It turned out to be a very good Saturday (January 23) for Wildcats Soccer Coach Alexi Upton. He woke up not knowing if his team would get into the championship game at the Terrell Tiger Winter Classic. Things broke the Wildcats way Saturday afternoon and they earned the right to play host Terrell in the Saturday evening final game. The Wildcats responded with a solid 3-0 win to earn the trophy. Omar Hernandez scored the first two Wildcats’ goals. The first was unassisted and the second was assisted by Uriel Santacruz. Alex Yanez had the third Wildcats’ goal assisted by Hernandez. Coach Upton said the Wildcats played amazingly. He said Hernandez had an amazing game. He added that every player that came in did great. Coach Upton said the Wildcats scored and celebrated. He noted he even subbed in his back up goalkeeper with about 7 minutes left to play and the keeper made a save on a penalty kick. The Wildcats won three and lost one in the tournament and their season record is now 8-4-1. The Wildcats play next against Pleasant Grove Tuesday night at Gerald Prim Stadium.
