The Wildcats’ soccer team broke open a scoreless soccer game with Greenville with three lightning quick goals in the second half to take a 3-0 win in a game the Wildcats had to have to keep playoffs hopes alive at the SSHS Track Complex Friday night.

The Wildcats kept the pressure on the Lions throughout the second half and it paid off as the ball bounced to Bryan Roque in front of the Lion’s goal and he kicked the ball in the net. Tha initial goal was scored at the 13:49 mark of the second half. Just 1:18 later after a hard foul on Gerardo Arellano, Chris Espinoza scored on the subsequent free kick. Espinoza scored his second goal just 17 seconds later on a strong kick into the net.

The Wildcats defense stifled Greenville all night long and reserve keeper Johnathan Lopez did a good job filling in for starter Rafael Lopez who was ill.

The Wildcats now have 4 wins, 2 shootout losses and 5 outright losses in district play. They are 11-5-4 for the season. The Wildcats play another must win game at Hallsville Tuesday night.
