JHS Soccer: Tribe rout Rudder in bi-district play; Maidens' season ends with 1-0 loss

CONROE — The Jacksonville Fight'n Indians had their scoring shoes on Tuesday night as the Tribe scored a flurry of goals in routing Bryan Rudder 5-0 in a Class 4A, Region III bi-district affair that was played at Moorhead Stadium in Conroe.

The red-hot — Jacksonville has now won seven of its last eight matches — Tribesmen (13-9) will now move on to face Waco University's Trojans later this week (date, location, time to be announced) in an Area match.

University stopped Lampasas in bi-district action on Tuesday.

Girls: College Station 1, Jacksonville 0

WACO — The Lady Cougars of College Station High needed only a Kinsey Rhome goal that came with 14:26 to go in the match to defeat Jacksonville 1-0 in a Class 4A, Region III bi-district match, which was played at the Waco ISD Complex Tuesday evening.

It was the only ball that Maiden goalkeeper Callie Reagan allowed to pass, as Reagan made a plethora of noteworthy saves in the match.

Jacksonville’s best chance to score came early in the night when Jasmin Rodriquez just missed depositing a chip in into the twine, after catching the Lady Cougar keeper slightly out of position.

“College Station is a brand-new high school and their (soccer) program is a new one, but they certainly didn't play like an inexperienced team,” Jacksonville head coach Kiff Wiemers said. “I was really impressed with the number of skilled players that they had.”

The Lady Cougars (20-5-1) won the District 36-4A championship and will now advance to take on China Spring in late week in Area play.

The Maidens, who are scheduled to graduate just two seniors, end the year with a 6-15-3 slate.

“We were in a rebuilding year this season,” Wiemers said. “We have the majority of our team coming back next year and they will be better players having the experience that they gained this year under their belts. The future of Fight'n Maiden soccer is indeed a bright one.”

    Jacksonville athletic director/head football coach Chris Taber said that DeJoran “D. J.” Wright, former co-defensive coordinator at Palestine High School, was a logical choice to take over as the Tribe's new defensive coordinator for several reasons — most importantly was Wright's “X's and O's” philosophy.

    One would probably be hard pressed to find any summer youth sports camp with a more streamlined approach than was found at the Jacksonville Fightin' Maiden Basketball camp, which took place this week at the Jacksonville High School Gymnasium.

    “We just asked the young ladies for two things,” Tony Harris, Jacksonville High School head girl's basketball coach, stated on Wednesday. “First, we wanted them to have fun and secondly we wanted them to learn control — to be able to control their eyes, their body and the (opposing) defender.”
