Men’s soccer fought for three periods to get a Senior Night win but ultimately fell short in overtime.
Sulphur Springs got ahead 1-0 over the visiting Bobcats but gave up two unanswered en route to a 2-1 loss on Tuesday, Mar. 15 to end their regular season.
Edgar Salazar scored the lone goal on the night in the loss for the Wildcats in the second period.
Six Wildcats suited up for the final time at Gerald Prim Stadium; Bryan Gonzalez, Angel Andino (who assisted Salazar for the senior’s 7th assist on the season), Manuel Vega, Alan Hernandez, Erick Montalvo and Osvaldo Arellano.
Tuesday’s Senior Night loss drops Coach Alexi Upton’s squad’s season record to 7-15-2 (6-6 district).
The loss to the Bobcats drops the Wildcats to the 4 seed entering the postseason, also making men’s soccer take on a district champion in the opening round of playoffs.
Next up, Sulphur Springs waits until Friday to find out who they play in the Bi-District round of playoffs.
Regardless of who they play in the opening round next week, Coach Upton and his team play a warm-up game on Monday, Mar. 21.
The precursor to the postseason kicks off in Lindale Monday at 7 P.M.
