Lady Mustangs soccer squad ends Winter Classic in shootout
MARBLE FALLS — The Marble Falls High School girls soccer team ended its own Winter Classic on Jan. 14 with a thrilling shootout.
The Lady Mustangs (0-3-1) lost 2-1 in the shootout to Canyon Lake as time ran out in a 2-2 tie. The loss was on the heels of a 1-0 defeat to Fredericksburg.
The teams decided to take the shootout attempts from the 35-yard line, which is the spot squads will take shots in the playoffs. It was the first time the Lady Mustangs attempted a shot from that distance.
Though they lost in the shootout, Lady Mustangs head coach Paulette Moczygemba said her team’s level of play was better.
