Introducing Cinderella: Clint set for Regional Semifinals

Sports

The Clint boys soccer team is the classic ‘Cinderella’ story of the Class 4A high school soccer playoffs. The Lions went 0-6 in district play, but have since made a run to the Regional Semifinals for the first time in school history.

Clint has outscored their opponents 10-2 in the playoffs and the gameplan against Stephenville on Friday is much of the same.

“We expect to keep our plan,” said head coach Carlos Arreola. “We want to play aggressive, pressure the ball, and hopefully we can capitalize on our finishes.”

The roster is largely made up of seniors and their recent success has been a breath of fresh air.

“At first it was difficult because of how district was going for us,” said senior forward Christopher Prieto. “Right now we are playing really well and I think we can go farther.”

Kickoff is set for 4:30 p.m. MDT in Justin, Texas.
