Round Rock downed Cedar Park 6-2 last week and came into Tuesday night's
contest as the team to beat for inter-district play.  As they were the
home team they made it a point to leave the Cedar Park (Saturday game)
score of 6-2 up on the scoreboard for warm-ups.

In the early minutes it appeared as if Round Rock was the team to beat
with several early challenges on the Ranger goal.  The Vista backline
settled down and then commanded the night handily.

At the 25 minute mark Freshman defender Tiffany..... made a backline
overlap challenge and topped the Round Rock Goalie to take a 1-0 lead.
 Vista went into half time 2-0 by way of another Vista goal provided
by.....

In the second half the Vista backline continued to dominate play with
few challenges on goal, which provided opportunities for the front
line to advance on the Round Rock goal almost at will.  Vista went up
3-0 off a redirected corner which found Freshman winger Erynn Johns on
the back post for a header goal.  Vista then sent their game into high
gear and added two late goals on a breakaway from Johns and well a
placed distance shot from .....

Vista Ridge Defenders Sophie Taylor and Brooke.....were key in posting
the shutout.  While Katerine Fannous and Samantha Mayock were
standouts for Round Rock.

Play resumes today for Round Rock vs Vandegrift and Vista Ridge vs
Westlake.
