The Beeville girls hadtwo more games in district as of Monday but no one is close to the Lady Trojan’s 7-0-1 record. Pleasanton stands at 4-2-2 and the best they could do would be a six win district mark. The district title is the second in a row for the Lady Trojans.
“It was nice to clinch our district championship on Friday with two games left. It was a very good team effort,” said Lady Trojan head coach Johnny Gonzales.
The Beeville ladies got things going right away against Harlandale on Friday. Forward Morgan McKinney scored with just a little more than four minutes run off the clock in the first half. Natalie Elder got the assist on the play.
Elder made it 2-0 with a breakaway at the 11:44 mark of the first half. Her kick curved past the Indian goal keeper and into the back of the net in the far left-hand corner of the goal.
The Lady Trojans got a third first half score as Helen Sierra angled in a kick from out front a minute later at the 10:03 mark for a 3-0 Beeville lead.
McKinney had the final Lady Trojan goal early in the second half to put Beeville in cruise control thee rest of the way for a 4-0 win.
The defensive play was also a key as the Lady Trojans recorded their 16th team shutout to improve to an impressive 18-0-2 record on the season. It was also keeper Randi Maupin’s 13th shutout of the year.
Every Harlandale offensive push was turned away on Friday with Carissa Elizalde clearing the ball all over the field for the Lady Trojans. She had good help form sister Victoria Elizalde, Alisa Patterson, Katelynn Wiileford and Maupin.
“The defense played great,” said Gonzales.
The offense clicked with good games from all those that scored along with Jade Trevino, Mary Larakers, Heather McKinney and Tori Munoz according to coach Gonzales.
Heather picked up two assists on the night from her left wing position.
The Lady Trojans are scheduled to travel to San Antonio on Tuesday night to play McCollum and then will close out the regular season on Friday night with a home date with Floresville.
“I am impressed with how the girls have picked up their level of play when someone has been hurt or ill. It was another good 4-0 win and it’s good to see more than one goal in a game and good to see more than one player scoring,” Gonzales said.
