Tuesday, Jan. 4 did not go according to plan for the Lady Cats soccer’s home opener versus Celina.
The visiting Lady Cats had a scheduling conflict that did not allow them to make the trip to Sulphur Springs for the season opener.
When passing by Gerald Prim Stadium just past 5 P.M., it looked as though fans were exiting the stadium around the same time the junior varsity squad would have been gearing up for their home opener.
Instead, news came down to Coach Javier Aguayo that Celina would not be making the trip.
As a result, Celina did not forfeit the win to Sulphur Springs and the Lady Cats, instead being ruled as a no-contest, the women’s coach confirmed over text.
Next up, Coach Aguayo and women’s soccer were originally scheduled to participate in their first regular-season tournament starting this Thursday in Longview, but that has since been changed.
Now, the Lady Cats will not be in Longview until Jan. 20-22.
Instead of traveling to Longview this weekend Coach Aguayo and his women’s soccer team travel to Kilgore for their tournament.
The Lady Cats take on Bullard at 5:30 P.M. on Thursday, Jan. 6 in Kilgore.
