MARBLE FALLS — The Marble Falls High School girls soccer team lost to Lake Travis 7-0 March 20.

The Lady Cavaliers took a 4-0 halftime lead en route to the win.

Still, Marble Falls head coach Paulette Moczygemba said the Lady Mustangs (2-14-3, 0-8) didn’t play their worst but didn’t play their best either.

“We had opportunities,” she said. “Attacking wise, had we been able to generate more opportunities we would have been able to score.”

Marble Falls needed to control the ball better, she said, and keep it on the Lake Travis side of the field, but that didn’t happen enough. That’s because the Lady Cavs used their bodies to push the Lady Mustangs for field position.

“It made it difficult to transition and create on offense,” she said. “We’ll work on that.”

The Lady Mustangs have two games left in their season with a road game at Leander Rouse, 1501 CR 271 in Leander, 7:30 p.m. March 23.

Moczygemba said she is looking for her players to implement what they’ve been practicing in the contests. She wants the athletes to shift according to where the ball is located on the field, especially on the defensive side.

“We’ll continue to work on defensive shaping,” she said. “We’ll work on going on transition as well.”
