Unicorns were off to a 30 lead and on the verge of a blowout in this first round of the state playoffs The home team cooled off the rest of the way on Friday at Unicorn Stadium and luckily for Hays it wasnt more lopsided They scored early and Mathis said shaking his head We knew we were up against a more talented team Qur plan was to substitute often and hopefully stay close in the second half It took a lot of life out of us when they got those three goals right Making matters more difficult Mathis had to bfieorhis forrrier who scored the Unicorns second goal at the 18 minute mark Burke a freshman midfielder transferred from Hays to New Braunfels during the sec ond semester when his family moved to NBISD It was a sad day to see him Mathis said When he told me last Jan only cried for a week before I got over The Rebels were ready to weep early when Andy Holtman got the offense in gear kicking a pinpoint pass to forward Kyle Reneau who headed the ball into the center of the net for a

substitu tions and giving several players playoff experi ence After struggling offensively in a 00 tie with Alamo Heights last week the Unicorns worked successfully on pushing the ball to the sidelines and opening up the middle We wanted to attack their weakness which was the Gosa added Weve worked on getting outside and thats what helped us The Unicorns also won a coin toss and will play Austin Bowie on Tuesday night at 7 at Unicorn Stadium to scoring was a direct kick that sailed high toward the crossbar and was blocked by backup goalie Jacob Kearny with 1 13 left in the game

in which the Rangers took 15 shots on goal in the opening 20 minutes only to be denied by Rattler goalie Sarah Maroney OReilly said she gave her players some words of advice in the locker room I told them it could be their last 40 minutes of the season or they could keep it OReilly said They just had to come out and keep The Rangers scored two goals in the opening four minutes of the second half Gibson took a pass from Jennifer Ealy and kicked a rocket shot past Maroney to make it 10 at the three minute mark A minute later Gibson again took an assist from Ealy this time placing the shot over
