What a busy weekend the Leopard Soccer program had! The Tournament season was wrapped up nicely by the boys, defeating Rowlett 2-0 in arctic weather to pick up their first trophy of the year. The tournament started Thursday with the squad defeating Rockwall 3-0. Goals were scored by Alan Beaney (Benji Merrick), Brandon White (Alan Beaney), and Tyler Loop. The second game of the day saw the boys fall to West Mesquite, conceding a early goal and not being able to recover, losing 0-1. Friday, with a renewed sense of urgency, the Leopards took on a Forney side, ultimately defeating the Jackrabbits 2-1. Max Pabin (Alan Beaney) and Cade Novicke (Diego Rodriguez) scored for the Leopards.
On Saturday, with temperatures in the 30’s and winds as high as 25 mph, the boys were able to defeat Greenville on penalties, and then Rowlett in the finals. With the wind playing such a huge part of both games, the squad was able to control the pace of each match, possessing the ball most of the game.
The Leopards are back in action this Friday, January 25 at 7:15pm, taking on Denton Ryan at Leopard stadium.
