Wildcats Soccer Falls to Lufkin, 4-1

The men’s soccer team could not keep up with a talented Lufkin squad, losing 4-1 in their second day of the Lobo Invitational on Friday, Jan. 14.

Coach Alexi Upton’s squad kept up with the Panthers through the first half, tied 1-1, but the second half Lufkin put the tourney match on ice.

The Panthers scored three goals unanswered in the second half to beat Sulphur Springs 4-1 on Friday, Jan. 14 in Longview.

Osvaldo Arellano scored the goal against Lufkin and assisted by Jose Rodriguez.

“[The] varsity is going to keep trying new things until we figure it out,” Coach Upton said. “Once we get a goalie back, a lot will change. Can’t win [in] football without a quarterback.”

The loss drops men’s soccer’s season record to 0-5-2.

Coach Upton’s squad hopes to avenge Thursday and Friday’s loss by wrapping up the Lobo Invitational with a win against Forney.

That match kicks off on Saturday, Jan. 15 at Lobo Stadium at 11:30 A.M.
