Rams Beat Schreiner 1-0 in OT! – Thursday, September 16, 2010
Friday Aug, 12 2011
The Huston-Tillotson Soccer team travelled to Kerrville to take on the Schreiner Mountaineers. The game started slow in the first half as the Huston-Tillotson team adjusted to a field of holes, a short warm up, and worry over missing midfielders Chelsea Santos and Evelyn Guzman to injury. It took them 30 minutes to find their rhythm but they started hitting their stride and taking possession over the Schreiner team. Goalkeeper Haiydee Moran dealt with only 2 saves in the first half as the steller Rams defense led by Diana Ramirez shut down the Mountaineers attack.
In the second half the Rams looked likely to score early on but tired legs prevailed and Schreiner took the edge. The Rams worked hard to get out of final time but once the whistle blew they got the break and water that they needed. A quick adjustment at break and the Rams took the field. 58 seconds in to the golden goal OT and Diana Ramirez clears the ball from the back. Helen Rios breaks away clear onto the Mountaineers keeper and heads the ball over her head and into the back of the net. And its over….
Coach Rebecca Devine said after the game, “Its clear that we are building a special team here at HT. The girls like to torture me by going to OT but I know that they they have the heart and ability to win in that situation. This is a special win for me as last year on our home field we lost to Schreiner 8-1. These freshman are really the start of a terrific program and I look forward to working with them for years to come.”
