On Tuesday, Hays also beat Clemens 8-2, maintaining their unbeaten season at 4-0. Lady Lobos Soccer Continued from pg. 1B aided many of Lehman's coun- ter attacks. But despite the myriad of shots, the Lady Lobos could not find the back of the net early in the game. Persistence by Lehman paid off, as Bailey scored the first goal with one minute left in the first half, giv- ing the Lady Lobos a 1-0 half- time lead. In the second half, the Lehman offense's constant forward movement provided ample scoring opportunities. From the 38-28 minute in the second half, Tamayo, Bai- ley and Soto found the back of the net, with all of the shots occurring from long range, or off set pieces. Before anyone could blink, the Lady Lobos' lead ballooned to 4-0. "Mariah (Tamayo) and Pressley (Bailey) see the field really well," said Soto, who ap- plauded the gameplay of her teammates. "They are both an asset to our midfield. Both players play great on the offen- sive and defensive side." Giddings concocted two late goals, but the Lady Lobos' lead proved to be too much. Tamayo and Soto capped off the night with stellar goals from long range, allowing Leh- man to cruise to a big win. "(This victory) was an effori from all 11 players on the field tonight," Bailey said. "We all did a great job on offense and defense." The Lobos' win was also in- strumental for Soto, who now has 21 goals this season, tying the Lady Lobo single season goal mark. "This (game) was a big one for me. It tied Domin- ique (laquez) season scoring record," said Soto. "Soccer is about taking risk. I took that risk, as did Mariah (Tamayo) and Pressley (Bailey). We took many long shots and succeed- ed on them." Lehman's win also marked the final home game for five graduating seniors. For Leh- man head coach Nauri Garica, the evening was bittersweet. "It is a beautiful memory when you share a moment like that with athletes you spend so much time with. I saw those girls every day for four years," he said, adding, "We do nt think of senior night as a good~ bye. Rather, we think of it as a celebration." Making Memories g Securing Futures!

Junior midfielder Fabian Mantilla was fouled just outside the penalty box, and freshman Diego Garcia stepped up and blasted a free kick over three Lockhart defenders into the"upper 90" of the goal to give the Lobos a 2-0 lead.
