Lady Cats soccer got a win, tie and loss from Jan. 6-8 in the Kilgore tournament, their first regular-season tourney of the year.
Thursday’s opening match versus Bullard was the first regular season contest for the women’s soccer squad.
It did not go as planned for Coach Javier Aguayo’s squad, as Sulphur Springs fells to Bullard 3-1 on Thursday, Jan. 6.
It was a tough loss for the girls, as the Lady Cats trailed 3-0 at the half and were able to get one in early in the second half.
Coach Aguayo said the second half was a better, in that they were able to control the game and create more chances. The women’s soccer coach said his squad kept getting shots on goal but couldn’t convert.
Injuries are hurting the Lady Cats at the moment, as Coach Aguayo missed six starters in the loss to Bullard.
Friday, Jan. 7 was a better day for women’s soccer, getting a 2-1 win over Spring Hill.
Springs Springs was able to score two goals in the first half and conceded one in the second half. Coach Aguayo said he was glad his squad shook things off from the Bullard loss and rebounded by starting out with a great first half against Spring Hill.
Due to injuries, the women’s soccer coach moved up some JV players who are getting plenty of playing time. Coach Aguayo said this will help the Lady Cats be ready for district.
