CHS Soccer: Lady Indians once again deny Lady Tigers

ENNIS — A balmy 90 seconds of first half play decided the outcome of the match between rivals Corsicana and Waxahachie as the Indians took full advantage of some uncharacteristic goalkeeping to win a third-round playoff game.

The Indians scored twice in the first half on their way to a 3-1 Region II sectional win.

On a bitter cold night in Ennis, the Lady Tigers struggled to keep their composure on the ball and left too many gaps when didn’t have possession. It was, however, the Lady Tigers who started brightest, with three chances in the opening 10 minutes. But the Indians took the lead when a deep cross played in from the right was knocked out by the Corsicana defense and Michelle Fatheringham bundled the ball home to put the Indians up 1-0.

Less than 90 seconds later, it was 2-0 when Elida Hinojosa in the Corsicana goal spilled what looked like a routine cross shot and Tierney Thomison played into an empty net.

The Lady Tigers came out all guns blazing in the second half, and just eight minutes in Mackenzie Taylor played an eye-of-the-needle-through ball for Elizabeth Castenada, who dearly obliged by running through and burying a first-time shot into the far post to send the crown wild. It made the score 2-1, and gave Castenada 28 goals for the season.

Thomison delivered the ball of the game when she played a pin-point cross into the box that was headed over the bar. Taylor then went straight up to the other end and played Castenada into space but she fired just wide.

Johana Zagal then shot a powerful free kick on target that the Waxahachie keeper did well to hold. Castenada then powered a thundering drive just over the woodwork.

The Indians made it 3-1 with 15 minutes remaining as another cross from the Waxahachie right found its way to Mackenzie Posey whose shot was too powerful for Hinojosa in the Lady Tigers’ goal to keep out.

The teams played out a couple of half-chances each as the game entered its final stages, but the Indians held on comfortably to advance.

  • GC Basketball/Baseball: Mildred's Connor Hill sees life clearly

    There was never any doubt for Connor Hill, never any question about what he would do or how he would do it.
    Sure, there was that meeting with his mother and father and talks with the doctor when he was 10, talks and meetings that came accompanied with worry and concern.
    But never from Connor.
    He just never dwelled on the fact he played sports with one eye. He didn't worry or talk about it when he was 10 and he never talked about it at Mildred High, where Hill emerged as a star on the basketball court and baseball diamond.
