Elks stay in thick of 9-5A playoff chase

Facing first-place Everman Tuesday night, Burleson’s boys soccer team gave it their all.

After playing to a 0-0 tie in regulation, Everman topped the Elks in a shoot out in District 9-5A play.

“It was a really well-played game, we played really hard,” Burleson coach Travis Hughes said. “Not a bad thing to go there and get a point, we’ve just got to keep working hard.”

Heading into Friday’s game with Centennial, the Elks (4-0-6) are in third place with 22 points. Everman leads with 24 points and Crowley is second with 22 points.

Hughes praised the play of Alex Devora, Britt Jones and Alex Heinle Tuesday night.

Centennial, which lost to Cleburne, 2-0, Friday played one of its best games of the season in a 3-2 loss Tuesday to Arlington Seguin.

“That’s the best we have played in a while,” Centennial coach Brian Boydstun said.

Alex Miranda had a goal off a Chase Epps corner. Corin Seale scored off a Joey Williams assist.
