The Wildcats’ soccer team upset one of the district’s best teams, Pine Tree, winning 1-0 at the SSHS Track Complex Tuesday night.
The Wildcats scored the game’s lone goal at around the 16:00 minute mark of the first half. Neither team could manage a goal after that. The Wildcats are hoping the win will be a part of a big second half surge in district play.
During the six game first half, the Wildcats could manager only one win, two shootout losses and 3 outright losses. Included was a 5-1 loss at Pine Tree on January 27. The Wildcats now have 2 wins, 2 shootout losses and 3 outright losses. Their season record is 9-4-3.
The Wildcats will travel to Marshall Friday night. Back on January 31 in Sulphur Springs, the Mavericks defeated the Wildcats 6-5 in a shootout after the game ended 3-3 after overtime.
