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.

    The Cowboys started training camp the same week that Robert Newhouse died.
    In a way, that’s very unfortunate for Jerry. Thinking back to the “Human Bowling Ball” and the teams of that era might lead to the inevitable comparisons to today’s product on the field.

    His father was a head coach for years at Pecos High and his brother-in-law is the head football coach at DeSoto, but Lawrence Williams Jr., a man who loves coaching football, never had any ideas about being the head man.
    “I love coaching,'' said Williams as he sat at his desk in Blooming Grove, where he became the Lions' head coach this summer. “I just never thought about being the head coach and I never applied to be a head coach. With this job I can still coach.''

    More than 100 of her friends, family members and fans showed up at the Corsicana YMCA on Saturday to celebrate the national title and be on hand for a drawing for an autographed New Orleans Saints football jersey from David Hawthorne, a star defensive lineman for the Saints and Kaylana's uncle

Kerens outfielder Brent Warren was also an honorable mention pick.

  • RON MORGAN.jpg Morgan: All-star games and all-star shame

    If there is anything more useless than a political promise, it’s an all-star game. I don’t care what sport at what level. Any all-star game is simply an exhibition, a reward for being among the best (maybe). Any one of them is about as relevant as the IRS’s “dog ate my homework” excuse for losing emails.
