United Invitational Soccer Tournament, Day 1

After weather delayed the start of the United Invitational Girls Soccer Tournament on Thursday, action finally kicked off Friday at nine in the morning.

It started with three games. Hirschi took on Amarillo Palo Duro at Memorial Stadium, and after trailing just 1-0 at halftime, fell to a 4-0 loss.

Wichita Falls High School faced state #4 Canyon Randall at McNiel Jr. High field, and showed the Lady Raiders to perhaps be a bit overrated, with a 4-0 win. They scored all of their goals in the first half and cruised to the win, which in the tournament's scoring system earned them 11 of a possible 12 points in the standings.

And #9 Rider took on Abilene High at MSU Soccer Stadium, scoring three goals in the first half and one in the second for a 4-0 win of their own, also earning 11 points. Katy Catney, Alli Brewer and Brooke Deason scored in the first half for the Lady Raiders.

Action continued in the afternoon at 1 PM, with Burkburnett facing Texas High School. The Lady Bulldogs trailed 1-0 at the half, and lost 2-0.

Also at 1 PM, at McNiel Field, Rider's JV defeated Palo Duro 2-1 to earn 8 points in the Champions Division of the tournament, and Little Elm drew with Abilene, 1-1, to earn each team 4 points.

The final games of the day kicked off at 5 PM, with the big matchup being Rider vs Old High. Last year, WFHS beat the Lady Raiders 3-0 in this tournament, but this year it was Rider's day.

After a scoreless first half mostly dominated by Rider, the Lady Raiders broke through in the second half for a 1-0 win, earning 8 points for a Day 1 total of 19 points, good for first place in the tournament's Premiere Division.

Old High's Tori Shannon excelled in net, making several great saves in the first half, including one to rob Rider's Niki Neal and leave her shaking her head.

Also at 5, Hirschi fell to Texas High 2-0 after a scoreless first half, and Rider's JV beat Burkburnett 4-0 to earn 11 more points and a Day 1 total of 19 points to lead the Champions Division.
