February 6, 2003 Page 11 The Free Press " Dustin Parker, #20, advances the ball down the field with a header against Seguin. (photo by Bob Parker) BY BRENT STRONG Staff Writer CISD - 3-5-2. To most people that's just a series of three numbers. But Hays head coach Tammi Malone said those numbers ~ere exacdy what Hays needed to give Westlake its first home defeat since 1999 by a score of 2-1 last Friday. The numbers 3-5-2 refer to a formation Malone used specifi- cally for Westlake. Three defenders in the back, five mid- fielders and two forwards. Just a day before the game, Malone used soccer bails to demonstrate the formation to her team. The team watched the demonstra- tion, practiced it and used it to perfection during Friday's game. "I was so excited after the game," Malone said. " I'm still floating after that victory. I'm so proud of our girls." The victory not only has his- torical significance for the pro- gram, but makes a huge impact on the balance of power in the district. Bowie sits atop the dis- trict standings due in a large part to its 3-1 victory over Hays ear- lier this year. Hays is in sole pos- session of second place and can take over first place if it defeats Bowie on Feb. 11. Westlake is in an unfamiliar position, in third place after last year's dominat- ing undefeated run through dis- trict. Leading 1-0 at halftime, Malone told her team to step up the intensity and be goal hungry. Hays received some insurance from senior captain Alisha Pulis with her second half goal and second goal of the game.
