Jackets Soccer Vaults Into A Tie For District Lead

The Rockwall Yellowjackets 11- 6A battle for first place with Mesquite was all it promised to be.  It was a tight game that saw several big momentum changes and both teams had excellent scoring chances.   Mesquite received a red card at the end of the first half and we played the entire second half with a man advantage.  Despite that the game was 0-0 at the end of regulation and the game went to a penalty kick shoot out.  All five shooters scored and Colin Burgiel made a huge save to give us the win.

A 0-0 tie, which the Yellowjackets win in shoot outs is listed as a 1-0 win.  The shoot out win gives the Jackets 2 points and Mesquite 1.  The Yellowjackets and Skeeters are now tied for 1st placeat 27 points. Friday is a must win game for the district championship, but Longview also has to beat Mesquite.
