Texas City 2, Santa Fe 0
In a physical match, the Texas City Lady Stings scored late to out-muscle the Santa Fe Lady Indians in district action Friday night at Stingaree Stadium.
After going roughly 60 minutes into the match with no goals (but plenty of opportunities), the Lady Stings finally broke through with a score.
Ashleigh Rivas played a beautiful through ball to Yessenia Peraza, and after Peraza’s shot on goal was deflected off the Santa Fe keeper, freshman phenom Amanda Valdez capitalized by literally running with the ball into the back of the net.
Shortly after, the second goal came on a breakaway by Peraza, who scooped up a loose ball after a collision. Taking the ball down the left side, Peraza was able to cut in on her right foot and shoot the ball into the bottom right corner of the goal.
Lady Stings head coach Lindsay Best said her team played with added aggression, determined to get ahead in the district standings.
“They were very much deserving of the win tonight,” Best said.
Up next, Texas City (2-0 in district) travels to Galena Park for a tough road match 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Clear Creek 2, Clear Springs 1
The Clear Creek Wildcats continued their strong performance on the pitch Friday with a victory over Clear Springs at Challenger Columbia Stadium in both teams’ district opener.
Clear Springs took early control of the game with crisp passing and aggressive play on the ball and Clear Creek had the fend off several opportunities at goal.
Once the Wildcats got their feet under them, the play turned and Clear Creek was able to tally the first goal in the 28th minute. After pressuring a pass back to their own keeper, an errant clearance resulted in a one touch laser from 25 yards by senior midfielder Kaden Lovett.
The teams continued to play hard as the rain started to fall in the second half. Clear Springs was issued their third yellow card of the game as Lovett was taken down just outside the penalty box. Lovett took the set play shot and curled it around the wall to force a save by the keeper; however, he was unable to corral the rebound and Clear Creek’s senior Dylan Hinds buried the rebound to put the Wildcats ahead 2-0 in the 56th minute.
Clear Springs increased pressure as the time dwindled and was able to net their only goal 10 minutes later. After being awarded a corner kick, Chargers defender Seth Porter was able to pound in a failed clearance by Clear Creek.
Creek’s back three of senior Andre Caro, junior Will Norsworthy and senior Alex Sanchez was able to shut down Chargers offense to secure the win. Additional notable play came from Wildcats senior David Perez and Clear Spring’s Steven Serighou.
Both teams are back on the pitch for more district action 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Clear Creek hosts Clear Brook (1-0-0 in district), and Clear Springs travels to Alvin (1-0-0).
