Lady Mustangs impress on Senior Night

Posted

The Madisonville women’s soccer team improved to 5-2 in district play with a 5-3 victory over Crockett March 10 at MHS on Senior Night, their final matchup before school activities were put on hold due to the Coronavirus.

Prior to the game, the Lady Mustangs celebrated the careers of seniors Brinna Sims, Brianna Abad, Diana Rodriguez, Maria Ayala, Mariela Garcia and Alexandrea Gonzalez. The individuals were introduced on-field with their families.

“In one word, senior night was amazing,” said head coach Travis Rasbeary. “These young ladies are so key to our program and the success we have had over the years. It was an emotional night for me as I have had many of these seniors in class and have grown quite close to them over the last three years I have been here.”

The Lady Mustangs secured their fifth district win during the game itself, their second over Crockett. Sims scored all five goals in the win while Ayala, Abad, Teliyah Matthews and Alyssa Espino recorded assists.

“The game itself was probably one of the most exciting games I have ever had the privilege to coach,” said Rasbeary. “I think our cohesiveness showed as we were able to exploit the holes in our opponent. (Sims) had the game of the season, scoring all five of our goals.”

The win put the Lady Mustangs in second place in district play with just one regular season game remaining on the schedule. The district finale at Palestine was originally set to take place Tuesday, but is tentatively rescheduled for April 3 at 7 p.m.

“(The Coronavirus) is definitely going to impact every team,” said Rasbeary. “It has put the season on timeout and every team is going to have to figure out how to adjust and make up for the missed practices and games. Our coaching staff has relayed to the girls that, although we do want them to continue their development during this extended break, our main concern is their health and well-being.”

The Bi-District playoffs, which were originally scheduled for March 26-28, have been tentatively rescheduled by the UIL for April 14.

All UIL activities are currently on hold until March 29.
