Boys Varsity Soccer · Wildcats drop one, tie one at home tourney


Matt Corley had a sinking feeling in his gut.

After remaining scoreless against Smithson Valley for most of the match, his Temple Wildcats gave up a goal with just less than 8 minutes to play as the sun began to set Friday at Wildcat Stadium on Day 2 of the season-opening Kickoff Showcase.

Temple faced the same situation earlier in the day against Odessa Permian, which scored in the final 10 minutes to down the Wildcats 1-0.

“The goals were almost identical,” Corley said. “The only difference was the goal this morning was outside the (18-yard box) and the one this evening was just inside the 18. Same location, same corner, same everything. It was almost identical.”
