The Blackcats suffered a heartbreaking 10-0 loss to the Center Roughriders Thursday evening in Athens, thus ending a hard fought season for the Mexia varsity soccer team.
Center scored the game’s first goal at the 28:35 mark in the first half and added a second goal a little over three minutes later to go up 2-0.
The Roughriders (17-4-2) took advantage of Mexia’s nearside defense to cross shots in front of the net, scoring four more times before the end of the first half to make it 7-0.
Mexia regrouped in the second half, playing better defense and attacking the ball more, but Center used their speed to convert turnovers into two second half goals to go up 9-0 with 31:16 remaining in the match.
