Soccer: Wildcats shutout Pittsburg, 2-0

PITTSBURG — The Wildcats registered their second consecutive shutout of the soccer season, downing Pittsburg 2-0 here Friday in tournament competition.

“Adrian Correa scored the first goal and was assisted by Juan Juarez. It was a very nice goal that came about 15 minutes into the game,” said Wildcat head soccer coach Andy Holt. “We played a ball to our forward and he knocked it back to one of our midfielders who then played a one touch pass to Juarez running down the line.  Juarez then sent a nice cross backside to Correa who headed the ball in the back of the net.  We played well in the first half, creating several opportunities, but only finishing the one.”

Lady Cats swing for district title

Today is a date David Carrillo circled on his calendar a long time ago.

Carrillo, the Sulphur Springs head softball coach, gets to hold the first practice with his team according to UIL rules and regulations.

The Lady Cats went 24-11 in 2009 and were co-champions of District 13-4A. Carrillo feels that this year is a good time to complete the unfinished business of taking the title and making a  run in the playoffs.

Last year the team fell 9-0 and 12-4 to Waco Midway in the area round of the Class 4A playoffs.
