Wildcats Soccer

Wildcats Soccer Coach Nicky Wiggins feels his Wildcats are better than your average fourth place playoff team. The Wildcats will be matched up with district champion Lovejoy in a bi-district game Friday at 8 p.m. at Princeton, part of a Lady Cats and Wildcats doubleheader. Coach Wiggins also feels his team is playing really well right now, like they were before district games begin. The Wildcats were 7-1-1 going into district. After a bad first half of district play, the Wildcats have turned things around. Everything came down to a Hallsville game on the road just like it did last year. The Wildcats won 4-1 to capture the last playoff spot. Concerning Lovejoy, Coach Wiggins said they lost only one game in district play. He said Lovejoy has lots of juniors and sophomores along with some seniors. Coach Wiggins said they are very athletic and he can tell quite a few of their players participate in club ball. He said the Wildcats attitude lately has been who is the next one we play. He expects to give Lovejoy a good game.

Lady Cats Soccer

The Lady Cats’ soccer team enters the playoffs against Royse City after what Lady Cats Soccer Coach Jesus DeLeon called a complete game with everyone playing well against district champ Hallsville. The Lady Cats came out on top at home, 2-1. Coach DeLeon thought the win was very significant because the Lady Cats had to rally after getting behind 1-0. He expects Royse City to present a good challenge for the Lady Cats but he adds all playoff games do. Coach DeLeon said he has played Royse City regularly in the past with mixed results. The two teams did not play this year. He said the coaches are familiar with each other and their styles. As Royse City has grown, Coach DeLeon said their players have gotten taller and more athletic. They remind him of Hallsville and last year’s bi-district foe Whitehouse. Coach DeLeon said Royse City has very talented midfielders. He sees play in the midfield as a key to the game. As always, Coach DeLeon said a big key to the game will be to not give them anything easy. The Lady Cats play Royse City at 6 p.m. Friday as the first half of a Lady Cats and Wildcats soccer bi-district doubleheader.
