Soccer coach pleased with girls’ progress


The Lady Bulldog soccer team has been busy with numerous games over the past week. Burnet’s girls traveled to Georgetown on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, Jan. 7-9, for their first tournament play of the year.

In the tournament opener on Thursday Burnet played Rice Consolidated and the Lady Dawgs claimed a big, 6-1 victory.

Burnet did a great job passing the ball around and had five different players score at least one goal. Caty Crow led the offensive attack with two goals scored. Lainey Rye, Caroline Valencia, Phebe Musasa, and Kziesna Tones each added one score to Burnet’s total. Assists were credited to Reagan Shipley, Julie Suazo, and Harlee Bartlett.

On Friday, Jan. 8 the girls played a tough Lorena team and lost in a shut-out, 2-0.

On Saturday team green played Vista Ridge and once again fell short, 2-1. Crow scored Burnet’s only goal off an assist by Shipley.

Burnet goalie Juliet Morales did a nice job during the tournament with numerous saves.

“Despite the two losses we played good soccer and got better every single day,” said head coach Kim Myhre.

On Tuesday the Lady Dawgs hosted Taylor and got themselves back in the win column with a 2-0 victory over the visiting Ducks. Burnet’s first goal of the night was netted by Crow. Burnet took a 2-0 lead off a Valencia goal assisted by Rye. That win brought Burnet’s overall record to 4-2.

On Friday night the Lady Dawgs hosted a very good undefeated Hyde Park team. Burnet dropped the contest, 2-1. Crow scored Burnet’s lone goal off an assist by Shipley.

Tuesday Burnet played on the road at Canyon Lake, and this Friday there will be a varsity only contest versus Wimberley with a 6:00 p.m. start. District play will begin on Tuesday, Jan. 26 with Burnet hosting Little River Academy.
