Just when it looked like the Lady Cats’ soccer team and Texas High would play all night without scoring a goal, the Lady Cats scored a pair of goals in the second half of overtime to defeat the Lady Tigers, 2-0 at Gerald Prim Stadium Tuesday night (March 6).
Lady Cat Keeley Hudgins was battling two Lady Tiger defenders near their goal when she was able to push a left footed shot into the net at 9:33 in the second half of overtime. Just over 2 minutes later, Lady Cat Mileena Zirretta kicked a ball over the Lady Tigers’ defense. Lady Cat Gracie Boyer raced to the ball and put an arcing shot over the keeper and into the net at 7:13 in the second half of overtime. The Lady Cats defense made the goals stand up for the 2-0 win.
The Lady Cats picked up three big points. They are now 6-3 in district play and 14-5-3 for the season. The Lady Cats have an open date Friday. They play next in Mount Pleasant next Tuesday night.
