Jags continue strong play, tie Hebron

The Flower Mound boys soccer team continued the strong play that they have shown in the second round of district playing the favored Hebron Hawks to a 2-2 tie.

The Jags soundly outplayed the Hawks in the first half going up 2-0 at the break. Early in the half, John Satterla played in a free kick from 40 yards that rattled around in the Hebron box and Taylor Smith cleaned it up with a quick shot past the Hebron goalie.

Later in the half, Satterla played another long ball out of the defensive end. Cam Riley found himself alone behind the Hawk defense and flicked the ball over the Hebron goalie for a 2-0 lead.

In the second, Hebron scored their first goal about ten minutes in. The Jags allowed a long strike with about 15 minutes to go to tie the match.

Flower Mound survived numerous long throws and corner kicks to bring home a tie in an impressive road effort. Defense was solid, especially the play of the back line (Adams, Richardson, Dungey and Mulkey). Michael Martin made numerous saves that required him to go up and into crowds to fight off Hawk advancements.

In the early games, the JV-II team came away with a 0-0 tie and the JV team was defeated, 4-1.

The Jags will take spring break off and be well-rested for their match at crosstown rival, Marcus, on March 18. They will then finish up at home on Senior Night against Denton Ryan on March 21.
