a little more exciting than it should have been. He said the Wildcats created some opportunities but he told his players they needed to finish some of those and score some goals.
Coach Wiggins said his team is excited about starting district play at Pine Tree Friday night. The Wildcats finished non-district play with a 7-1-1 record. Pine Tree is always at the top of the district standings but the past two seasons, the Wildcats have played Pine Tree as good as anyone in the district. Coach Wiggins said he’d have to contact former Coach Andy Holt to learn his secret against the Pirates.
