HS Soccer: Rider Boys Beat WFHS, Girls Draw

It was rivalry night at Memorial Stadium Friday night as Wichita Falls High School and Rider met on the soccer pitch.

The boys game was first, and Ryan Castelli scored the game's only goal to give the Raiders a 1-0 win over the Coyotes, their 12th straight in the rivalry.

It was WFHS's first loss of the season as they fall to 12-1-4.

The Raiders moved to 14-2-2 with the win, which puts them alone in first place in District 9-4A heading into their game next Friday night against Gainesville at GWFSA Field E.

In the second game of the night, the Lady Raiders controlled play for much of the first half but were unable to take the lead.

The second half was much the reverse story, as the Lady Coyotes had the better of the action but couldn't convert, leading to a scoreless tie.

Payton Fookes, the area's leading scorer, had the best chance of the half, a left-footed shot in the second half that beat Hannah Huerzo but rang harmlessly off the crossbar.

The Lady Raiders move to 14-3-3 overall, while the Lady Coyotes are now 16-1-1, with their only loss coming by a 1-0 score to Rider in the United Invitational.

Hirschi Boys Get Road Draw

The Hirschi Huskies were on the road in Gainesville Friday night and earned a 1-1 draw.
