After a strong season last year, the Byron Nelson Bobcats are looking to get right back to where they left off. VYPE DFW takes a dive into the program and lays out exactly what fans can expect from the Bobcats as they enter their new schedule!
Last season, the Bobcats posted a 63% winning percentage as they plowed through their schedule with a 12-7-1 overall record. In preseason play, Byron Nelson posted great victories over the likes of Austin Westlake, Arlington Lamar, South Grand Pairie, and more before opening district play. In district, the team defeated Southlake Carroll, V.R. Eaton, Keller Fossil Ridge, and more to finish third in their district with a 7-4-1 district record. Entering playoffs with high hopes to continue forward, the Bobcats fell in a hard-fought 3-0 match against Euless Trinity.
The team opened their season with a 2-1 victory over the Frisco Raccoons earlier this week. Led by Brenden Ferguson, Jorge Morales, Logan Jones, Jackson Tibbitts, Pierce Dahlin, and more, the Bobcats are ready to get the ball rolling through the rest of their schedule. Through non-district play, the team is set to face off against Sachse, Red Oak, Little Elm and more before opening district play in Keller against Keller Fossil Ridge on January 27th.
The Bobcats can be expected to play hard this season. With speed on their side and a dedication to the game, Byron Nelson should have no problem working through their district schedule and making another playoff appearance- this time going further than last year. Show up to games and get loud because this is a squad you aren't going to want to miss on the field this season!
The team's next game is January 5th at 4 p.m. in a tournament where they open against Sachse.
The Byron Nelson Bobcats stormed onto the field this season ready to make a name for themselves in boys high school soccer. The team has posted one of their strongest seasons yet and isn't slowing down as they look toward the first round of playoffs. VYPE DFW takes a dive into their season so far and what fans can expect as playoffs kicks off!
Byron Nelson finished third in their district with a 66% winning percentage. The defense was able to hold their opponents to a combined 21 goals all season. With victories over the likes of Arlington Lamar, Southlake Carroll, V.R. Eaton, Keller Fossil Ridge, Keller Central, and more, the Bobcats were able to pave a path that led right into post-season play. Byron Nelson posted a 12-6-1 overall record (7-4-1 in district play) by playing quick-witted offense. The team also has a sharp defense that is ready to shut down any advances on scoring!
Playoffs isn't necessarily going to be a cakewalk for the Bobcats. During the first round of play, Byron Nelson is taking on Euless Trinity (16-4-2)- a team who is known for being absolutely good at what they do. However, the Bobcats still have plenty of tricks up their sleeves offensively that will keep Byron Nelson in the running throughout the game. With the ability to score quickly and set a strong pace, the Bobcat offense can be expected to play hard from start to finish. Byron Nelson's defense should be watched as they have been able to put stops to some of the best forwards in the DFW area this season.
Game time is 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 24 at Mustang Panther Stadium in Grapevine, Texas.
