Westwood’s Reyna Flores(#21) drills a goal past the Community keeper on THursday night in middle school soccer action.

The Lady Rockets soccer team fought to a 2 to 2 draw on Thursday evening at Dyer-Bouldin with visiting Community.  The Lady Rockets outshot the Vikqueens 11 to 4 on the match, and 5 to 1 in the last 15 minutes, but could never get the go-ahead goal.  The Lady Rockets got on the board first in the 7th minute as Reyna Flores sent a brilliant across the goal face past Community’s diving keeper.  Community tied it in the 18th minute and looked to seize the momentum, but the Lady Rockets rallied getting 2 great scoring chances that they were unable to convert sending the match to the half tied at 1.    Community took a 2 to 1 lead in the 35th on a toe punch from Anna Katherine Lemmons only to have Jessica Barrera tie it in the 40th minute on a great individual effort in front of the goal.  From that point on, Westwood controlled the tempo and time of possession but could not find the back of the net in the final 20 minutes.  With the draw, Westwood’s record stands at 1-1-2 on the season.  The Lady Rockets will play host to Fayetteville on Tuesday night in a 5:30 match at Dyer-Bouldin Field. Thunder Radio will broadcast the game live, as part of our Hometown Tuesday series beginning at 5:20 with the pregame show.
