WAXAHACHIE

The Indian soccer team had scored five goals in a match just twice through eight games this season. They matched the total again at home Friday against Mansfield Legacy — in the second half alone.

Waxahachie bounced back from a Tuesday loss to Midlothian to handily defeat the Broncos at Stuart B. Lumpkins Stadium, 6-2.

"I felt it was a great team win," Waxahachie head boys' soccer coach Seth Riley said. "We didn't panic when they had possession and we began to try and let them move it more where we had help and then predicted the next play to create a turnover and catch in a counter. We were able to capitalize on a couple of goals that way." 

In total, five Indians found the back of the net Friday night, led by two goals off of the foot of senior Raymond Kennedy. He also added one of five Indian assists to finish with a team-high five points.

Rolando Nieto, who became the all-time assists leader in program history on Tuesday, added two more assists and a goal to his team-high 26 points on the season. His points total, which is comprised of team-highs in goals (8) and assists (10), has already matched his 2017 production.

Tyrus Lacey Jr, Edgar Nava and Jordan Beechum added the other three goals for the Tribe.

The win moved Waxahachie to 6-3 on the season and 2-1 in District 10-5A. The Indians return to action Tuesday, Feb. 6 on the road against (2-4-1, 0-2) Mansfield Timberview. The match begins at 7:30 p.m.
