There are also big soccer district games on the schedule on this Friday game day. Both the Wildcats and Lady Cats are playing Mount Pleasant. The Wildcats will be traveling to Mount Pleasant. Wildcats Soccer Coach Nicky Wiggins put it well. “There is nothing pleasant about playing in Mount Pleasant”. After losing their first district game at home to a very good Pine Tree team, the Wildcats have won their last two district games, at Marshall and at home against Texas High. The Wildcats have a 9-7 season record. Year in and year out, Mount Pleasant has one of the district’s best teams. There will be a JV game at 5:30 p.m. Friday with a varsity game to follow at 7 p.m.
Meanwhile, the Lady Cats’ soccer team, 3-0 so far in district play, will face Mount Pleasant Friday evening at Gerald Prim Stadium. The Lady Cats have district wins at Pine Tree, at home against Marshall and at Texas High. The Lady Cats are 10-2-3 for the season. The Lady Cats will have to overcome some nagging injuries and dual yellow card one game suspension. There will be a JV contest at The Prim at 5:30 p.m. and a varsity game to follow at 7 p.m. We will bring you Lady Cats’ soccer live on KSST Radio beginning at 7 p.m. We will also videotape the game for replay later on Channel 18 on Suddenlink Cable.
