High School Soccer: Winter Cup Day 1

Rider Sweeps Through Day 1

The 2011 Winter Cup opened up Friday at noon with a pair of games.

The #2 Rider Raiders faced #9 North Dallas at Memorial Stadium in the second meeting of the year between the two clubs coached by former high school teammates. In the first meeting, in the Frisco Invitational, Josh Hill's Raiders and George Berre's Bulldogs tied at one.

Today though, it was all about the Raiders. Ruben Flores scored 2 goals in the first half and the Raiders beat the Bulldogs 3-0.

The Raiders continued play at 4 PM against Canyon Randall. Flores got on the board again, and the Raiders rolled to a 4-0 victory over the "other" Raiders.

Rider will play Lubbock Monterey Saturday morning at 8 AM at Memorial, then they will play the team from Pool C that finishes with the same record as they did.

WFHS Gets Pair of Ties

Wichita Falls High School also played at noon and 4 PM, first taking on Midland High at McNiel Field.

The two teams played to a scoreless draw, each getting a few late chances but not many great opportunities to score.

Later the Coyotes faced Amarillo Palo Duro at MSU Soccer Stadium. The Coyotes trailed 1-0 at the break, and with just ten minutes left they still trailed by that score. Finally Jose Lugo scored, deflecting a free kick past the Dons' goalkeeper to knot the game at 1 and preserve Old High's undefeated record.

The Coyotes are now 6-0-4 on the season. They will face Mineral Wells Saturday at 8 AM at MSU, before playing the team from Pool D that finishes with the same record that they do.

Hirschi Drops Pair of Games

The Hirschi Huskies played a pair of games as well, coming up 0 for 2. First they faced Canyon High at 2 PM at McNiel, and though they kept it close, they fell 2-0 to the Eagles.

Then they faced Abilene Wylie at 6 PM at Memorial Stadium. Jimmy DuBon put the Huskies on top 1-0 in the first, but they couldn't hold on to the lead, falling 2-1.

The Huskies will face Mansfield Timberview at 10 AM Saturday at MSU, and then face the team from Pool B that finishes in the same place as they do.

Burkburnett Also Swept

The Burkburnett boys also took a pair of losses on Friday. First they took on Pampa at Memorial Stadium and fell behind 3-0 at halftime. They clamped down on defense in the second half but still fell 4-0.

Then they faced Amarillo Tascosa at 4 PM at McNiel, and fell 2-1.

They will face Copperas Cove Saturday at 10 AM at Memorial Stadium, then face a team from Pool A.
