Bellville soccer

The Brahmas boys’ soccer team saw their season come to an end in the first round of the playoffs last week after losing to Wharton 2-1. It was coming off a two-match losing streak against Sealy and Stafford with the team’s last win coming in late February. Bellville kept the game close through the first half as the match was tied at one-all at halftime. Wharton’s defense found its footing and held the Brahmas scoreless in the second half. Bellville finished the season with a 10-10-2 record overall with a 3-4-1 district record.

After finishing the season with a perfect 8-0 district record, the Lady Brahmas’ soccer team kept their hot streak going through the first round of the playoffs blowing Sweeny out 11-0. It was their 10th win in a row with their last loss coming in January. They kept that streak going in the next round of the playoffs against Navasota on Monday shutting them out 8-0. Their next game will be against the winner of a playoff match against Brazosport and Madisonville.

Bellville baseball and softball

The Bellville Brahmas’ baseball team brought their district record to 2-1 after beating Columbia on the road last week. The Brahmas opened their district play with a win against Sealy but stumbled against Stafford in a 4-2 loss. It was just their second time this season scoring two or fewer runs in a loss. Against Columbus, Bellville got off to a hot start scoring three runs in the top of the first but their pitching struggled early leading to a tight 3-2 lead for much of the game. In the fifth inning, Bellville extended their lead to 5-2 and would tack on another run to secure the win. The Brahmas currently sit in second place within the district.

Despite their struggles on offense, the Lady Brahmas’ softball team managed to pull their district record above .500 as well with a win against Columbus on the road. The Lady Brahmas won their game 4-2 after a 4-3 loss to Needville earlier in the week. They have failed to score more than four runs since March 9 and have gone 3-3 in that span. Despite their offensive struggles, the team is 3-2 in district play which places them third in the district and their most recent win over Columbus gives them the tiebreaker against the Cardinals who have the same district record.
