A pair of late free throws with less than four seconds left in the game allowed Leander to secure a 47-45 comeback win over Lehman. The game began in Lehman's favor as they played with excellent spacing, stretching Lean- der's defense out and hit- ting multiple wide-open three-point attempts. Seven of Lehman's nine first quarter shot attempts came from beyond-the-arc. Leading 13-11 going into the second quarter, Lehman continued to execute on offense in the second frame. Their passes were sharp, accu- rate and were performed with a certain level of confidence.

BY LOGAN MCCULLOUGH Preparing for future matches was the approach Lehman Lady Lobo head soccer coach Nauri Garcia took during Friday's non- district tilt with the Anderson Lady Trojans. Lehman, however, got a little more than what they bargained for as a physical Lady Trojan squad emerged with a 3-1 win at Lobo Field. But for Garcia, learning from mistakes made during the match provided the necessary adjustments for district play, which begins this week. "It stinks that we lost at home, but they gave us a good example of what we're going to face this year in the district we're in," Garcia said. "We're adjtisting to what we felt we needed to do for district matches." Communication issues were a prevalent problem the Lobos worked to rectify in the match. Garcia said the team was a "little quiet," particularly in the midfield.

BY MOSES LEOS III Hays soccer coach Ja- son Burnett only needed one word to describe his team's 3-1 loss Tuesday night to Lake Travis. "Fortitude," Burnett said. The Rebels needed fortitude- and then some - to stave offthe Cavaliers offense, which attempted 26 shots in the match. Hays was short one player when Antonio Rios was ejected via red card. When the ball dribbled past him, and only the goalkeeper stood in the way of a likely goal, Rios made a last-ditch effort to stab at the ball. He tripped the Lake Travis player instead. Rios' absence meant Hays was shorthanded for 65 of 80 minutes - more than three-fourths of the entire match. "Playing down 10 men for 70 minutes," Bumett said. "That's not a game.
