MARBLE FALLS — The Marble Falls High School girls soccer team started the 2014 season with a convincing win.
The Lady Mustangs (1-0) shut out Fredericksburg 4-0 on Jan. 10 to start their own Winter Classic tournament at Mustang Stadium.
Marble Falls took a 1-0 lead with a goal by Skylar Noack.
Then, newcomer Macy Hoover took over. She scored two goals in the second half with an assist from Megan Morgan.
“She has a great first touch,” Marble Falls head coach Trey Young said. “That really shows.”
Emma Sharp scored the final goal.
“With a tournament, you want to start strong,” Young said. “I thought we did that.”
He also credited new goalie Kelly Copeland and defenders Shelbi Wyatt, and Karina Palacio for not allowing any goals.
“With a new keeper, you want to protect her,” Young said. “I don’t think she faced a shot on goal.”
The Lady Mustangs earned the maximum goals that will count in the tournament standings. The shutout gave them an extra point. That could be crucial, Young said, because a point system is used to determine which teams play for the tournament championship.
“I thought we had a lot of players who looked good,” he said.
