Wildcats Soccer Coach Andy Holt said his team played as different as night and day Thursday in a Rockwall tournament as they split two games. In the sunlight, the Wildcats lost to McKinney North, 2-0. Coach Holt said his team’s energy level was not there out front on the attack and they didn’t create opportunities. He said the team played pretty strong in the middle and in the back. The Wildcats were a different team after the sun went down. The Wildcats bounced back to defeat Royse City, 2-0. Coach Holt said his team was flying around and created quite a few opportunities. Scott Galarza scored a first half goal on a good crossing assist. The Wildcats put pressure on the Bulldogs in the second half and benefited from a Royse City own goal. The Wildcats will play South Garland at 6:30 p.m. Friday. They have to win their pool to play any games Saturday and that appeared unlikely after Thursday games. The Wildcats have 2 wins, 4 losses and a tie so far this season.
