Three MISD soccer teams remained in the postseason entering Tuesday night., The Boyd boys and both the MHS girls and boys teams awaited their opponents in Regional Quarterfinal action. Below are scores and recaps from Tuesday’s playoff action:
McKinney Boyd Boys:
In 2012, the Broncos lost to the Dallas Jesuit Rangers 2-1 in the Regional Quarterfinal round. On Tuesday night, Boyd (18-5-2) got its revenge after defeating the Rangers 10-9 in an epic shootout after the two teams played to a 1-1 draw through regulation and overtime at Frisco ISD Memorial Stadium.
After falling behind 1-0, Broncos midfielder Raul Serrano played a ball into the box in the 67th minute. With all the confusion and bodies in the front of the net, the ball deflected off one of the Jesuit players and went into the net for an own goal to tie the match at 1-1.
Each team went back-and-forth in the shootout, but the Broncos would come away with a 10-9 advantage and seal a Regional Semifinal matchup on Friday afternoon against The Woodlands, which defeated Cedar Ridge 2-0 in two overtimes on Tuesday night.
Boyd-The Woodlands kicks off at Round Rock’s Kelly Reeves Athletic Complex, beginning at 4 p.m. Friday. It will be followed by McKinney High’s match against Kingwood at 6 p.m. The Lions also advanced by defeating North Mesquite on Tuesday night. Click here for that story.
McKinney High Girls:
Despite battling through injuries to key senior players and finishing fourth in District 10-5A, the Lionettes had made it to the Regional Quarterfinals to face a very stout and defensive-minded Sachse squad at Wylie Stadium.
In a physical match, Sachse’s freshman Cyera Hintzen scored the lone goal for the Lady Mustangs to win 1-0.
The Lionettes had won their previous two matches by scores of 1-0, but Tuesday night the offense struggled to get good offensive opportunities while a couple defensive mistakes led to the Hintzen goal.
McKinney finished with a record of 14-7 and won the 2013 Area championship.
