Wildcats Soccer Falls in PKs at Paris

Coach Alexi Upton and his squad did not have the outing they were hoping for, falling in PKs at Paris.

Friday’s loss at Wildcat Stadium is the first for the men’s soccer program since non-district play wrapped up in late-January.

In Paris Friday, Mar. 3, Sulphur Springs looked to complete the season sweep over the other Wildcats, in doing so winning the District 15-4A title.

Unfortunately for Coach Upton and his squad, falling in PKs did the opposite for the men’s soccer team.

“[It] wasn’t the result we wanted,” the men’s soccer coach said following his team’s loss in Paris.

Coach Upton said his team got little help from officiating in a wild game, but still persevered and drove the opposing Wildcats to PKs, falling there in Paris Friday.

The men’s soccer coach said his squad still has a chance to win district, having good goal differential, especially so considering Paris slipping in goals.

Edgar Salazar scored the lone goal for Sulphur Springs Friday, unassisted, as the athlete continues to have a stand-out season.

Falling in Paris though brings the men’s soccer team’s season record to 15-8-1.

Friday’s loss also snaps an eight-game winning streak for the squad.

Next up Coach Upton and his squad return to home Tuesday, Mar. 7 hosting Chapel Hill.

That game kicks off at the Prim Tuesday at 7:30 P.M.
