Wildcat Soccer Earns Playoff Berth with Senior Night Win

The Wildcats’ soccer team earned a playoff berth with a 1-0 win over Hallsville Tuesday night on Senior Night at Gerald Prim Stadium. This is the third straight year that the Wildcats have made the playoffs by knocking the Bobcats out of the playoffs with a victory in the final district game. The past two years, the game was in Hallsville.

Game Saver: Wildcats goalkeeper Jonathan Lopez stops the Hallsville penalty kick, which preserves the 1-0 lead and victory.

Tuesday night the Wildcats got a goal from senior Angel Tavera at the 27:06 mark of the first half and then held on to the lead. Wildcats goalkeeper Jonathan Lopez, despite being hampered by an aggravated muscle pull, turned in a stellar performance. Lopez blocked a potential tying penalty kick taken by the Bobcats Alan Acuna at 15:30 in the first half. The Wildcats defense did a good job of frustrating the Bobcats’ offense all night.

The Wildcats improved their district record to 6-6 and they are now 13-12 for the season. As the fourth playoff seed in district 16-5A, the Wildcats will play the champion of district 15-5A in a bi-district game next week with details to be determined.

Before the game the Wildcats recognized twelve seniors, Rafael Lopez, Jonathan Lopez, Israel Hernandez, Julio Robles, Angel Tavera, Jonathan Alvarez, Brandon Diosdado, Christian Huff, D.J. Abron, Eduardo Ramirez, Omar Ramirez and Ramon Hernandez.
