Lady Tiger soccer team advances to Regionals

By Wayland D Clark

Dripping Springs girls soccer, 24-0, will meet Gregory Portland, 19-4-1 in a Region IV Semifinal game set for Friday, April 8 at 6:30 at Cabaniss Soccer Fields in Corpus Christi. A win would match the Lady Tigers against Boerne Champion or McAllen in the Regional Final at 2 p.m. on Saturday. The winner will move on to the UIL State Tournament, April 13-16 in Georgetown. 

Dripping Springs advanced with a 6-0 shutout, its eighteenth of the season, against Cedar Park in the Regional Quarterfinal game at House Park in Austin on April Fool’s Day last Friday. 

It’s like déjà vu all over again for senior Faith Wylie who went to Regionals in Corpus Christi in her freshman year, “It went to PKs (penalty kicks) both games and we beat Boerne to go to the State Semifinals,” Wylie said. “We’re into the tougher games now and a lot of teams break down under the pressure. I feel like we just mold together even more as one team, one family and one goal.” 

A solid defense and goalkeeper Caroline Dill, a junior and last year’s 5A MVP in the State Championship game, kept Cedar Park scoreless for eighty minutes. Dripping Springs (24-0) has outscored opponents 129-7 this season.

Freshman sensation Ellie Hodsden scored a pair of goals and sophomore sister Taylor scored a goal, as did Riley Sisson, Chloe Fredenburg and Sophia Nuccio.
