You can tell it’s soccer season when the players and trainers resting along the sidelines break out the hats, gloves, blankets and heavy coats in an effort to keep warm. These five young ladies were cheering on the Lady Trojan varsity soccer team on Tuesday night and fighting off the chill of 40-degree weather and a good bit of wind that made it feel like 20 below – at least to them and the photographer. The Lady Trojan soccer team won’t be playing again in Beeville until Feb. 15 when district foe Pleasanton visits the A.C. Jones High stadium.

BEEVILLE — The Lady Trojan varsity soccer team had no trouble with the visiting Tuloso-Midway Cherokees on Tuesday night as the Beeville girls posted a 4-0 win.

“The ladies played extremely awesome last night with great character and attitude. We have been playing short-handed for numerous reasons this year, but it hasn’t stopped us from moving forward and trying to reach our goals,” said Lady Trojan head coach Don Ledezma.

The biggest problem was trying to keep warm as the cold, north wind kept temperatures down and the crowd bundled in all sorts of winter attire.

The Lady Trojans scored three goals in the first half as Helen Sierra picked up two of the three. Niki Longoria added the third goal on an assist from Heather McKinney.

The second half was a little less productive as the Cherokees tried to get back in the match. The Beeville defense, led by Taylor Castillo, kept the T-M forwards away for Beeville keepers Carmen Rojas and Emma Downing.

The final goal of the match came when Castillo powered in a direct kick from a few yards outside the box on the right side of the goal keeper. The T-M keeper looked to be in position, but the cold ball went past her and into the net for a 4-0 Beeville lead.

“Even though we didn’t score as many goals in the second half, I still feel the second half was our better showing. Better possessions, communication and movement off the ball,” Ledezma said.

“We must continue to display those three attributes to our game more and more if want to continue our success.”

The Lady Trojans sport a 4-1 record on the season and are competing the Corpus Christi ISD tournament this weekend. Their next home game won’t be until Feb. 15, when district foe Pleasanton visits Veterans Memorial Stadium.
