The thing is that's last year and past 3 years y'all won that you can't go back to the past this is a new year and new teams with a lot of great talent Lindale, John Tyler, Whitehouse and Athens have some good players but when it comes down to it if Athens come prepared to play they can be one of the best teams in ET no doubt about it. Just hope they are prepared for tomorrow night Lindale vs Athens should be a great game to watch if Athens comes ready to play.

If Athens comes ready to play, I say 2-1. Athens in favor.

For those of you from Athens , after such a good game that was classless . I could not believe they way the players acted shooting the finger at everyone . Cussing at coach lawless . To top it off not shake the boys hands . Except for 18 and 8 . Thank you for playing a great game and showing class that is what I thought Athens should have been about

I agree. It was an exceptionally played game. But defeat usually brings out the real self. Some have class, even in defeat. Tonight we saw most Athens players dont. A couple years ago about 2/3 of the Athens varsity was suspended for most of the district.... I dont know if it was grades or not...I heard it was disciplinary in nature. Maybe this is just the character of Athens soccer. The UIL should step in and do something about this. IMO...

And toohot....so much for Lindale slipping away.

The uil should not step in because they did not break any uil rules. If the refs were there and saw it happen that is a different story. I do agree with you that something must be done. I know my kids would have lined up on the line right there and ran!!!! I understand that they are still "kids", but these are the opportunities that we get as coaches to teach them to respect the game and other people.

I dont agree with Athens behavior either but lets be honest those kids got robbed!! The refs were clearly in our side marking everything. Yes Im a Lindale fan but we have to speak the truth. Dont get me wrong, Lindale played a great match so did Athens it was close all the way. The penalty they marked in our favor was debatable, but anyways the goalie step it up and stopped it with 9 minutes left. They go to overtime and the game continues to be close. And our "goal" happens. HOW IN EARTH A GOAL GONNA BOUNCE IN BOTH POSTS AND BE A GOAL? Its simple physics if it would of being a goal the ball wouldn't of bounce from post to post and still go out. The side ref was a complete idiot marking nonexistent fouls to both sides. How I said before I dont agree with Athens behavior but lets understand it was a very intense game and those kids got robbed, they are just high school kids! and yes very classless.
Im happy we won but I wish it was in a different manner.

I don't think they got robbed , the net moved and I talked to one of the refs he said the ball was over the line. If u want to bring physics into it , the had English on it and when it hit inside of pole it spun the opposite direction .As for the play in the box the kid took him down in box without playing the ball. It happened to us 2 years ago in the playoffs that tied the game up against mt pleasant . Yes they are kids but that doesn't give them the right to act like a bunch of thugs.

and I guess lindale and lawless did nothing. innocent as always. I doubt it. I cant believe athens just acted like thugs and all people associated with lindales team were angels. doesnt make sense to me.

toohot...just stay out of it. You were not there so just shut up.

For everybody who keeps wanting to make something out of this....

The refs called the match for both teams. Every Tuesday and Friday night they go out and call the matches all over the state and do their best. I was standing not more than 20 feet from the takedown that lead to the PK. Athens player charged in and took Lindale player off his feet in the box. CLEARLY a foul. Goal scoring opportunity...questionable. Could have been a card if it was. I talked to the referee after the game and he is a well respected ref who has called for DECADES...he knows his game. Athens goalie made a great stop.

As far as the game winning goal goes...nobody was robbed. Its easy for the ball to bounce off of poles and cross the line completely. I seen it happen before. But regardless....the referee ruled it a goal so it is. End of story.

For any kid to treat a coach the way Lawless was treated is abhorrable. I do believe the UIL should be called in because they did break the rules. Laws of the Game do not allow for that type of behavior. Cussing is a card during the match and threatening a coach, referee and opponents players is technically assault. The entire team should be written up.

I dont care if its harsh but they wont act that way again if they are punished.
