The Lady Cats’ soccer team defeated the district’s top team Hallsville, 2-1 at the SSHS Track Complex Tuesday night to nail down the number two seed in the district. Lady Cats Soccer Coach Jesus DeLeon believes the Lady Cats will now face Royse City in a bi-district playoff game. Details still need to be worked out.
In the game, Hallsville actually scored first at 19:59 of the first half on a nice crossing play. Lady Bobcat Mariah Martinez was camped right in front of the goal and scored. At 11:10 of the first half, Lady Cat Sophie Young maneuvered past defenders and put a shot on goal that the Hallsville keeper got hands on but could not keep the ball it from getting behind her. It was 1-1 at halftime. With possible overtime looming with just 3:15 left in the second half, Lady Cat Mileena Zirretta found the ball through a crowd around the goal and scored the go ahead goal. The Lady Cats held on and celebrated the hard fought win.
The Lady Cats ended district play with an 8-4 record. They are 13-7-2 for the season.
