After Good Play in Terrell Tournament, Wildcats Soccer Team Hosts Pittsburg Tuesday Night

The Wildcats Soccer Team played well in the Terrell Tiger Winter Classic this past weekend (January 16-18). The Wildcats tied Kilgore and defeated Hallsville and Seagoville. Wildcats Soccer Coach Alexi Upton said the Wildcats just came up short for point needed to qualify for the tournament’s championship game. Coach Upton said the Wildcats defeated Hallsville, 2-0 but could well have scored several more goals. Tuesday night the Wildcats play Pittsburg at Gerald Prim Stadium. There will be a JV contest at 5:30 p.m. with the Varsity contest to follow at around 7:15 p.m. The Wildcats come into the contest with a season record of 4-4-3. Coach Upton said Pittsburg has an 8-1 record with their only loss to perennial soccer power Palestine. He called the Pirates a good, solid team that has defeated some decent teams. Coach Upton said the Pirates would challenge the Wildcats. Friday the Wildcats will be back at The Prim hosting Mesquite Poteet, Coach Upton’s alma mater. He said it’s always good to play your old school. He said it would be fun and exciting.
