Left: The enforcer: In the games of soccer, hockey, and other physical sports there’s always a few guys on the team that don’t take no mess. When opposing players get rough and want to play a little dirty these guys just smile and respond. Ruben Rodriguez is one of those dudes. Things got real chippy at times last Tuesday versus Jarrell with plenty of extra-curricular and the Bulldogs No.14 quickly became the enforcer to settle some visitors down.
Right: The Burnet varsity Lady Dawg soccer team saw some struggles in pre-district play but they’ve gotten off to a great start in district and are now 3-0. Pictured above varsity team member, Phebe Musasa, leaps high into the air while competing for the ball in last week’s game versus Jarrell. The Lady Dawgs won that contest, 4-1.
