The girls’ soccer team opposed the Pine Tree Pirates on Friday, Feb. 23 with the Lady Tigers delivering a 1-0 victory.

The first half of the game was filled with several opportunities to score for both teams. Texas High attempted several goals that were either blocked or missed. The same occurred for Pine Tree with several crucial saves made by senior goalkeeper Summer Stussy. The half ended with a 0-0 score.

“Summer has been real big for us all year. We’ve had a lot of really narrow wins and really narrow losses this season, but none of those losses are because of her,” coach Jesus De Leon said. “She has always stood up and done what she needs to, and that’s what she did tonight.”

The second half consisted of the same back and forth attempts at scoring between the Tigers and Pirates. The Lady Tigers pulled ahead towards the end of the half with a goal by sophomore Mya Bowers. The team maintained their leverage for the rest of the game giving them a definitive win.

“I think the team is doing a lot better than what we were expecting,” Bowers said. “The coaches have helped us a lot more with our formation, passing, and overall making plays so that we can get a goal like I did today.”

This win was an essential factor in Texas High’s progression to the playoffs in the coming weeks. The team hopes to carry this momentum into games to come.

The next home game for the Lady Tigers is against Marshall on Tuesday, Feb. 27.
