The Mexia Blackcats soccer team were 1-1 in their last two games over the past week, shutting out the Lorena Leopards on the road, 9-0, but then falling to the Gatesville Hornets at home, 6-2, on Tuesday.
Against Lorena, seven different players scored for the Blackcats in the game. Leading Mexia scorer, Raul Garcia, scored two goals in the game, along with teammate Miguel Pena who also kicked in two. Christian Rivera, Elcerio Carlos, Alan Carbajal, Victor Garcia and Emilio Iwabuchi all scored one goal each for the Blackcats in the win.
Tuesday night was a different story as Gatesville loaded up in front of their net to keep the Blackcats from penetrating their defenses all game long.
The Hornets got on the board first at the 34:32 mark, then scored again 10 minutes later to go up 2-0 in the first half of the match.
