The Calhoun Sandies varsity soccer team earned one point in their, 1-1, tie against Corpus Christi Moody last Friday night.

The Sandies finished the season with a 10-10-3 record, and 5-8-3 in district play.

Shane McGory, the Sandies head coach, said it was great season, and he added that his team moved into a good district.

“It’s a good district that we moved into, everyone is really competitive, and it was a lot of fun to be honest.” McGory said.

Early in the game it was tie, 0-0, but a mistake in the last thirty second gave Moody a 1-0 lead at the end of the first half.

“To be honest, I thought we had the better of the play,” McGory said. “The ball came across and it looked someone missed hit,”

The Sandies redeemed their first half mistake with a goal by Yaharia Martinez to tie the game at 1-1 in the second half.

“At halftime the girls felt they were confident, it wasn’t like they were getting beat on the field.” McGory said.

McGory added that he had to see them get one, but later a goal was taking away by a controversial handball call in the second half.

The Sandies end the 2018-2019 season with a 10-10-3 record and sixth in the district standings. McGory said he had a great group of girls overall this season. He stated that seeing them stick to the game in long season, and finish sixth in the standings wasn’t bad.

Final stats of the game:

Martinez led the team with one goal.

Jasmine Dodson led the team with 10 saves.

Present May and Kamaryn Hernandez each had one assist.
