The Waxahachie Lady Indians varsity soccer improved to 4-1-0 in district after they beat Arlington Seguin at home on Tuesday night, 3-0.
The Lady Indians’ three goals were scored by senior forward Mikayla Acosta (No. 23), junior midfielder/defender Michelle Fotheringham (No. 6) and senior midfielder Mackenzie Posey (No. 24).
On top of using a different defensive scheme sophomore center-mid Lexi Workman (No. 5) said.
“We played as a team and we’re trying out a new formation,” Workman said. “I think it’s working really well for us. We’re playing three in the backfield, five in the middle and then two up front, so we’re playing out wide and it’s working for us.”
This Friday the Lady Indians will have an extra day of rest, because they are having a bye, head coach Jason Venable said.
“Friday’s workout will probably be really light,” Venable said. “This will give us a week to get our players healthy.”
Coming off of the bye the Lady Indians will have a tough week ahead of them beginning Tuesday when they host the Mansfield Lake Ridge Lady Eagles, Venable said.
“When district started I think everybody looked at us, Lake Ridge and Red Oak being the top teams, but then when Red Oak beat us 3-0, I think people just kind of marked us off the list,” he said. “I think next week is a chance for us to get everybody’s attention back on us. Next week will be a dogfight and next week we can make it that way. Now, if we don’t do well next week, then maybe they were right by throwing us away, but it kind of gives us a chance to say ‘You know that was a fluke deal’ when we lost against Red Oak.”
The Lady Indians are set to kickoff at 6 p.m. against the Lady Eagles.
