HT Start With A Conference Win

HT Lady Rams 4-2 Wiley College (NAIA RRAC)

The HT Lady Rams Soccer team started their Red River Athletic  Conference season on Thursday Oct 2nd vs Wiley College.

This really was a scruffy game to watch with HT not really being at their level best in the first half. Wiley took an early lead in the 3rd minute and held on til half time with HT knowing they had to raise their efforts to get that first conference win of the season.

The response in the second half was good. Lots of possession, quicker ball movement and efforts at goal resulted in chances for HT. Elizalde converted a PK to tie the game after an incident were a deliberate handball in the box led to a straight red card for a Wiley defender.

Another Wiley red card followed shortly after a tussle in the midfield led to some dangerous foul play. Wiley, now playing with 9 players, then took a shock lead in the 72nd minute with a long range free kick that dropped into the back of the net.

HT had to respond quickly and they did just that with 2 more Elizalde goals and another from Palacios giving them a 4-2 victory.

Not a great performance but a very important result to build on. HT now play their second game of the season vs LSU – Alexandria at home on Saturday Oct 4th. Please come out and support the ladies.
