LADY RAMS QUALIFY FOR RRAC TOURNAMENTThe HT Lady Rams secured a spot in the RRAC Tournament Tuesday with a 2-1 win over LSU Alexandria. The Lady Rams went ahead in the 40th minute when Katia Castellanos picked up the ball on the half way line and found Cristina Montealvo in space, Montalvo took the ball in stride and as LSUA backed off struck a rasping left footed drive in to the top corner from 35 yards out. It was the least the home side deserved after a dominant first half display which saw Amalia Ruiz and Kimberlin Palacios both go close to breaking the deadlock. LSUA came out fighting in the second half, having adjusted to a 3-5-2 formation during the interval, pegging the Lady Rams back for the first 10 minutes of the half with good energy and limiting space in the middle 1/3. However the more LSU pressed for the equalizer the more things started to open up for HT on the counter attack and Palacios, Ruiz, Castellanos and Loyola all posed significant threats before the game winning goal came in the 65th minute. Castellanos again combined with Montalvo to release Palacios wide right, Palacios jinked past her marker before serving an excellent ball in to the box, which was met by the advancing Morgan Seeliger who rocketed her header in to the far bottom corner. The Rams back four was excellently marshaled by Victoria Elizalde, who won everything in the air and on the ground all afternoon, continuing her, and the teams, excellent form from Saturdays 0-0 double overtime tie at top seeded St. Thomas. LSU did pull one back in the 87th minute, but HT held on for a well deserved win and advanced to the RRAC Tournament for the third consecutive year, despite playing all year with between 10 and 13 fit players.
