Back-to-Back Region V Championships for the Lady Wranglers: The Road to the National Tournament
October 29, 2012

The Cisco College Lady Wranglers Soccer Team struck gold again Saturday with a 2-0 win over Hill College to clinch the Region V title for the second year in a row. The Lady Wranglers have now defeated Hill College for the second time this season, 2-1 and 2-0 respectively, ending the Lady Rebels outstanding 12 win season. The dynamic Irish duo Gemma Matthews and Shauna Peare delivered both Cisco goals (34’, 53’ respectively) to clinch the victory in front of a home crowd on a late and chilly Saturday evening. Assist leaders Cristina Montealvo and Makala Paschal did not disappoint as each added yet another assist to their ongoing battle for point leader.

               Now, the Lady Wranglers will face their newly formed rival Tyler Junior College, the defending national champion, Friday November 2nd at 4pm in Tyler. This will be the third time these teams will face off this year after a 3-0 loss at Tyler September 25th, then a 2-2 overtime thriller October 9th at home. Tyler clinched the Region XIV title yesterday in a close 2-1 over Navarro College at home. With each team on a full head of steam after winning their respective conferences, Friday’s game will prove to be a battle royal in the East. Cisco is looking for their first national tournament berth ever, and Tyler is looking to make yet another run at the National Title under Coach Corey Rose.  

Lady Wranglers Rope The Title
October 31, 2011

The Cisco College Lady Wranglers wrestled past defending Region V champions Western Texas College Wednesday night in a 2-1 battle. Each team had reached the conference final after advancing in their previous semi-final games two days prior to the showdown. During the regular season, each team managed to defeat the other, Cisco first defeating WTC 3-0 at home then WTC shutting out Cisco 1-0 in Synder, so the final was guaranteed to be a difficult one before the teams even stepped onto the pitch. 


The high emotionally charged atmosphere at Cisco's home field proved to be advantageous for the Lady Wranglers as it was the largest crowd to date. Sophomore Mal Cortinas (Waco, TX) opened up the Lady Wrangler scoring in the first half with a chip from outside the box from into the upper 90. Freshman teammate Makala Paschal (Waco, TX) volleyed the ball over the back line as Cortinas out ran the WTC backline and finished beautifully. With the competition heating up, freshman Brazilian international player Mirella Mattos tied the match midway through the second half off an upper 90 shot from 20 yards out, but Paschal sealed the deal for the Lady Wranglers with four minutes to go in regulation off a chip from freshman Katherine Meany (Blackrock County, Ireland) once again over the back line. The Lady Wranglers then fought off several shots from WTC, but sophomore goalkeeper Chanel Felder (Austin, TX) stayed strong and helped ring in the victory for Cisco. 


WTC had won back-to-back championships defeating Cisco College in the finals the two previous conference championship matches. This is the first Region V Championship the Lady Wranglers have won since 2007, and is Coach Drago's first championship as head coach. He was quoted saying "this was a very exciting win for us after a very hard fought season filled with ups and downs. Our fans were fantastic, we had support coming from the entire town, and we couldn't be happier with the result. SCC is going to be a tough battle, we have never seen them play and do not know much about their style of play; it will be a real test."

Now the Lady Wranglers must face the no. 2 team in the nation, the fighting Artichokes of Scottsdale Community College (19-0), Saturday, November 5 at 2:00pm in Scottsdale, AZ in the District A Championship. The winner next travels to the NJCAA Women's D1 Soccer Championship in Melbourne, FL November 17-19. 

Cisco College Knocks Off Ranger College to Advance to Conference Final Monday Night
October 25, 2011

Freshman Jeanette Lujan of El Paso, Texas scored a pair of winning goals Monday night against 3rd ranked (conference) Ranger College. The Lady Wranglers ran over the Lady Rangers in front of an amazing crowd to advance to the Conference Final Wednesday night against Western Texas College. In the previous two meetings against Ranger College, the Lady Wranglers won the first match 4-0, then went on to lose the second match 0-1 just the week before the Semi-Final match-up. The first half went scoreless as the Lady Wranglers out-shot the Lady Rangers, but the frustration did not shake up the Lady Wranglers as two goals were scored in the second half to seal the 2-0 victory.

Coach Drago had to say about the match "the crowd and environment made the game even more exciting and rallied us to come out with the 'W' late in the game. We hope to see an even larger and rowdier crowd for the Final Wednesday against WTC. They don't like us, we don't like them; it will be a battle for the entire 90(+)."

Cisco College and WTC meet in the Region 5 Final Wednesday 10/26 at 6 p.m. at Chesley Field in Cisco, TX.
