HS Boys Soccer: TWCA's comeback attempt falls short against HCYA
THE WOODLANDS, TX -- The Woodlands Christian Academy boys soccer team fell to the HCYA Hurricanes for the second game in a row on Tuesday night. The Warriors came back twice but two late goals gave HCYA a 4-2 win on the road.
Tuesday’s game started with both sides finding a few decent chances throughout the early part of the first half. After nearly opening the scoring with a shot that hit the post, the Hurricanes would finally find the back of the net in the 25th minute by catching TWCA sleeping on the counter-attack.
TWCA continued to apply pressure in the attacking third and found their first goal of the game with seconds remaining in the first half. Stratton Butaud sent a difficult ball into the box that gave HCYA’s keeper some trouble. The keeper was unable to corral the ball and Ezekiel Jurado pounced on the loose ball and tapped it into an empty net to tie the game at 1.
The Warriors would need to find another equalizer after HCYA took the lead again in the 57th minute. Butaud supplied that equalizing goal with a nice run and an even better finish into the bottom left corner of the net in the 75th minute.
However, the Hurricanes were determined to come away with a win and netted two more goals in the closing seconds of the game to secure the two-goal victory over TWCA.
After starting the season with an unbeaten 3-0-1 record, the Warriors have dropped to 3-2-1 heading into district play.
