The Wildcats Soccer Team had the bad fortune of having to face perhaps the districts top two teams to start district play this season.
Tuesday night, February 2, the Wildcats ended up on the short end of a 2-0 score against arch rival Mount Pleasant at Gerald Prim Stadium. The Tigers scored a goal at 10:26 of the first quarter and added a second goal at 32:55 in the second quarter. The Tigers defense kept the Wildcats from scoring.
The loss dropped the Wildcats to 0-2 in district play and they have yet to score a goal in their two losses. The Wildcats lost 1-0 to Longview Friday night. Both the Tigers and Lobos were preseason ranked in the top 10 in the region in Class 5A.
The Wildcats’ season record is now 9-6-1. Perhaps what they need is a road trip. The Wildcats continue district play on the road Friday night in Texarkana against Texas High. Texas High has also started district play at 0-2 with road losses against Marshall and Pine Tree.
