PARIS — Just when they needed another shutout, they got one.
Sulphur Springs held Paris scoreless for the night and managed a first half goal which held up for a 1-0 District 19-4A soccer victory and the overall crown.
The win iced the title for the Wildcats who went to 16-3-5 for the year and a perfect 7-0 in district play with one game left.
“We were able to score with about 3:30 left in the first half,” said Andy Holt, Sulphur Springs head boys varsity soccer coach. “ Tony Bravo was fouled in the box, which gave us a penalty kick.”
Erick Robles took the shot and the senior standout did not disappoint.
“Erick Robles took the kick for us. His initial shot was blocked, but he was able to follow up the rebound,” Holt said.
The coach added, “I don't think we played our best soccer last night, but we played with a lot of effort. The hard work paid off. It was a great team victory. We have now clinched as the district champions and will wait to see who we play.”
The Wildcats close the regular season Saturday at North Lamar.
