District 5-6A Roundup - Keller Central move to the top

Published 2/16/2015 5:33:55 AM by staff from dallas

Friday held the match we had all been waiting for and it was a wild one.  Lots of fouls and physical play between Byron Nelson and Keller Central yielded a shocking finish as Central earned a penalty kick right at the death.  I mean literally there was no time on the clock.  Abraham DeAnda converted and Central emerged with the 1-0 victory pulling into a tie at the top with Byron Nelson.

Elsewhere, Keller Fossil Ridge lost once again in the final minutes falling at Keller 1-0.  Timber Creek opened a can of whoop on slumping Denton Guyer winning 4-0 while Northwest picked up their first win beating Denton Guyer 2-0.  Now four teams all sit within three points of the top heading into the final matchday of the first half of District 5-6A play.

Keller Central 1  Byron Nelson 0
An Abraham DeAnda penalty kick decided the match in the final second and the Chargers pull into a first place tie with Byron Nelson.

Keller 1  Fossil Ridge 0
Another late loss by Fossil that will certainly come back to haunt them in the end.  That's three district games they have been tied or leading well into the second half only to lose.  The Indians surge into a playoff position with the win.

Timber Creek 4  Denton Guyer 0
What has happened to Denton Guyer?  Four straight losses now and not looking good at all as they tumble down the standings.  Timber Creek, on the other hand, suddenly has real playoff aspirations.

Northwest 2 Denton Ryan 0
The battle at the bottom saw Northwest pick up their first win of the district season.  The win pulls them past Denton Ryan and out of last place.
