The thing about the Alice Lady Coyotes’ soccer team is that they’re speedy and capable of exposing slower defenses.

They used both of those attributes Tuesday night in a 6-3 victory against Tuloso-Midway in Memorial Stadium. The win evens Alice’s record to 1-1 in the District 30-5A’s North Zone. Alice’s girls are 7-2 for the season.

Tory Cadena and Hayley Kress had a “hat trick” each, meaning they scored three goals apiece. Kress scored once off a penalty kick and once off an unassisted corner kick.

First-year goalie Jasmine Pina had nine saves.

Alice coach Cynthia Gonzalez said she was proud of the way her girls played, especially on the heels of Friday night’s 11-0 loss to 30-5A juggernaut Gregory-Portland.

“Gregory-Portland is really a notch about everyone else in the district,” she said. “I think we did well just keeping them scoreless for the first 17 minutes of the game. We put a lot of pressure on (Tuloso-Midway) tonight, and it was just a matter of finishing goals which we were able to do.”

The Lady Coyotes are on the road against Calallen Friday night. They then host Corpus Christi Ray Tuesday.
