BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA – Matches were moved up to early morning start times in order to beat the heat here Monday, but the high temperatures were maintained on the playing field as teams at the U.S. Youth Soccer Region III Championships played for their national championship survival.U15 Girls: Hurricane FC (OK) 2, Dallas Texans 1Early on, the Oklahoma side were imposing their will on the game, making it very difficult for Dallas to get out of its own end. Still, Hurricane weren’t able to create any real quality chances on goal as the Texans’ back line, anchored by excellent center back Taylor Jackson, held firm.Hurricane coach John Rhein implored his team to be patient and look for opportunities to combine passes. Midfielders Krissi Killion and Katie Sprouse seemed eager to do just this and it was Killion who ultimately took matters into her own hands, lashing home a strike from 30 yards to give her team a 1-0 lead.As is often the case the opening goal relaxed the match and made it more enjoyable to watch. Texans started getting forward more, but it was a giveaway in front of the Hurricane goal that gifted Amanda Stickney a scoring opportunity and the Texans’ midfielder put the chance away to make it 1-1.
