Playing Abilene Wylie to a scoreless tie through one half Tuesday night, the Brownwood Lady Lions couldn’t keep up the momentum and suffered a 4-0 District 4-4A soccer loss at Gordon Wood Stadium.
“Right now our one weakness is consistency from big game to big game,” said Lady Lions head coach Keith Robinson. “We’ve got one of the toughest districts in the state and we’re going to face good team after good team for the next six weeks, so there can’t be any letdown.
“A lot of what we did in the win over Stephenville took a lot out of us emotionally. They were playing against some friends and teammates and it became personal and they went out there and wanted to prove a point. At some point, that can’t be all that drives you to finish a game off. If you don’t have that competitive drive day in and day out, you’re going to fall short and I think that’s where we were tonight. Tactically we can play with them”
The Lady Lions (7-6, 1-3) host Mineral Wells at 5 p.m. Friday.
Abilene Wylie 3, Lions 0
The Brownwood Lions suffered a second consecutive District 4-4A soccer setback Tuesday night, falling at home to Abilene Wylie, 3-0.
“They played hard, but the biggest thing that gets us in trouble is our maturity in big situations,” said Lions interim head coach Keith Robinson. “Overall they played well and kept fighting, which is what you’d expect them to do. They’ve always fought and always scrapped and they’re starting to play with purpose once the game gets going. There’s still one or two key moments in the game where we’re either not quite finishing or not cleaning up to make sure it doesn’t get out of hand when we’re in the middle of a dogfight.”
The Lions (1-10-1, 1-3) welcome Mineral Wells at 7 p.m. Friday.
