This game was a blowout with MCA winning the game 7-0. The goals scored by the Mustangs were put in by junior Ava Thompson who had four, senior Sarah Krusing who had three, and freshman Tatum Barnard who had one. When asked about the team’s performance, Coach Wendy McDowell shares her thoughts saying,”We played one of our best half’s the second half of the match. Which is very exciting with the timing of our play as we begin our run into the playoffs. If the girls continue to play as one unit , communicate and use the gifts and talents the Lord has blessed each one of them with, then I am feeling very good about our run to state!” This game ended up improving their record to 9-1 on the season. Their next game will take place at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, February 13, away against Irving Highlands.

On the contrary, the boys did not end up securing the win as they took a loss 6-2. The goals scored by the boys were both put in by junior Liam Corley. After the game, Corley shared his thoughts on how the team played saying, “We played a great game and fought hard to the last whistle. Also, we need to improve our ability to finish and put the ball in the back of the net.” This game changed their record to 6-7 on the season. Their next game will take place at 3:30 p.m. on Monday, February 13, at home against Temple Christian of Fort Worth.
