HIGH SCHOOL SOCCER: Opening day split

AHS gives up hat trick during loss to Corsicana

Athens — The Athens Lady Hornets opened up the Lady Hornet Cup Tournament with a 1-1 finish at Bruce Field.

Coach Dedra Jackson’s squad (3-2) lost their final game on Thursday afternoon 4-1 to the Corsicana Lady Tigers.

The Lady Hornets came out of the gate aggressive and took an early 1-0 lead on a goal by Brielle Patton past a diving Elida Hinojosa at the 18:50 mark of the opening half.

Corsicana forward Makenzi Taylor then went to work scoring a hat trick as her first goal came off a corner kick with one minute remaining for the equalizer at 1-1.

Taylor then opened up the scoring in the second half off a deflection  for the 2-1 lead.

Corsicana spent most of the second half of the game in Lady Hornets territory as AHS was unable to get any momentum headed their way.

Following a run inside the Lady Hornets penalty box, Taylor scored her final goal of the game on a penalty kick.

Elizabeth Castaneda capped off the scoring for the Lady Tigers with a blast at the 14 minute mark to seal up the win at 4-1.

Athens will return to the Bruce Field pitch Friday morning with a 8:30 a.m. match against the Kaufman Lady Lions.

They will then wrap up pool play action against Lufkin Hudson at 2:45 p.m.

In their opening game of the tournament, AHS scored a 2-1 victory over Palestine.

Myranda Baumgartner and Gabby Lawyer scored the goals for the Lady Hornets.
