Just about everyone anticipated a really good soccer match Wednesday night as the district’s #2 team Mt. Pleasant visited the district’s #3 team, the Wildcats at Gerald Prim Stadium. It didn’t materialize as Mt. Pleasant dominated the Wildcats early scoring four unanswered goals in the first half.
In the second half, at 29:37 Chris Espinoza scored the Wildcats first goal on a penalty kick after a Wildcats player was fouled in the box. When Mt. Pleasant tacked on a fifth goal, Wildcats Soccer Coach Andy Holt emptied his bench. Israel Lopez also tallied a late goal for the Wildcats. Mt. Pleasant ended up with a 7-2 win.
The loss dropped the Wildcats to 6-3 in district play with two of the losses to the Tigers. The Wildcats season record is now 11-8-1. The Wildcats will try and right the ship as they travel to tough Pine Tree for a 7 p.m. game Friday night.
