Ennis soccer dribbles ahead to playoff berth

The Ennis boys soccer team has qualified for a playoff berth after a Tuesday win. Ennis beat Nacogdoches in stunning fashion, 2-1, at home in boys soccer on Tuesday. The win, the fifth in a row for the Lions, clinched a playoff berth as well as fourth place in District 17-5A. The setback cost the Dragons a share of the district championship. A year ago Ennis did similarly, beating the Lizards in overtime on a Marc Padillo kick. It dropped Nac into a first-place tie with Corsicana. In both seasons they had just defeated the Tigers in their previous game and only needed a win over the Lions. Under first year head coach Kyle Taylor, Ennis improved their record to 11-11 overall and 6-4 in the district. Last spring the Lions posted a 5-10 record. They went 4-6 in the league before a first round 1-0 playoff loss to A&M Consolidated. Tuesday’s triumph was the fourth time in district action that Nacogdoches had allowed a season-most two goals in a game. Both of them came courtesy of Rogelio Gonzalez, the Lions’ senior midfielder.
