Page 2B SPORTS Hays Free Press February 17, 2010 Scoring outh,00arst leads Hays girls to easy victories BY JASON GORDON It might not be a bad idea to try andrget a couple of stock market tips from Hays girls head soccer coach Ryan Race. Days after predicting his team wotfl.d break out of a scoring slump that had plagued the Lady Rebels during district play, Hays scored a total of llgoals in two shutout vic- tories. On Tuesday, Hays, jumped all over San Marcos early as Natasha Ander- son scored two goals, and Stephanie Segovia and Allison Talley added a goal each to give the Lady Rebs a 4-0 halftime lead. Segovia's goal was impressive, coming from 20 yards out as she rocketed the ball into the back of the net. "She hit that shot better than most guys do," Race said. "She absolutely crushed it." Marissa McCann and Laura Vogt each added second half goals against the Lady Rattlers to help Hays cruise to the win. Against Seguin Friday night, things weren't as easy for Hays be- fore the break as the Lady Rebels got only one first half goal from Talley and led 1-0. "Pu00"ting .0 few goak makes us j like the team we're so used to being. We're 00etting in synch and oa, s.starti',00g to sbow." - Katy Mendoza, Hays Senior Hays exploded in the second half, as Lindy Mendoza and Karlie Junot added a goal each, and Anderson scored two more to lead the Lady Rebs to a 5-0 win. Hays, which improved to 4-1-1 in District 51-4A, has still only allowed one goal in league action. But Hays didn't score a single goal on offense two weeks ago in a 1-0 loss to Drip- ping Springs and a 0-0 tie with Leh- man. "It was what I expected," Race said. "This is what we've been look- ing for. Our offense is coming to- gether very well. We've changed our point of attack on offense and it's re- ally paying off." Race said a little practice time scold- ing didn't hurt Hays' cause either. "I got a little upset one day in practice," Race said. "Since then, our practices have been sharper and more intense, and it's showing up in the way we're playing during games." Hays senior Katy Mendoza said the Lady Rebs are coming together at a good time during the middle of the district season. "Putting up a few goals makes us feel like the team we're so used to be- ing," Mendoza said. "We're getting in synch and that's starting to show." Race said he feels the best is defi- nitely yet to come for his team. "I have no doubt we're playoff bound," Race said. "But we still need to improve. We're still not at the point where we're capitalizing on all our scoring chances and that's something we have to work on."

The Lobo offense also got un- corked early at Wimberley a few nights earlier in a 6-2 win over the Texans. Both wins were supposed to be home games that had to be reshuf- fled to road games because of the unplayable conditions at the Lobo soccer field which leaves Sansom a bit perplexed. "We've been trying to get our home field redone for a while now and I'm very disappointed to noth- ing has been done to accommodate our kids," Sansom said. "It makes it difficult for the players, the parents and us as coaches to not know where or when you're going to be playing. Hopefully, next year the new turf will be installed and it won't be an issue any more." Both the Lehman boys and gifts soccer teams will play the rest of their home games this season at Shelton Stadium. Lehman vaulted itself back into a tie with Hays for fifth place after Seguin beat the Rebels 2-1 on Friday night. Hays and Lehman are set to square off again on Feb. 23 at Shelton Stadium. Canyon currently holds the fourth spot in the district race behind un- beaten Dripping Springs, San Mar- cos and Seguin. "We're certainly disappointed at where we are but we know the sea- son's not over and we still have a chance to get back in this thing," Sansom said. "Some of our players are out of their comfort zones but it's important for us to keep plug- ging holes and try to make a run in the second half of the season. We just have to take it game by game and see what happens."
