East Central hosts soccer tournament, Lady Hornets win championship
EAST CENTRAL -- after hosting a three-day soccer tournament Jan. 26-28, the East Central Lady Hornets can once again call themselves champs. The Hornets were also in action during the tournament, and made a strong showing by winning two of three games.
On the first day of the tournament, the Lady Hornets earned an impressive 6-0 win over Seguin. Meanwhile, in other girls competition, Burbank beat Floresville 3-2 in a shootout, Edison topped Odessa 6-5 in a shootout, and Roosevelt defeated Wagner 6-1 in regulation.
In day two action for the girls, East Central knocked off Burbank 2-0. Floresville also won 2-0 over Seguin, Odessa topped Wagner 5-0, and Roosevelt edged Edison 3-1. Wagner went on to beat Seguin 1-0, and Edison topped Burbank 1-0 in a shootout.
Saturday was championship day, and the girls began with a game between Floresville and Odessa for the consolation title. Things remained close, but Odessa ended up with the win, 2-0. East Central and Roosevelt then met for the tournament championship, and regulation ended in a 0-0 tie. The teams went to a shootout, and the Lady Hornets emerged victorious, 2-1.
In boys competition, Johnson and Burbank got things started on Thursday, and it was Johnson that picked up the 1-0 win. Jefferson then topped Memorial 3-0, East Central team No. 2 fell to Alice, 2-0, and the Hornet varsity team bettered Floresville 2-0.
Day No. 2 began with Burbank beating Floresville 2-0, followed by a close game between East Central No. 2 and Memorial.

Floresville later picked up a 5-1 win over East Central No. 2, and the Hornet varsity team beat up on Alice 7-1 to end tournament play.
Burbank and Memorial met in the consolation game Saturday, and regulation ended in a 1-1 tie. Burbank took the win in a shootout, though, knocking off Memorial, 4-2. The Championship game put Jefferson and Johnson on the field together, and as one might expect, the game couldn’t be settled in regulation as time expired with the score tied at 1-1.
