Joshua

The Joshua Lady Owls and Burleson Lady Elks played to a 1-1 tie in a non-district match on Friday night.

“It was a pretty wild game,” Joshua Coach Jeff Brooks said. “We got a red card with about 32 minutes left in the game, so we played the last half hour and actually tied it when we were a man down and hung on. I’m really proud of the girls. They played with a lot of heart. Both teams did and it was a great game.”

Payton Boyd scored the Joshua goal, which was assisted by Lori Gaskill.

The Lady Elks won in a shootout, but in non-district and non-tournament play the result is recorded as a tie.

The tie moves Joshua’s record to 6-1-2.

The Lady Owls next play at Waco on Friday while Burleson opens district play at 6 p.m. on Tuesday in Crowley.

The Joshua junior varsity team beat Burleson’s JV 6-0.



Centennial

The Centennial Spartan boys soccer team defeated North Crowley, 2-0, on Friday.

The Spartans open District 16-4A play hosting Mansfield Lake Ridge at 6 p.m. on Tuesday.
