Lady Mustangs conclude schedule

Posted

The Madisonville Lady Mustangs soccer team improved to 4-1 in district play with a 4-2 victory over Crockett on Tuesday before concluding their regular season with their senior night festivities against Palestine.

“I think the team played the ball very well amongst each other,” said Coach Travis Rasbeary. “All together we did not play selfishly at all, there were lots of combination passes and crosses, which is going to be extremely useful as we begin our playoff run. We still need to work on finishing those crosses but we are definitely looking better.”

The win was Madisonville’s second over the Lady Bulldogs this season. They also defeated Crockett 6-2 at MHS on Feb. 22.

Lakin Pennington and Brinna Sims each recorded two goals and one assist in the contest. Alyssa Espino and Mariela Garcia also added assists of their own.

The team had their second crack at top-ranked Palestine in their final regular season game of the season on Tuesday. They also honored senior members Annie Chrane, Kassandra Hernandez, Erika Lopez, Estrella Quintero-Ramirez and Samantha Vazquez. The players were honored during halftime of the JV game.

“My seniors this year have been amazing,” said Rasbeary before the ceremony. “They have been with me for two years, so they knew the expectations and helped our younger players grow and develop. It is going to be a little sad seeing these girls play their last home game, but you will definitely see the legacy they have left behind in our younger girls.”

The Lady Mustangs were missing a number of key contributors during a 10-0 loss at Palestine on Feb. 26. Regardless of the outcome, Rasbeary is prepared to use the game as a benchmark of their progress since the last time they played them as well as preparation for the looming postseason.

“We had to place some girls in positions that they had never played before,” said Rasbeary on the first matchup against the Lady Wildcats. “In several positions, it was like having first year players against girls that had been playing for years.”

Madisonville can finish no worse than second in district in what will go down as the winningest season in program history.

“We have most of our girls returning next year,” said Rasbeary. “Our program is definitely heading in the right direction and I am excited to see what the future holds for us.”

Madisonville’s first round playoff matchup will be revealed with the conclusion of the regular season.
