Hard to believe that the Wildcats Soccer Team opened their regular season with a pair of losses. The Wildcats lost at Terrell and were defeated soundly by Ennis in their first game of a tournament in Forney.
Since then, the Wildcats have gone six games without a loss winning five and tying one. The Wildcats have been very hot in the Wylie ISD Men’s Soccer Showcase that ran this past Thursday through Saturday. The Wildcats won all three of the games, against Princeton Thursday and Mesquite Horn Friday and on Saturday morning, January 16, as they pinned the first loss of the season on Wylie East, 4-1.
Four different players scored for the Wildcats: Uriel Santacruz scored first with an unassisted goal, Josh Tavera scored next on an unassisted goal. Omar Hernandez scored the third Wildcats’ goal on a penalty kick. Joel Pasion had the fourth goal assisted by David Moreno.
Wildcats Coach Alexi Upton said the Wildcats defeated the Raiders who came in with a 6-0-1 record. He said he was so proud of his team that came out and outplayed Wylie East.
Coach Upton said the Wildcats were shaped great and he said they scored a lot of goals on counters. The Wildcats record is now 5-2-1. They play next at Highland Park on Tuesday night.
