The Eagles and Lady Eagles soccer teams have both won district which is a big feat for both of the programs. However, winning district provides some challenges that the coaches and players have to deal with. The first round by allows the teams have one week off from playing but allows for rust to develop because of not playing against other competition.

“It’s hard but the warm up games definitely help,” junior Isaac Aguilar said.”We need to play the game how we know how in order to be successful in the playoffs.”

Both the boys and the girls teams ran through district easily earning the first round bye. The teams were very successful in district with the girls only losing one and tying another to Melissa and the boys running the tables going undefeated. With the boys looking for another trip to the state tournament and the girls already tying the farthest they have ever advanced in the playoffs, these two teams seem like they’re ready for the long and grueling path through the playoffs.

“It’s difficult,” head girls coach Mark Koke said. “The warm up games help us shake of the rust but going that long just playing against yourself can get tough.”

The two teams end their lengthy by period this week with the girls playing Midlothian Heritage and the Boys playing Alvarado on Friday night. The two will have to survive against tough competition but they are ready. We will see how the two teams were able to shake off the rust, and hopefully they are able to advance.

“It has been a real struggle to stay sharp with the long layoff.” head boys coach Daniel Lundy said. “The warm up games have allowed us to get healthy and to scout our opponent in better detail.”
