Howdy Longhorns! Welcome back to the Longhorns Sports Report! This week we cover District matchups and tournament play! Let’s dive into it! 

Coach Henry’s Varsity Squad lost a tough match against last year’s 20-6a district champs,  FB Elkins High School, 55-34. The Longhorns struggled out the gate putting up just one point in the first quarter. After that they put up a respectable comeback effort, but a rough 3rd quarter sealed the deal even after outscoring the Knights in the 4th quarter. The ‘Horns looks to move on from this game against a 10-7 FB Clements High School on Tuesday, January 10th. 

Coach Trotter’s Varsity Girls Squad dropped a tight battle to FB Elkins 53-47.  They look forward to putting this game past them when they take on FB Clements High School on Tuesday, January 10th.

Boys Soccer went 2-1 in the Katy ISD Invitational picking up wins against Scarborough HS (3-0) and O’Conner HS (2-0).  Joshua Matula, Eduardo Scotia, and Zaki Dean picked up the Longhorns’ three goals vs Scarborough, while Armani Obsasi and Joshua Matula (again) scored against O’Conner.  A great first tournament for the ‘Horns leading into their first 20-6a District match on Tuesday, January 10th, against FB Clements. This weekend the Longhorns also play in a three-game tournament against Cypress Ridge HS, Westbury HS, and Royal HS on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, respectively. 

Lady Longhorns Soccer went 1-2 in the Waller ISD Tournament with their lone win being on penalties against Clear Falls HS.  Tompkins HS continue to be a thorn in the girls’ side as the Lady Longhorns could not get their revenge for last year falling 2-0.  The Lady Longhorns are looking forward to their first 20-6a District match against FB Clements on Tuesday, January 10th. They also play tournament against Cypress Woods this weekend with other games TBD.  

We wish good luck to all of our athletes competing this week and we will cover everything going next week right here on the Longhorn Sports Report.
