FORT WORTH, Texas – Outdoor soccer was played indoors Friday for only the second time in the 15-year National Elite Prep Showcase history.
Below-freezing temperatures in the Dallas-Fort Worth area led to the cancellation of all outdoor high school contests, but NEPS was able to surge on by using the Sam Baugh Indoor Practice Facility on the Texas Christian University campus. Thirteen time-shortened matches took place on TCU’s indoor football field that was stretched to its maximum width to handle soccer. The venue left specators, players and coaches ringing the facility, just inches away from the out-of-bounds markers.
FORT WORTH, Texas – It seems only fitting that Amy Burr scored on a night that was summed up as “Brrrr” to kick off the National Elite Prep Showcase.
Burr, a junior, scored the second goal as Plano West (Texas) played to a 2-2 draw with SIMA FAB 50 No. 26 Harvard-Westlake (Calif.). The game time temperature was 36, but the wind chill put it at 26, according to weather.com. By the time the late matches kicked off, the temperature was near 32 with the wind chill knocking that down to the low 20s.
