Richard Zowie/The Highlander

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.

Marble Falls High quiet after threat arrests

Two juveniles are in custody charged with terroristic threat in connection with an incident at Marble Falls High School (MFHS) today, Feb. 16, that illustrates the ready response of local schools and law inforcement.

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.

The club is in the middle of its membership drive and is encouraging local residents to join to support Mustang Athletics.

The memberships include the following packages: Family ($25), Mustang ($50), Bronze ($150), Silver ($300), Gold ($575) and Platinum $1,000). Bronze and above come with two general admission passes to all Marble Falls Independent School District athletic events, while the pricier ones include various special recognitions.
