Sharyland Boys Soccer Makes State Final Four

20120410_Sharyland_Bville-Porter-Boys-Playoff-Soccer-014Following back-to-back wins this weekend at the regional semi-finals Friday and the regional finals Saturday, the Sharyland Rattlers are headed to state for the first time in school history.

In Friday’s regional semi-final versus San Antonio Northside Jay, both teams were scoreless at the end of regulation play. In the first overtime Sharyland scored first, but Jay came back to tie things up. The decision came down to a tense, back-and-forth shootout, which Sharyland won 3-2.

The victory advanced the Rattlers to Saturday’s regional finals where the Rattlers defeated Brownsville Lopez 2-1. The win was a history maker for the Rattlers who have never before made the top four at state.. Both tournaments were held this past weekend at the Brownsville Sports Park.

Sharyland boys and girls, Juarez boys advance on to regional semifinals

20120410-Sharyland-033

The field is narrowing down more and more as the postseason tournament for boys and girls soccer continues. Down to 16 teams each for the boys and girls 5A and 4A tournament, three Big Six schools have managed to remain in the hunt for a regional championship and perhaps more.

First, the Sharyland Lady Rattlers officially became the program’s most decorated team after they took down Edinburg North, 4-2, on Monday night. Though they have reached this point in the postseason before in 2005, they did not do it as district champions.

“I told the girls tonight that they had become the most successful team that Sharyland has ever had,” said Head Coach JJ Lopez, following the team’s win.

That unofficial title of being the most decorated team ever didn’t come easy for Shary as North put up a fight. Benefitting from two successful penalty kicks, the Lady Cougars went into the half tied at 2-2.
