The Lady Cats Soccer Team lost to Royse City, 3-1 Tuesday night, February 25, at Gerald Prim Stadium.
The Lady Cats trailed at the half, 1-0, then fell behind 2-0 in the second half, got a goal to cut the deficit to 2-1 and were putting on some heat to tie the game when disaster struck. In a scrum in front of their goal, the Lady Cats were called for a foul in the box resulting in a game-changing penalty kick for the Lady Bulldogs.
The PK was beautifully blocked by keeper McKenna Gammill, but the result was a big rebound. Lady Bulldog Mayte Aguilar, who took the penalty kick, put a follow shot into the net. Only 4:30 was left and Royse City held off the Lady Cats for the 2 goal win.
Lady Bulldog Trinity Hernandez scored the first two goals for Royse City. Lady Cat Rebekah Stanley scored for the Lady Cats.
The Lady Cats end the first half of district play with a 3-2 record. Their season record is now 7-8-1. The Lady Cats begin the second half of district play at Greenville Friday night
