Sulphur Springs completed a brutal two-game road stand which pitted Lady Cats soccer up against the top two teams in District 15-5A.
Unfortunately for Coach Javier Aguayo’s team, they ended up on the wrong side of a 1-0 victory for Mount Pleasant.
Excluding their 11-0 drubbing of Marshall on Tuesday, Feb. 8, women’s soccer played one of their best games since district season began in late January.
A win Friday would have been huge for Sulphur Springs as the Lady Cats attempt to make a late run for the postseason.
Instead, Friday’s loss in Mount Pleasant all but eliminates women’s soccer from the playoffs.
Coach Aguayo’s squad find themselves a few games back from 4 seeds Texas High and Pine Tree (both 4-4), #3 Mount Pleasant (5-3) and second place Hallsville (5-2).
With only five games left in district for Sulphur Springs, 2.5 games back of the 4 seeds, the Lady Cats are all but eliminated from postseason contention.
The only way in which women’s soccer can make the postseason now is by winning out, and getting help in the form of Pine Tree and Texas High both losing out.
The math is not on the Lady Cats’ side as the above listed scenario has less than a 1% chance of occurring.
Next up, women’s soccer are back at home on Tuesday, Mar. 1 hosting Texas High (4-4).
That game kicks off at the Prim at 7:15 P.M.
