BY RAFAEL MARQUEZ sports@haysfreepress.com The Hays Rebels boys soccer team shut out the La Grange Leopards Fri- day with a 5-0 win. From the moment the opening whistle blew, the game was completely dominated by the Hays Rebels. Omar Rangel opened the score- board early for the Rebels with a goal barely two and a half minutes into the game. Four and a half minutes later, Rangel would score again, making the score 2-0, only seven minutes into the game. La Grange suffered from some very sloppy passing in the opening half. They never quite seemed to get their offense organized enough to mount an offensive drive against Hays. It would not be until there were less than 17 minutes left in the first half that La Grange's Marco Cerda would be able to take a shot at the Hays goal post. Cerda's shot went wide and See REBEL BOYS SOCCER, pg. 2B PHOTO BY CYNDY SLOVAK-BARTON Lehman senior Jules Hernandez tags an Akins baserunner out at third in what turned out to be an exciting game, with the Lady Lobos winning 15-11.

That thought was: something's got to give. On one side, you had Brack- enridge, which entered the game winning 8 of their last 9, utilizing a powerful offensive at- tack that averages 60 points per contest.
