Page 2B Sports Hays Free Press February 8, 2017 oser Lehman Lobo senior guard Megan Zuniga lifts a shot over a group of Lake Travis Cavalier defenders Friday at the Lobo Den. The Lobos closed their 2016 home schedule with a 66-51 loss to Lake Travis. Lehman closed the season Tuesday with a 58-34 loss to the Westlake Chaparrals. PHOTO BY CHAPARRAL PHOTO Lobo Soccer Continued from pg. 1 B Lake Travis' Daniel Tamkin scored the game's first and only goal with about nine minutes left in the first half. The initial shot attempt was blocked by Lehman's goalkeeper, but Tamkin was able to track the deflection and convert the opportunity. "Their goal counts on the scoreboard, but it's one of those that I don't really call a real goal," Baker said. "I mean, it was a real goal but it wasn't an earned goal - it was off the keeper's hands and we missed a slide tackle." From there, Lake Travis was unable to build a large deficit it's accustomed to. There was an opportunity later in the first half to open the game up when the Lobos goalkeeper collided with a teammate, leaving the ball dribbling towards a Lake Travis player. The result was a goal, but the officials waved it off because he was offsides.

"We're still young. teams, compared to 20 or more We're still getting there." Rebel Basketball Continued from pg. 1 B "She did this to us the first game." Hays saw its double- digit lead dwindle in the third quarter, when Cardano-Hillary poured in 12 consecutive points to shave the deficit to a single point. And while Cardano- Hillary was mounting a comeback single-hand- edly, Hays lost its lead- ing scorer for the game when Gabby Bosquez picked up her fifth foul in the third quarter. Vista Ridge finished the quarter on an assist from Cardano-Hillary to Ansley Herrin, giving the Rangers their first lead of the game. By then, the damage was done. Hays was reeling, Bosquez was fouled out and Choon- Hee Chae was sitting at four fouls entering the final period. Chae earned her fifth foul later in the fourth quarter on a drive from Cardano-Hillary, joining two other starters twho fouled out. Preuss said Tuesday night's game was the first instance in which three of his starters fouled out in the same game. "It hurts when you foul out three starters in the game," Preuss said: "You need players like that on the floor and we hung tough." Before the Cardano- HiUary show began, the Rebels jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter. An 0-of-5 mark on 3-pointers in the first quarter prevented Hays from increasing its lead. "We played hard, "We were playing well. We played them tough, played an eight-point game just like the last time. It was a good effort." -Danny Preuss, Lady Rebel coach jumped on them pretty early," Preuss said. "We were playing well. We played them tough, played an eight-point game just like the last time. It was a good ef- fort." Vista Ridge com- pleted its regular season with 27 wins and five lo ses, along with a share of first place in the district. Hays enters the playoffs with a 20-13 re- cord and a 7-5 showing in district play. With seven wins in its last 10 games, Preuss said Hays is playing its best basketball of the season. But Cardano-Hillary didn't really seem to mind. "Overall an eight- point game to the 19th-ranked team in the state isn't too horrible but I thought we had a chance to win," Preuss said. "We are peaking at the fight time and that's only gonna help us for the playoffs." Lady Rebel Soccer Continued from pg. 1B Sheely scored the game's first goal at the 13:43 mark of the first half. Hood then rectified her penalty kick miss by powering her way to a goal with eight minutes left in half to take a 2-0 lead. Despite her 4-foot, 10-inch frame, Hood used a high-intensity approach to power her way past defenders. Hood scored two goals Friday, which added to her combined total of five goals scored in the last two matches. Holcomb said Hood has a work rate "greater than any other soccer player I've ever seen" and there's "no ball she won't chase down." "I like to run around and do the best I can to pressure people enough to give up the ball, or run around enough to get the ball for my own team," Hood said. "When you get pushed, you have to push back a little." Hays' defense kept the Lion offense off the scoreboard for the ma- jority of the match. Hol- comb said the Rebels limited the play of the Leander forward and controlled the midfield. Hays led 2-0 at half- time and extended its lead to 3-0 following a goal in the 56th minute. Leander responded with a quick goal to cut Hays' lead to 3-1, but Hood lofted a shot over the Lions' goalkeeper for the team's fourth and final goal with two minutes left in the match. Holcomb said the Rebels are "coming along" following a chal- lenging pre-district schedule that included taking fourth place at the Bryan/College Sta- tion invitational. "We had a good preseason where the defense had chances to play against good teams and they found each other and they trust each other," Holcomb said.
