Lady Mustangs look to rebound

Posted

The Madisonville women’s soccer team fell 10-0 to Palestine at MHS Feb. 25 to drop to 3-1 in district before beginning the second round of league play at Westwood Tuesday.

“I think the biggest thing that was exposed (against Palestine) was that we do not always start off full speed,” said head coach Travis Rasbeary. “They scored two on us early and it was very hard to come back and we found ourselves in a deep hole, which we dug for ourselves.”

The Lady Mustangs had a full week off to prepare for Westwood and the second half of district play. Madisonville defeated Westwood in their district opener Feb. 14 at MHS in a shootout after Brinna Sims evened the game with a late goal.

“The main thing we need to focus on is playing simple,” said Rasbeary. “Even in the Palestine game, early on, we were able to move the ball on them and take a few shots on goal. As the game progressed we had a few breakdowns and they were able to capitalize, which made us play a little frantic and begin forcing the ball instead of playing simple.”

The Lady Mustangs also defeated Mexia and Crockett in the first round of district to contribute to their 3-1 mark. Two of their final three matchups to conclude the season will take place at MHS.

“Overall, I think we have done quite well,” said Rasbeary. “We have definitely showed we have the ability to move the ball well, and I believe it will all come together in this second round and we will find the net more.”

Madisonville will host Mexia Friday and Crockett March 10 before concluding district play in Palestine March 17.
