Women’s soccer could not keep up with a talented Hallsville team, falling 5-0 at home on Friday, Feb. 18.
The visiting Lady Cats (13-1 overall, 5-1 district) kept a healthy scoring average, putting one in the goal an average of every 16 minutes at Gerald Prim Stadium.
Hallsville scored two in the first period to head into the half leading 2-0.
Coming out of the break though, the visiting Lady Cats bested their first period gains by scoring three goals en route to a commanding 5-0 victory over women’s soccer on Friday, Feb. 18.
The shutout loss at home Friday drops Coach Javier Aguayo’s team’s season record to 4-11-1 (1-5 district).
Friday’s loss to Hallsville is the second straight and fourth in five games for women’s soccer.
Sulphur Springs has a tough week ahead of them in a two-game road-stand, first in Longview Tuesday followed by Mount Pleasant on Friday, Feb. 25.
The following Tuesday has Coach Aguayo’s Lady Cats hosting Texas High.
If Sulphur Springs cannot win or tie one of their two matches this week (a tall task up against the top two teams in District 15-5A), nor get a win over the Lady Tigers on Mar. 1, they may be all but eliminated from postseason contention.
