The soccer teams had an unique opportunity to take on Lone Star High School Tuesday night at Toyota Stadium, the home of FC Dallas

It was a slow start to the game as it was 0-0 at halftime, however the girls’ were able to lasso the Rangers in the end they defeated them 3-0. 

“It gives us something to build on,” head coach Kyle Beggs said. “Because I thought that last night, especially in the second half we really started clicking the way that I know that we can play.And that I have seen in spurts in other games but last night, it was for a whole half.”

This win moved the girls to a tie for fifth place in District 9-5A.

“It puts us in a position to fight for a playoff spot,” Beggs said. “We’re still seven points out of a playoff spot right now. But there’s nine games left so there’s 27 points available. If we take a majority of those I think that we have a good chance going forward.”

Shortly following the girls win, the boys also scored three goals, but they gave up three goals for a 3-3 draw with the Rangers, leaving them tied for fourth place at 4-2-3. 

“We did good offensively as we created a lot of chances,” senior Andy Wolfe said. “We need to work on starting the game strong.”
