The Martin Tigers are the only LISD team remaining in the soccer play-offs. The team is currently in the sectional round of the play-offs. The sectional round is an additional round played in the 4A district because there is too many teams. The Tigers will play Rockport Fulton on Friday at memorial stadium in Corpus Christi. Martin may be the only LISD team remaining in the playoffs, but they are still far from their seasons goals. "I don't think we've met them so far. Our expectation is to win state. We've been saying that since the beginning. I think expecting less will be selling the kids short. We have a great team, their potential is there to win the whole thing." The team has a good mix of players of sophomores, juniors and seniors, and even has a freshman on the squad this season. They will play their third round in Alice. The Tigers have had good luck their so far, winning their previous two playoff games there. The United boys are advancing to the second round, they will take on Brownsville Rivera next week. Time and date will be determined Monday. On the girls side, the Longhorns are also in the second round of the playoffs. They will play Los Fresnos in the area round; time and date still to be determined. The United South girls will play Saturday at Roma against Brownsville Hanna. Tentative time for that game is 1 p.m.
