The Burnet High School girls soccer team won its own Burnet Lady Dawgs tournament Jan. 12-14 in the first year of its existence and remained unbeaten in the process.

The Lady Dawgs (11-0) won four matches during the event and surrendered only two goals and ensured head coach Kimberly Myhre got her 100th and 101st career wins.

“Our defense and goalie, Juliet Morales, played well this weekend,” she said.

They defeated San Angelo Lake View 2-0 in the championship Jan. 14 thanks to goals by Kaycie Banton and Brook Oliva. The two also were credited with individual assists in helping each other score.

Burnet defeated Midland Greenwood 4-0 in the semifinal also Jan. 14. Caroline Valencia scored the match’s first goal thanks to an assist by Reagan Shipley. Oliva scored two and was assisted by Valencia, and Haylie Bartlett also found the back of the net thanks to a Valencia assist. 

The Lady Dawgs needed penalty kicks to move past Canyon Randall from Amarillo Jan. 13. Banton scored Burnet’s only goal in regulation. Myhre said the match required “an exciting eight shooter round of penalty kicks.”

In the nightcap Jan. 12, Burnet beat Pflugerville Connally 2-1 with Oliva scoring both goals and was assisted by Taylor Petty and Valencia.

The Lady Dawgs began the tournament with a 4-0 shutout of Taylor Jan. 12. Oliva scored two goals and Valencia and Petty scored the other two. Shipley and Mekayla Johnson were credited with the assists.
