Teams led by 'hat-tricks' by Ma and Terrell

Pete Garcia, Alice Echo-News Journal

The non-district half of the Alice Coyotes' soccer schedule wasn't the easiest, and the team struggled to a 2-6 start.

However, any difficulty the Alice boys were having wasn't evident Friday night as they began District 31-4A play with a convincing 6-1 victory over Raymondville behind a three-goal performance by Soo-In Ma.

Also scoring for the Coyotes were John Jimenez, Matt Saenz and Marcos Geromel.

Alice plays here again Tuesday against Mission.

GIRLS

Andrea Terrell had a "hat-trick" for Alice and the Lady Coyotes easily rolled to a 6-0 shutout victory against Raymondville Friday night.

Also scoring for the Lady Coyotes against Raymondville were Audrey Soliz, Madeline Brieger and Amy Acker.

Alice plays here again Tuesday night.
