The Marble Falls Boys Soccer Team is exhuberant and all smiles late on March 29 after defeating Austin Lanier in bi-district play. After two overtimes and 1-1 tie coming the Stangs came frombehind to tie Austin Lanier at a goal apiece, kept them tied for two overtime periods and then won the match, 4-3, on penalty kicks in overtime. Next for the Mustangs will be Victoria East Tuesday, April 3.

In their March 29 bi-district soccer playoff game, both Marble Falls and Austin Lanier each received at least one yellow card (a warning, as opposed to a red card, which means ejection).

“I wasn’t surprised at all,” said Mustangs Soccer Coach Rick Hoover. “That is what you expect in the playoffs. Both teams were fighting for their season to not end.”

After the Vikings scored in the first half to take a 1-0 lead, the Mustangs scored about halfway through the second half to tie the game at 1.

It stayed that way through several near-misses by both teams in two, 10-minute overtime periods, before Marble Falls ultimately won in a penalty shootout, 4-3.

The matter was handled so quickly and quietly that most staff and students were unaware it had happened. And, in a letter to parents issued later in the day, MFHS Principal Damon S. Adams said, "We are confident that there is no threat to our students or our school."

Shortly after 9 a.m., a report about the issue was made to Marble Falls Police Department (MFPD) Officer Tim McIntyre, the school resource officer. The school administration was notified and MFPD detectives responded to assist in the investigation that revealed a second student was involved.
