Exciting wins for soccer


The soccer teams started district play last week and Burnet’s varsity girls have a 2-0 record after two exciting wins. On Tuesday the Lady Dawgs were tied 2-2 with Little River Academy after regulation of the district opener. Burnet’s goals were netted by Caroline Valencia and Phebe Musasa both off assists by Lainey Rye.

After double overtime periods the two teams were still tied so the game went to a penalty shootout. Caty Crow, Valencia, and Kaycie Banton all three made their kicks. On the flip side Burnet goalie Juliet Morales had three amazing saves giving Burnet a hard-fought win in their district opener.

On Friday the Lady Dawg soccer team played Florence and recorded their second 18-4A win, 2-0. Burnet’s goals were scored by Karla Rodriguez and Crow off of Valencia assists.

The girls played at Gatesville on Tuesday and will play at Lake Belton on Friday. They will return to Bulldog Stadium on Tuesday, Feb. 9 when they host Jarrell.

The varsity boys soccer team dropped their district opener on Tuesday to Little River Academy, 4-0.
